Book: Sara Lewis - 200 Super Soups

Nothing says winter quite like a steaming mug of soup with a hunk of crusty bread. It’s also a cheat’s way to get loads of healthy ingredients inside the kids.

Or you can opt for a dash of decadence with swirls of cream, flavoured butters or crunchy croutons. This little recipe book will provide ideas for new flavour combinations and trusted recipes for old favourites.

In the Speedy Soups section find quick recipes such as pea, lettuce and lemon soup and red chicken and coconut broth.

For summer months find a cool and cleansing selection of chilled soups and in the winter selection choose from recipes such as veg soup with bacon dumplings and cock-a-leekie.

Impress guests with crab bisque, or chicken and tarragon soup with puff pastry and others in the Something Special chapter. Finally there’s a selection of international favourites: Scottish cullen skink, chicken mulligatawny and French onion soup.

The food is beautifully photographed and recipes clearly laid out. You won’t want to buy supermarket soup again in a hurry.
