Winter squash makes a fantastic soup. Try swapping acorn, Hubbard, or even pumpkin for the butternut. Maple syrup and apple bring out its sweetness, and using curry powder or sage will change its flavour profile depending on your mood.
It doesn’t get more comforting than a simmering pot of chicken and soft, fluffy dumplings. This one is made using an instant pot, so you've got a comforting classic ready to eat in no time at all.
Let the slowcooker do the hard work for you with this hearty, comforting chili. Toasting the spices just before adding them helps boost their flavour, lending more dimension to the dish.
This mellow sweet potato soup is low in fat yet loaded with fibre, vitamins and minerals and is particularly high in beta-carotene. Red lentils contribute protein. Bonus: they don’t need to be presoaked. Just toss them split in half straight into the soup and cook along with the vegetables.
For a different take on ham and bean soup try smoked turkey instead. Paired with white beans and kale it's a winner of a soup.
