Now that autumn is well and truly upon us, chilly evenings call for bowls of steaming hot, nourishing soup. Quick and easy to make, soup is the perfect meal for busy week nights when you don’t have the time or energy to cook a complicated dish – it is also easy to make in bulk, so you can take it in for lunch the following day, or freeze for a later date. Requiring minimal effort, they also mean less washing-up and less mess in the kitchen.

The following 8 recipes are all packed full of goodness, high in vitamins that will help your body fend off any un-welcome winter viruses, as well as very tasty. Deliciously wholesome and hearty, they are ideal for the new season.
