Did you know that Ainsley Harriott has a range of cup soups out in the shops to buy now? I didn’t until last week when I got asked to review some and I was really interested to find out what they taste like. Soup is something I eat every now and then but not something I would say I look forward to having. I guess its because I normally find them bland and lacking in flavour which is why I usually pick something else to eat. I was keen to see how this famous chef had spiced up soup and I was keeping my fingers crossed that flavours were at the front of his soup recipes,because I would love to become a soup fan like my husband. Since starting the gym I have been trying to find something different to eat at lunch time and soup is something I’ve thinking about changing to instead of a sandwich.
I was sent a selection of cup soups from the Ainsley Harriott range,when they arrived I was full of cold and couldn’t wait to try one at lunch time. When I looked at all the different flavours I had a job trying to pick which one I wanted to try first. I loved the look of all the flavours and wanted to try them all. In the end I went for the Italian Style Minestrone and I am pleased to say I was not disappointed. Although I was full of cold and struggling to taste normal foods that I was eating I could actually taste the beautiful flavours in this soup recipe. I was hooked!!
I have now tried all of the flavoured cup soups from Ainsley and I am really pleased that I have tried them,I have been having them daily since they arrived and I seem to be converted to the wonderful world of soup. Its even inspired me to try and make my own. When these have all gone I will definitely stock up the cupboard when I go shopping.
Big Bird has been off school this week with a cold and she wanted to try one of the Ainsley Harriott cup soups,she had the Italian Style Minestrone and she loved it. Bless her she had never seen a cup soup before and questioned why it was not in a bowl. I told her there was a clue in the name and she laughed.
Yesterday I tried the East Indian Mulligatawny cup soup,it smelt beautiful when I tipped the sachet into the boiling water,curry lovers will love this one. Its very hot and spicy,I love a hot curry so this went down really well with me. I am so glad I stumbled across this range Ainsley has got all the recipes down to perfection. There are no artificial colours or preservatives and each sachet makes one cup soup. If you would like to purchase any of the Ainsley Harriott Cup Soups you will be looking to pay around £1.15 for 4 sachets. They are the perfect winter warmer!
