Heres two recipes i recently tried and liked:
ingredients: oilive oil or butter, 1-2 cloves garlic, 2-3 shallots or one large yellow onion, 100g or more of fresh spinach (i also added kale and half a leak), 1 potato, 250-300ml stock, nutmeg, salt pepper, creme fraiche or sour creme.
method: chop onion, garlic and potato roughly. Fry garlic, onion til it softens a bit, add spinach till it wilts and the diced potato and some nutmeg, salt and black pepper. Desolve stock cube into 250-300ml of hot water and pour in, bring to boil and simmer until potatoes soften (about 15 mins or so). Let it cool a bit and then liquidise. Put back in pan, heat gently and check seasoning. When hot pout into bowls and add a swirl of creme fraiche.
ingredients: 3-6 carrots (i only used 3 because i only had 3 and i found it fine, but recommend at least 4 probably), 1 large yellow onion, 2" peice ginger, 2-3 cloves garlic, half tsp to 1 tsp corriander pwd, dash of paprika, salt and black pepper, half to 1 whole stock cube.
methos: saute onion, carrot, garlic, ginger will softened, add corriander, paprika, salt pepper. Pour in water to cover 2 " over veg and sprinkle the stock cube. bring to boil and simmer for about 15 mins or till carrots are cooked. Let cool and liquidise. Return to pan and check seasoning.
curry variation: no corriander or stock cube. add 1 tbsp tomato paste and 3 tbsp Thai red curry paste.

Yeah. I've made black bean soup. It's supposed to be nutritious. Just pick any black bean soup recipe and start experimenting.
Other soups you can also make are
and of course Asian soups like Egg drop, sweet and sour ..etc

I don't really remember how I made the black bean soup. But rest assure there weren't any coconut milk. I don't put coconut milk in my soup - ever. But you can make great gravies with coconut milk.
Egg drop soup is not easy to make. I hardly make it at home.

I didnt have the celery or broadbeans but added spinach and added an extra half an onion. I also used the garam masala instead of cumin. Didnt have the tinned tomatoes so fried about 6/7 fresh ones with 2 peices of chopped garlic and a teaspoon or so of tomato paste and blended and added that. It was really delicious!! Do try it!

1 finely chopped onion
peice finely grated ginger
2 grated carrots
tsp cumin seeds
cup or so of red lentils
It was ok, but seemed to be a bit lacking some how, so any tips on how to improve it would be welcomed.

recipe says serves 4 (which means it serves 2).
1 tbsp chopped garlic
a handful of basil leaves
sea salt and white pepper (i used black though)
1kg courgettes (about 3)
7050 ml/1 and a quarter pints of chicken stock ( i used vegetable stock)
60ml/2 fl single cream (i didnt add any dairy but would have probably used yogurt)
handful flatleaf parsley (i didnt bother with this)
50g/2oz grated parmesan (i didnt bother with this either as only really like it on pasta)
Heat up some olive oil and add chopped courgettes (discs) and finely chopped garlic and pinch of salt, after a mine or two add roughly chopped basil and cook slowly until softened and a little browned.
add pepper to taste and the stock and simmer (uncovered) for 8 or so mins. Remove from heat and let cool a bit.
Blend half the mixture in a food processor and return the mixture to heat.
Stir in cream, parsley and parmesan if desired.
I found it to be comforting and refreshing at same time.

Ive been enjoying this Basil and tomatoe soup the last couple of days. He (Jamie Oliver) suggests leaving the green bits from the vine on the tomatoes to add extra taste. It is indeed very tastey, but even after blending thoroughly, the stalk left little woody bits in the soup, so i suggest straining it through a seive after blending.
2 sticks celery
2 medium onions
2 cloves garlic
2 organic chicken or vegetable stock cubes
400 g tinned plum tomatoes
3 large ripe tomatoes
1 small bunch fresh basil
freshly ground black pepper
To make your soup:
Peel and roughly slice the carrots. Slice the celery. Peel and roughly chop the onions. Peel and slice the garlic. Put a large pan on a medium heat and add a couple of lugs of olive oil. Add all your chopped and sliced ingredients and mix together with a wooden spoon.
Cook for around 10 to 15 minutes with the lid askew, until the carrots have softened but are still holding their shape, and the onion is lightly golden.
Put the stock cubes into a jug or pan and pour in 1.5 litres of boiling water from the kettle. Stir until the stock cubes are dissolved, then add to the pan your tinned and fresh whole tomatoes, including the green stalks that may still be attached to some of them (these give an amazing flavour – trust me!) Give it a good stir and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes with the lid on. Meanwhile, pick your basil leaves.
To serve your soup:
Remove the pan from the heat. Season with salt and pepper and add the basil leaves. Using a hand blender or liquidizer, pulse the soup until smooth. Season again before dividing between your serving bowls.
