One sausage is all you need to ramp up the flavour in this fast fish stew. Quick enough to make on a weeknight after work!
Effortless Tomato Fish Stew
Fragrant White Bean Soup
This first course soup packs a fibre punch due to the navy beans. Don’t forget to drain the beans after cooking them or the soup will be watery. Serve with hearty wholegrain bread and some crudités to turn it into a main course. Never salt the water when cooking dried beans, or the beans will not fully soften.
Roasted Tomato Soup with Cheesy Flatbread
Roasting tomatoes is a perfect use for over-ripe tomatoes that are too mushy to use any other way. You can use roasted tomatoes in a sandwich, in a pasta dish, or as here, in a home-made tomato soup. You can use smoked paprika in this soup, if you’d like. Tomatoes are a wonderful source of the anti-oxidant lycopene.
Butternut Squash & Black Bean Chowder
Fall flavours of squash, sage and corn make this a wonderful cold weather meal. Pancetta gives this hearty vegetable chowder a lift.
Gingered Carrot Soup
A lovely first course soup. Use whatever curry powder you have on hand; you may want to decrease it slightly if you use hot curry powder. Serve dolloped with Greek yogurt and sprinkled with chopped chives, if desired.
Swiss Chard Peasant Soup
Simple and hearty, this home-style soup is great on a cold day. Serve with a thick slice of wholegrain bread, perfect for dipping.
Black Bean, Tomato and Lime Soup
Beans and lime juice give this soup a south of the border feel. You can use fresh or canned plum tomatoes. Serve with cornbread, whole grain tortillas or other whole grain bread.
Corn and Salmon Chowder
Salmon is fatty, but it’s a good-for-you fat, with plenty of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. No need to cut the salmon in chunks before putting it in the pot; roughly break it up with a spoon after it’s cooked.
Spanish Chick Pea Soup with Spinach and Chorizo
Sure to warm you up, this soup gets its kick from spicy Chorizo sausage and is perfect with a slice of PC Blue Menu Baguette. Substitute vegetable stock and omit chorizo for a meatless soup.
Greek Yogurt Borscht
We put our twist on this vibrant beet soup by adding our creamy Greek yogurt instead of the traditional sour cream.
