Three Easy Winter Soup Ideas with Cully & Sully

Easy Winter Soup Ideas: Tomato and Basil with Creole Seasoning, Coriander and Croutons

For the past week since coming home from Mexico, I’ve been on a bit of a tight budget. All those margaritas don’t leave much money in a girl’s bank account. Luckily, the cold weather (which I’m still re-adjusting to) means soups make the ideal, inexpensive lunch. So if you’re looking for some easy winter soup ideas that take very little effort, I’m your gal.

Fresh soups are always best – and I’ve been tucking into Cully & Sully’s offerings of late. At £1.50 each in Tesco, they definitely fit the ‘budget’ side of things, while still being a hell of a lot nicer than basic range tinned stuff. And if you’re feeling a bit fancy, it’s super simple to use some basic extra ingredients to pimp them up for something a lil’ more special….

Tomato & Basil with Creole Seasoning, Coriander and Croutons

Cully & Sully’s Tomato & Basil offering is definitely well up there with some of the best shop-bought tomato soups I’ve had. Rich and fresh-tasting, even on it’s own with some bread, it makes a perfect quick lunch if you’re in a rush.

If you want to spice it up a bit (literally), I sprinkled on some of my beloved New Orleans-bought Creole Seasoning, and a pinch of coriander. You could use fresh, but from a jar is just as good. A few croutons on top and you’re done!

Cheeseboard not essential, but 100% recommended. Because when do I ever NOT recommend cheese?!

Pea & Minty with Feta and Bacon

I looove pea soup. And because it’s green, I feel like I’m getting ALL the healthiness into my body. Cully & Sully’s Pea & Minty soup is nice and thick, warming and totally satisfying. For a weekend lunch, I crumbled some feta on top (see, I love cheese), and fried off some little bits of bacon.

A twist on the traditional idea of pea and ham soup, it added a whole new dimension to the soup.

Smoked Haddock & Salmon with Asparagus

Fish-based soups aren’t something I’d usually consider – but Cully & Sully’s Smoked Haddock & Salmon is a flavoursome feast. I’m a big fan of salmon with asparagus, so I popped a couple of flash-fried asparagus tips on top – and kept the rest as a little snack to go alongside it.

This one goes really well with some thickly sliced, crusty bread, by the way. Really filling, it feels like you’re having a sizeable meal from just one pot of soup. Perfect!
