Soup and Stew Recipes!
If you ask me to define comfort food then I would probably point to any recipe on this page, as far as I am concerned a bowl of soup or stew is food to warm the heart… And do not think that these dishes are just for winter, there are a whole host of lighter broth based soups that are perfect for a summers day, just as comforting just a little lighter!
Lets kick of October (how the hell did that happen) with a proper autumnal soup and more specifically a very British Broccoli and Stilton Soup. Regular readers will know that I have more than a slight fondness for soup!
The Italians just seem to own frugal, hearty, magical peasant food and this Ribollita is just another example of that, whether it is risotto or pasta, great Italian food is often cheap as chips to make and packs such an incredible punch of flavour.
This asparagus soup recipe really does call for something much more sedate and relaxed, it is warm and light and soothing and just well, very 'zen'. In fact so zen that it comes with a Japanese cherry blossom influence too.
