Live life on

the veg

Fresh soup is a quick, easy way to get more veg in your diet. Most things in a Riverford veg box can be turned into a really tasty bowlful: from the season's best, to the last stragglers at the bottom of your fridge. And you don't need to be a pro chef, either. So, where to begin?

Soup your way to a healthy 2019

Our favourite soup recipes

Squash, Tomato & Harissa Soup

Cauliflower, Leek & Barley Broth

Kale, Spinach, Lemon & Nutmeg Soup

Beetroot, Coconut, Ginger & Lime Soup

A sturdy winter soup, left chunky and rustic. Instead of carrot, a seasonal parsnip brings rooty sweetness, while cumin and nutmeg add a hint of warming spice.

Grating the beetroot seems a bit fiddly, but it will save time in the long run as grated beetroot cooks faster. Don't be shy with the lime at the end - it really enlivens the whole thing.

Kale darkens as it cooks, but the soup is reinvigorated by the spinach and parsley, added at the very end to preserve their fresh taste and bright green colour.

Roasting some of the veg creates sticky, caramelised edges and really deepens the flavour. You could spoon the harissa over the top rather than blend it in, for a fancy flourish.
