Sustaining, nutritious, quick, easy and cheap to make, it's no surprise that soups are so popular. You'll find every type of pottage on the site, from classic watercress and gazpacho to roasted tomato and chilled versions too.
Ready-cooked chestnuts allow you to make this quck, easy, low-fat soup in no time at all and you'll be well rewarded: the chestnuts add richness and a sweet flavour for a perfect winter soup.
A spicy low-fat soup that has a lovely kick of Tabasco and balsamic to complement the tomatoes. You can even add a shot of vodka if you've a mind to!
Using the best of winter's root vegetables, this hearty soup is packed with nutritional goodness and will make a good lunch or supper for one.
Vegetarians and meat-eaters alike will love this really thick soup crammed with beans, rice and a host of wintry veg. All you need is some good bread and cheese to go with it…
Split peas and bacon make this a hearty, appetising and filling soup for a winter's day. Incidentally it's so-named after the 'peasouper' fogs that embroiled London in earlier times.
Make the most of asparagus while it's here - you can even make it into soup, to be served warm or chilled depending on the weather!
It may sound unusual, but you really must try this cooling, summery almond soup - a Spanish classic and just the thing for lunch on a balmy day.
Unlike the classic gazpacho, this version includes the lovely aniseed flavours of fennel for a really Mediterranean touch. We know you'll love it and, if the weather is less than summery, it can also be served warm.
A bag of mixed salad leaves inspired Delia to create this lovely smooth soup that is cheap and nutritious. A good one for spring, when watercress and new potatoes are at their peak.
Shelled peas enjoy a brief season in the summer and if you've run out of other ways to use them, try this wonderful summery soup with lettuce, which can be served hot or cold, depending on the weather.
