Here in the UK the clocks went back an hour last weekend, signalling the end of British Summer Time and the start of darker evenings as the autumn and winter weather draws in.
In anticipation of the colder weather ahead, here are a seasonal six warming and restorative soups from the Circus Gardener’s Kitchen archives to keep you nourished and healthy.
potato, rosemary and chilli soup
Inexpensive and quick to put together, this wonderful soup packs lots of delicious flavour as well as heat and nourishment.
Horseradish has a sharp, hot, pungent aroma, a great match for rich, sweet, earthy beetroot as this flavour packed soup demonstrates.
Swede and carrot are a classic pairing and here they are combined with just the right amount of thyme and smoked paprika to produce a vibrant, rich and deeply satisfying soup – a great winter warmer.
A rich and comforting soup based on traditional Moroccan tagine flavours. The sweet chermoula oil provides a beautiful hot and sweet counterbalance.
A powerful, vibrant and truly life-affirming soup, with all the goodness of iron-rich kale and meaty shiitake mushrooms.
