Asparagus Almong Soup by Stefan Hogan
Asparagus, coming up in season between March and May, is known for its stimulating properties. Another reason to warm up before the season shifts!

Chorizo Lentil Soup by David Debono
This hearty high-protein, low-carb soup is an idea bowl of goodness if you are following a keto-diet, or in general need a protein boost. For warmer days, the chef says that it goes down well as a cold Gazpacho without the chorizo.
Cauliflower Cashew Soup by Julia Ripard

Asian Mushroom Soup by Julian Ripard
This Asian mushroom soup is a seduction of Eastern flavours. Don’t forget to add the soaking liquid of the shiitake mushroom to enhance the umami of this broth needed to balance out the contrasting flavours. It also adds a meaty richness to the vegetable broth.
