Jasmine’s Simple Soups to Warm The Soul

Oh the weather outside is frightful… But what that does mean is that we get to cosy up in our blankets and slippers with loved ones, and connect with one another around a lovely warming home-cooked dish. What better way to warm up and nurture your digestion than with a good ol’ bowl of soup? Sounds romantic, even fairytale-like in the daily rush of life, but honestly nothing’s easier than a one-pot dish to feed a crowd. Say hello to the favourites that I rely on at this time of year — there’s certainly something for everyone!

Cumin Beetroot Soup

A ruby red soup I discovered at the COMO Metropolitan Hotel on Park Lane and to which I added cinnamon (by mistake, but it works!!!), this one is a winter warmer if there ever was one, thanks to the earthy beets and fire-starting spices.

Winter Sunset Soup With Ginger, Cumin and Rosemary

This soup is amazing in the run-up to Christmas, and endlessly adaptable with all the bits you’ve got in the fridge.

Super Supper Mung Dal Soup

Mung dal is a total essential in my house, so I always have the ingredients for this golden wonder ready to go. It’s both light and super nourishing — perfect for a chilly night.

Chicken Soup for the Soul With Gram Dumplings

The healing power of chicken soup needs no introduction, but here’s my take on the age-old classic, slow-cooked and made extra hearty with the chickpea flour dumplings.

Cashew and Cauliflower Soup With Oregano, Chilli and Lemon Zest Gomashio

Inspired by my travels to Greece earlier this year, this one is so filling and satisfying, and topped with a zesty, tangy gomashio that will soon become a favourite in your house.

Boxing Day Soup

Many families have a traditional Boxing Day recipe they make to use up all the leftovers from Christmas dinner. In my family, it’s soup! This one is my other half’s mum’s recipe, and can be made with just about anything you served up on the 25th.
