Coming into winter, I wanted to make a soup recipe thread. What are you fave soups, and how do you make it?
Pumpkin and Lentil Soup
1 large pumpkin
1 tin of lentils
2 cups of water
Chopped chives to serve
Chop pumpkin into small pieces. Add pumpkin, lentils and water together in slow cooker. Leave to cook on low for the whole day. Use a stick blender through the slow cooker to puree. Serve topped with fresh, chopped chives.

I have been making this one recently:
- red capsicum
- water and stock powder
Throw it all in slow cooker and then puree. It's quite zingy.

Someone posted this one last winter and it become a family favorite here
slow cooker chicken corn soup
2 chicken breasts diced
2 tins of creamed corn
2 ltrs of chicken stock
2 pkts of 2 min noodles crushed
and 1 onion.
cook on low for 6 to 8 hrs
My favourite is
Roast pumpkin and bacon soup
in large roasting dish cook
1/2 a pumpkin than cover the pumpkin with
1 diced onion
2 good hands full of diced bacon
2 cloves of diced garlic
a good shake of paprika
Once cooked if like a super thick soup like me just puree and add a dollop of cream. If you like you soup thinner like Dh add some chicken stock to taste.
The other we do a lot is the end of the week soup.
One finely diced steak
2 tins of tomato
mixed herb and spices to suit
what ever veggies that are in fridge. (diced)

My partner is a professional athlete and I have a great weight loss soup recipe for when he needs to cut weight-
Sauté onion, garlic, carrots, celery, whatever other non-starchy vegetables together in some olive oil. Add half salt-reduced, half ordinary chicken stock. Bring to the boil, add whole chicken breasts (though thighs are more yummy, they are more fatty), and leave to simmer for about 15mins. Take out chicken and dice or pull apart, add back to pot with some fresh corn removed from the cob, simmer for 5 mins then serve. Delicious, quick, healthy.

Cream of Zuchini - takes about 20 minutes ...
Chop 3 medium zuchini and 1 onion, fry in a little olive oil and butter until browing.
Just cover with water and add 2 veg stock cubes, (salt and pepper if you want) gently boil for 10 minutes.
Puree with a stick blender, add 1/2 cup cream and reheat (don't boil).
That's it! My two year old loves it.
