The temperatures have dropped and there's no better comfort food than soup.

Soup is an emotive dish because it's more than just chopping up and boiling veggies, there's always a food memory to accompany it.

In Cape Town it's often said that before the first drops of rain hit the ground the soup pots are already on the stove. On Instagram there's always food inspiration and there is no lack of soup to drool over right now as everyone starts cooking heartier meals.

#SoupTime is the go-to hashtag so that you can get some insight into the global menu's of soup being served.

Just a reminder that the winter months of June, July and August here in SA brings with it the following veggies that are in season: 
  • Asparagus
  • Beetroot
  • Broad beans
  • Broccoli 
  • Kale spinach
  • Pumpkin

Get the blender out and use Instagram as a guide to flex your soup muscles and discover a few new recipes this winter.
