I am firm believer that a hot meal in winter can really lift the spirits after a long day. Whether it gives you the energy for a little late excercise (not straight after), a kick up the but to do that piece of housework you’ve been putting off,  or that winding down feeling, a decent hot meal is a cosy end to a cold day!

 Try my slightly spicy chunky soup recipe below! Full of veggies and really easy to make! Remember you can add other veggies to include your fav’s!


  •   2 Tbsp Oil
  •   2 Leeks
  •   1 Large Red Onion
  •   1/2 a Bunch of Spring Onions
  •   1 Chilli
  •   2 Swede
  •   6 Carrots
  •   Baby Potatoes
  •   3 Garlic Cloves
  •   2 Tsp Mixed Herbs
  •   3 Tbsp medium Curry Powder
  •   2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
  •   2 Cups of Vegetable Stock

 Or my favourite way….

  •    2 Sachet’s of “Graces”Cock Soup (Caribbean soup mix) Dilute according to packet instructions.


 1. Heat oil in a large pot

2. Simply chop all vegetables to the size you prefer (I like it chunky)

3. Throw all veggie ingredients into pot and fry up for about 5 mins until onions are softening.

4. Add curry powder and Mixed herbs and stir

5. Continue to let the veggies fry up for another 5 mins, stirring occasionally to avoid sticking, 6. Add Stock or Cock Soup sachets mix well…add water if necessary

7. Add soy sauce

8. Bring to the boil, then let simmer on a low heat for about 1 – 1.5 hours. Or until all vegetables are tender.

9. Add salt (if you must) /pepper to taste.

Enjoy with a Crusty Wholemeal Bread Roll……Delicious!
