Monday meal ideas: SOUP

So it appears that Autumn was entirely skipped for lots of you (as you know we got a good show down here) but this morning was very wintery indeed. Frost, minus temps and now a gloriously sunny #maintenancemonday for me with the world’s biggest washing pile (thanks to new flanno sheets on everyone’s beds).

So now it’s cold you know what that means? SOUP weather! I made a quick batch for one on the weekend and devoured it for lunch and dinner. That’s what I love most about soup…it lasts and lasts and lasts. Here’s a few of my favourites that I love to whip up…hope you do too!


Pumpkin & ginger soup
Bottom of the veggie crisper soup
Chicken noodle soup
Tomato & risoni soup
Bert’s wonton soup
Roasted pumpkin soup
Zucchini & parmesan soup
Mushroom, spinach & pea soup

Hope you guys all have a lovely Monday ahead of you…I’m running around like a crazy woman chasing my tail and a 12 month old…busy times!


  1. Soup and flanno sheets are The Best Things about cold weather. I made a big arsed batch of matzo ball soup a few days ago which is still feeding us. Need to give Bert’s wonton soup a go next!

  2. Hi Beth, just wanted to say thankyou for your blog. I only found it by chance a coup,e of weeks ago, really enjoying it ☺️

    Oooooooo Pumpkin is my absolute favourite. But you have reminded me I have leeks and potato so I can whip up a potato & leeks soup for lunch tomorrow. Best bit is the thermomix will do it for me in about 20mins!!

    I was trying to save the chicken noodle soup for later but i couldn’t find a printable version, if you have one could i please have a copy??

    Kindest regards
