Summer is without doubt over and now it’s time to get used to the coats and the scarves again! After a long week (or maybe just a long day) at work, when the weather gets cloudy and chilly, what’s best than a warm and tasty soup?
Here are 5 amazing recipes that you would like to try during the Autumn and Winter!
What about cooking a soup which is healthy, easy to prepare and that you can easily freeze to have it whenever you would like? Besides, tomatoes are in season during the autumn and contain a huge amount of lycopene, which is a natural pigment that gives some vegetables and fruits the red colour. It is also an antioxidant: a substance that protects against cell damage. Isn’t that great?
Are you a huge fan pumpkin season? Well we sure are! This creamy soup will definitely warm up your chilly day! Furthermore, butternut squash is full of fibres and vitamins, including A, C, E and B that help us to fight off any cold during the infamous “flu season”. Be sure to add some chilly powder if you fancy adding little heat to this dish.
Black beans are synonymous with being involved in spicy dishes, and this soup is not different. It’s healthy, super fast to make and just has the right amount of spice to help you feel warm on the inside and outside! The Black Bean soup is rich in proteins and very low in fat. Did you know that black beans are full of calcium and magnesium, contributing to build and maintain your bones’ strength?
Who doesn’t love a simple, cheesy and warm dish? The comfort food staple presented in a different format: a classic tasty dish and easy to cook. Broccoli are also a great source of vitamins, in particular the vitamin K which is essential for the functioning of many proteins involved in blood clotting. Topping it all off is cheese, ensuring taste is prioritised over health…
It’s that night during the week when you want to try something exotic but budget friendly. What about a Lebanese Lentil Soup? Get out of your comfort zone and spice up your meal with turmeric or smoked paprika. Tucking into something exotic without breaking the bank, perfect for a Netflix night!
