Start of Soup Season
AUTUMN. For me the realisation that the seasons are changing means one thing. THE SNOW IS COMING! Countdown to the ski season can begin. Now I’m fully aware that unless you are a snow obsessed ex seasonaire like me then the seasonal changes are far from ideal, and definitely not something to get euphoric about!
HOWEVER ladies and gents, there is still hope. We can ALL still get excited about wooly jumpers, bobble hats and wait for it, my favourite autumn essential…the hearty soup!!!
Let me introduce you to my comforting Spinach and Mushroom soup. This soup had humble beginnings, originating from leftovers and odd bits of veg, it is now a solid autumn fav. Beyond easy to make and all in all will cost you about £3. £1 a serving..not bad. Now lets save the pennies for the slopes 😉
CHOP – 1 onion finely CHOP
SPRINKLE – dried mixed herbs
CRUSH – 2 cloves of garlic
DICE – 300g of closed cup mushrooms

Saute the onion in butter and garlic until soft
