Homemade Soup Day

National Homemade Soup Day is on the 4th of February. There is something very comforting about a nice mug or bowl of homemade soup on a wet February day.


Soup is:-

  • easy to make and a great dish to teach the young ones

  • cheap ingredients or a great way to use up vegetable in the fridge

  • a cheap and nutritious way of feeding the family inbetween their online classes

  • not only great for lunch but good between meals if hunger pangs strike before dinner


This spinach soup is a vibrant green, really tasty and quick to make. In spring time you can swap the spinach for nettles for a fresh spring soup.
