Spring is in the air and the British larder door is now opening and coming out are a whole number of lovely British vegetables and herbs. The weather is very changeable so most soups do need to have a little punch to them for the chillier days, here you will find ones that easily bridge the gap from cold to heat-wave (typical for the UK).
When making a soup, always consider making a big batch and freezing. You will be so glad you did when you want a quick lunch or supper dish. Soups are also perfect for the lunch pack-up and the perfect partner for a picnic (take it warm in a flask to take off the chill if the day is a little cool).
