“Autumn is the harvest season for those who grow their own fruit and vegetables,” says Gill from our National School Breakfast Programme. “It’s the time for pumpkins, squash, carrots, parsnips, spinach, beans, leeks, onions, broccoli, cauliflower, sprouts and cabbages. And all these are great vegetables to put in soups! If you don’t grow your own, there are plenty of offers to be had at markets and supermarkets across the country. If you have never made soup before, then why not follow one of our easy recipes below, and you can’t go wrong. Once you have made a few, you can start experimenting by making your own soup combinations. Soup is a great way to use up some of those tins that have been lurking in your store cupboard!”


We have invited families to share their favourite soup recipes. Here are just a few of the amazing entries:
