Warming Soup In The Winter – Just What You Need To Make Everyone At Home Happy

Now that the snow started falling heavily, I was thinking about different easy ways to warm everyone in the evening – my husband comes back from work and the little ones have been at school the whole day.

I recently found one easy recipe for soup that I decided to make tonight. I prepared something hearty, wholesome, yummy and healthy by using different vegetables and added a little twist that, I hope, makes the soup even more delicious – sun-dried tomatoes (that I normally use for sandwich fillers or like party options).

I truly believe that a cup of soup in the cold winter evenings can make everyone smile, even my little one who is very grumpy when he is tired 🙂 And when everyone at home is comfortable, warm and a little bit relaxed, even though outside is freezing cold and snowy, the evenings are really pleasant. I hope you can feel the same way enjoying the following recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 1-2 tbsp sunflower oil

  • 1-2 onions

  • 600-750gr carrots

  • 3-4 potatoes

  • 50-100gr sun-dried tomatoes

How much sun-dried tomatoes you put depends how much you like them. My family loves them and I put even more than that, but, if you prefer not to use them, don’t.

  • 1litre vegetable or chicken stock

  • half a glass orange juice

  • salt and pepper

Preparation:

  1. Cut the onions in slices and fry them a little bit, just to soften them

  2. Add the other vegetables – carrots and potatoes in cubes, and sun-dried tomatoes

You can add a teaspoon of sugar, just to counter the vinegar taste of the sun-dried tomatoes if you want.

  1. Add the stock and the seasoning, boil for 25-30 minutes

  2. Just before you take the pot off the hot-plate, add the orange juice and let it boil for a minute or two

  3. Purée the soup using the kitchen blender

Warm yourself with this delicious soup and if you have any suggestions or you want to contact me, please do not hesitate to do so.

Enjoy your evening!

    Hi Ellie, sounds tasty. I love soup, I make it quite often, and the chunkier the better. I admit I can’t stand cooking, but I never mind making soup, especially because for some reason I can’t seem to ruin it. Looking forward to seeing more recipes.

      Thank you. I agree with you that when making soup you can’t do anything wrong, everytime it tastes delicious. I tend to make the creamed soups thicker so that it to look like a meal instead of just soup, because my little one is very fussy.
      Please send me some of your favourite soup recipes to try.
      All the best.
