National Soup Month
January is National Soup Month. Nothing drives away those chilly winter blues like a hot bowl of your favorite soup.
It’s the perfect lunchtime or evening meal treat and is great for making a big pot and freezing for a quick fix meal when you can’t be bothered to cook. We’ve included a mix of slow cooker and stove top soups, so versatile and packed full of nutrients. You can freestyle with your ingredients, throw in your leftovers – souptastic! Don’t forget we also sell a soup box with two recipes for inspiration.
