Googie’s Kitchen presents Sweet and Slightly Spicy Orange Vegetable Soup

Gifts from Grandpa is my NEW recipe book – out NOW and available to buy on Amazon for only £19.99. Plus £1 from the sale of each book will go to Crisis the homeless charity.

Soup is a great winter warmer and at this time of year it’s greatly received by my little family. When the weather outside is cold, there’s nothing quite like coming home to a nice warm bowl of soup. For me, soup makes me feel warm and well. This soup recipe is simple but full of ingredients that are great for the bodys well being. It’s also very flavoursome and it will keep everyone warm in winter. As it’s such a great dish I thought I would show you how to cook it on my YouTube channel Googie’s Kitchen. Plus the blog post is below too.

Sweet and Slightly Spicy Roasted Orange Veg Soup

Sweet and Slightly Spicy Roasted Butternut Squash and Carrot Soup is a delicious way to enjoy spices and vegetables. It’s a great winter warm that could can be made in batches and frozen for another occasion. My husband and son ate these with a cheesy flatbread. I had mine with a chickpea flour wrap and these recipes will be coming soon. However you decide to eat this meal, as always, please enjoy.

Thank you. Xxx
