1. A basic cauliflower soup
There’s no denying the simple comforts of a well-made cauliflower soup and this version from Karen Dudley ticks all the boxes. If you’re feeling a little indulgent, serve it with a generous grating of Parmesan or good cheddar over the top.

2. The ultimate chicken soup
While there’s nothing wrong with a clear chicken soup, the addition of pasta rice and chicken meatballs in this recipe moves this into an entirely more hearty category.

3. Tomato soup
This recipe comes with potato bread and roasted raclette, for good measure. We won’t judge you for not making your own potato bread, but don’t let that put you off this recipe. This tomato soup is the exact warming dinner we all crave when the temperature drops, but it’s also actually pretty hands-off as it mostly cooks in the oven.

4. Bone marrow soup (and dombolo!)
This rib-sticking bone marrow soup might seem like a labour of love, but it’s wonderfully affordable for such a hearty meal and only takes about 45 minutes to cook. And, while it’s cooking, you can use the time to throw together some dombolo – they’re easier than they look and are well worth the extra effort.

5. Butternut soup
Whether you’re making your own butternut soup from scratch, or using a perfectly-acceptable shop-bought variety, these garnishes will take it to a whole new level. We’re talking chorizo, chickpeas and feta, too!
