Winter is coming.
It kinda came earlier than expected in New South Wales with all the rain and hail, and rain again.
Soups are definitely in season, especially the healthy ones. I like doing my own soups because I know what goes into it and I can be sure it’s all good and natural ingredients. Sometimes the problem with making soup, for me that is, is I forget to check it.
Soup turns black. Not a good thing.
Cooking with the Tefal Cuisine Companion means I can leave it in there to cook and forget about it and it doesn’t burn.
This time I made Chicken and Sweet Corn soup. You cook the chicken breasts in the steamer first before shredding it and cooking it using the soup function. A healthy warm cup during the cold season is like a warm blanket.
Next is the Cream of Capsicum with Chorizo, which immediately became my new favourite soup after the first time I made it (I’ve made it a couple of times since then).
I love a bit of spice in my soup. I sometimes put Tabasco in my food. The chorizo adds a very nice zing to it. I also chop up some chorizo and grill it a bit before adding it to the soup for some chewy bits. Definitely very yummy.
Add more paprika if you want more spice. Or salt, depending on your preference.
The soups can be made in big batches. I freeze half to save for another day. This also means I don’t have to cook some days, which is always a bonus.
What about you? What’s your favourite winter soup?
