Time to set the table and sit down for that delicious bowl of soup. Because let's face it, everyone loves a warm, soothing soup to get us through the chilly months ahead. We all have our classic and simple soup recipe that comes out at this time of year.
Our favourite soup right now, pumpkin. It is a family favourite and goes perfectly with a fresh loaf of sourdough bread and some butter.
Here is a quick and easy recipe to make this week. We suggest making a bit extra to have for lunch the next day, perfect for reheating.
