Oh I LOVE soup! Mine are all vegan recipes, but I can write a couple of easy ones here for you.

This is the one I made yesterday:
Stuff Left Over In My Fridge Soup
Ingredients.
A heap of celery (I think I used an entire half a celery, or at least six to eight stalks) - cut into small pieces
One leek - thoroughly washed and sliced
Quarter of a cabbage - washed and sliced
One onion - diced
Two potatoes - cut into 1cm cubes
1 Easy-stock cube and about a litre of water
or
About a litre of stock

Instructions.
Put a small amount of stock, or a small amount of water and a stock cube (about 1/4 of a cup) into a big pot. Bring it to a simmer. Add the onion, leek and celery. Simmer until they are all soft. Will probably take between 5 and 10 minutes. Add the potatoes and cabbage and enough stock to give it a soupy consistency. Boil until the potatoes and cabbage are soft. Then chuck it all in a blender. Season to taste.

Vegetable Lentil Soup
Ingredients.
1 carrot (diced)
1 stick of celery (diced)
1/2 an onion (diced)
1 cup of red lentils
1 tin of diced tomatoes
1/2 a stock cube
About 500ml of water

Instructions.
Saute the diced onion, carrot and celery in a little bit of stock or water (about 1/4 cup). Add the tin of tomatoes, the cup of red lentils and the rest of the stock (or the rest of the water and the stock cube). Cook for about 20 minutes until the lentils and carrots are soft. Add more water as you're cooking if needed, if it's too watery cook it for a bit longer to evaporate the excess water.

French onion soup.
Ingredients
Lots of brown onions, sliced. (Between four and eight depending on the size of the onions)
Stock (or about 1L of water plus a stock cube).
Optional to serve: Slice of a baguette and cheese

Instructions.
Saute the sliced onions in a bit of water or stock until they are soft (the best way is to make sure the heat is low and put the lid on so that the steam helps cook the onions). Make sure they get caramelised so they're nice and brown, not just clear. Add the rest of the stock (or water and stock cube). Cook for another ten to twenty minutes. Serve as is or pour into oven-safe bowls, top with a slice of bread from a baguette and grate cheese on top. Then stick under the grill for a minute or so for the cheese to melt. (You can turn this into English Onion soup by using spring onions and a leek as well as normal brown onions in the recipe.)

Corn Chowder
Ingredients
1 tin of corn kernels
1 tin of creamed corn
1 potato (diced)
1/2 stock cube
Water
1/2 onion (diced)
2 spring onions (sliced)

Instructions
Saute the onion in a little stock or water. When it's soft add the corn kernels, the creamed corn, the diced potatoe and enough water (or stock) to make it a nice thick soup consistency. Simmer for about twenty minutes or until the potato is soft. Add the sliced spring onions to garnish.

Basically the thing to remember is sauted a diced onion, add whatever veggies you have handy, add about a litre of stock, then if need be chuck it in a blender. The best thing about soup is that you can use up all your old veggies that are too wilted for any other purpose rather than just chucking them out!

Its really yummo. And to make it lower fat and better for you, make it with lean chicken or pork mince.

i love easy soups!

my fave is pumpkin and its the easiest thing ever

1kg butternut pumpkin peeled and cut into chunks
2 med carrots in chunks too
1/2 a medium cauliflower, broken up roughly
1litre of salt reduced chicken stock

stick all the vegies into a big pot and put enough stock in to cover all the vegies
bring to the boil then let it simmer for about half an hour
add salt and pepper to taste
when its all cooked mash it with a potato masher and then blend it till its silky smooth :)

delish!

(if you want it a bit creamier u can add light cream or light evaporated milk at the very end, but i find it smooth and creamy enough without it)
