Winters-the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire; it’s the time for home :) I get warmth in my mind and heart when I hear the word ‘soup’ in winters. Soup understands you so well on wintery cold day, it soothes you, eases you and refreshes you in and out. Soup is a lot like a family. Each ingredient enhances the others; each batch has its own characteristics; and it needs time to simmer to reach full flavour.
Roasted soups in winters-my first love! The fact is, when you roast any fruit or vegetable, it releases its own juice and fragrant due to which the profile value of it intensifies. After roasting you are left with strong smoked burnt flavour which is so sharp and intelligent that you will be hooked forever.If you want to enjoy winters and find comfort in food, here are Roasted Winter Soups Recipes that you must try this year.
Roasted Bell Pepper Basil Soup: Sweet and aromatic will be the best words to describe this soup. Smoked capsicum lends sweetness whereas Italian herbs like basil and oregano balances the whole story.
Roasted Tomato Garlic Soup: It is a punch of flavours and a great makeover to old tomato soup. It uses black pepper and one secret healthy ingredient, result- Rich and velvety taste. Indeed a complete mood up lifter!
Roasted Butternut Squash Soup: Olive oil, Indian garam massala and creamy yogurt all lends this soup a perfect wintery touch of smoked flesh and warmth. Very strong flavours and a texture to die for.
Roasted Chilli Tomato Soup: Peppery, fiery and hot-oh yes if you love spicy hot soup, this soup will now be your new favourite. The tang of tomatoes and charred chillies balances the essence of the soup brilliantly; with every sip the zest of smoked chilli is exceptionally reassuring.
.....Cold night, large sweater, bowl of soup, good book and soft socks- enjoy winters and stay warm everyone :)
