Good for soup and symphonies…

Sometimes when we’re thinking about dinner, and the shift from summer to autumn, our thoughts turn to soup.

You know, soups made from scratch, with a foundation of homemade stock and that great soupy trinity of carrot, celery and onion (or leek).

Sometimes when we’re pottering about on locavore and sustainability websites, we come across a gem such as this.

Now…I’d love to know about your all-time favourite soup; why you like it, memories made while supping its nurturing deliciousness, super-soup ingredients… all of that. Please share with a comment!

Convinced soup-making is all together too time-consuming?  You need this.

      Dabney, carrot, avocado and lemon sounds delightful!

  2. As a child, I loved my Mum’s bacon bone & vegie soup. It was so delicious – soft noodles, barley, peas and so many vegies, I ate bowls and bowls of it – it made me look forward to winter. Also, I found that her cauliflower soup was the perfect substitute for creamy soups as I was a non-dairy child (and still am). BTW the video is GOLD!

      Thanks Sarah!
