Even though it’s 32C (90F) here as I write this, I’ve been thinking about soup a lot lately.
For one of the February bonus trainings for members of my online cooking school, I created a deep dive into the world of soup.
It was a great reminder of the joys of a big bowl of soup. Regardless of the season.
In fact it reminded me of one of the best soup experiences of my life…
A giant bowl of steaming noodle and dumpling soup in a back alley in sweltering Bangkok.
Apart from the deliciousness, the memory of this soup stayed with me because of how unexpectedly refreshing it was.
Today I have some of my favourite simple 5-ingredient soups. Perfect for weeknight dinners, whether you’re currently enjoying the last Summer days or on the constant lookout for signs of Spring.
6 Simple 5-Ingredient Soups
1. Zucchini Laksa
Laksa is a super delicious spicy, creamy coconut based noodle soup from Malaysia. The original version uses rice or wheat noodles (or sometimes both!) but I prefer this lighter version using my favourite spiralized vegetable.
2. Yuuummy Spiced Tomato Soup
Made with all ingredients from the pantry. This comforting soup is a fab one to have in your repertoire for when you unexpectedly need a quick satisfying meal.
3. Simple Mushroom Soup
One of the reasons I started my blog was because I had forgotten my favourite mushroom soup recipe. This isn’t the exact one I lost, but it’s a very satisfying bowl of mushroomy love.
4. No-Cry Roast Onion Soup
I’ve always loved a traditional French onion soup, but hadn’t made it at home because of the thought of chopping all those onions. And all those tears! Then I had the inspiration to roast the onions first. So easy. So good. No tears.
5. White Bean & Eggplant Soup
Super easy. I love how the roast eggplant and white beans combine to make a super silky creamy warming bowl of goodness.
6. Addictive Green Curry of Broccoli Soup
Up there as one of the most popular Stonesoup recipes of all-time. This spicy meal-in-a-bowl is spiked with chunks of broccoli. And the secret ingredient? Peanut butter!
