I had only really eaten tomato soup in London if I was ill because it is easy to eat and very warming. But since being here I have eaten so many types of soups both as a first course of obiad (dinner) or with the main meal as a drink. I enjoy them now, especially on winter nights. It is probable that the association of Poland and soup originated for this reason also with long, cold winters being the norm.
Now I always have some sort of soup around because
- They are a handy way to use up anything you would otherwise throw out
- They are extremely easy to make
- They cook themselves
- They last a long time
- They can be quickly reheated
- There is a huge variety
I have selected the most important (and tasty) soups that I have tried over here and I strongly suggest you try these recipes for yourself at any time of the year.
