Dare to Tupperware

Ready, steady…SOUP!

As Ludwig van Beethoven famously said, “Only the pure in heart can make a good soup.” And we know that you, our lovely readers, are as pure as they come! No sweetie wrappers and biscuit tins stashed away in your tack rooms, oh no, purer than Snow White herself you lot. Hmmmm. 

Anyway, winter is a-coming and we’ve curated a wonderful series of recipes to help you prepare scrumptious, healthy and quick meals so that after a long day, you can sit back, watch Love Island re-runs and singalong to Chris & Kem’s new single. OK – stop now – we are way off track…

We’re kicking off with some fantastically simple soup recipes that take minutes to make and can be batched up for future meals. First up is eventing mum & freelance cook Carola Williams’s delicious recipe for Beetroot Soup, full of vitamins and minerals and packed with powerful antioxidants.

750g cooked beetroot

2 stock cubes ( chicken or vegetable)
