Winter Warmer Soup


Is there anything in the world more homely and comforting than a bowl of hot soup?


Being a student in Newcastle is hard in winter, it’s absolutely arctic in the house.

A big bowl of hot, steaming soup is perfect to warm you right up


And not only that, this soup is absolutely jampacked with goodness – it’s full of vegetables and beans with not a baddie in sight!


Served up with hot, buttery toast, you can’t go wrong!



2 sweet potatoes
1 red pepper
1 yellow pepper
4 carrots
2 onions
1 garlic bulb
2 cans chopped tomatoes
1 can mixed beans (or kidney beans/butter beans/whatever you fancy)
1 stock cube (chicken/vegetable)
tsp paprika
olive oil
salt & pepper
tsp mustard
tsp Worcester sauce
tsp brown sugar


1. Roughly chop up your veg, put it in a large roasting tin and drizzle with olive oil and paprika. Roast for 30-45 mins on 200°c

2. Put the chopped tomatoes and beans into a large saucepan/casserole dish and warm on a medium heat

3. Add the stock, salt & pepper, mustard, Worcester sauce and brown sugar and stir till combined

4. Add the roasted veg, and stir.

5. If you like your soup chunky you can serve it now, if not you can blitz it in a blender till it’s your desired consistency

6. Serve in a big bowl with hot buttery toast

This recipe makes quite a lot so make sure you’ve got a container or two and whack it in the freezer – soup for days!
