LIVING LEKKER NOTES
There's nothing like a slightly thick, pureed soup to warm and fill you on a crisp autumn or cold winter day. The 'creaminess' of our soups comes from caramelizing onions in a bit of olive oil, then pureed to deliver that a thickness some people might mistake for cream. Perfect if you’re trying to maintain or lose weight – keep one of these in the fridge all week for a quick snack or pick-me-up!
At the risk of overstating the obvious, YUM! Some of these are the stews of our childhood, some are from other lands, but all have a modern-day twist based on what we know is good for us!
