A warming winter vegetable soup for when Jack Frost visited

Lovely ice crystals - Hell's Ditch

Getting colder

Winter’s drawing ever closer: we had the first hard frost of the year a few days ago, which was the perfect occasion to test a new vegetable soup recipe I’d thought about.

Good morning Mr Frost!

Someone else out inspecting the frosty day

In the past I made a Dhal, a lentil based thick curry stew to accompany curries.

And 10 minutes later, these icy shards had completely disappeared...

But I had never used them in soups, so here’s quick and easy vegetable offering with a deep aromatic spice. You can use anything in your spice rack: try different combinations and let us know what works for you.

  1. As you are getting colder, we are getting warmer (slowly but surely). I enjoy a good hearty vegetable soup no matter the season and yours looks fantastic.

  2. Your soup looks very warm and inviting, the frost not so much. I am so glad I am not living in Michigan right now. It was 50 degrees F in hong Kong this week and I feel cold. LOL Take Care

    The photos are beautiful! I love the ingredients in the soup; it makes a thick hearty soup for these chilly winter days. We had our hard frost about a month ago, but our temperatures are jumping up and down like a seesaw!

  8. I can’t decide which photo is prettier…the first one of the rather floral looking frost, or the last one of that gorgeously colored soup! i want some of that soup!

  9. Love the frost photos!
