#CookBlogShare 2018 Week 11 - Plus Super Soups and Bread

Hello and welcome to week 11 of the Cook Blog Share linky.

The week when it is my turn to host, is always a week I look forward to. Hosting gives me the perfect excuse to sit back and read your posts. Since I started working full time I have found that I never stop and really do miss having the time to dedicate to reading blogs like I did before. During term time I tend to be more quiet but working in a school means that I have lots of holidays which gives me the ideal time to catch up. In two and a half weeks we all break up for the Easter holidays so we are all well and truly on the count down.

Usually at this time of year I am looking at making more spring time recipes but thanks to the great British weather that we have been having, snow, rain, wind, etc. I am still swaying towards warming, comforting meals. So it is not surprising that this week it was the warming soups that won me over and a necessary side dish to go with them!

Here are my four favourite recipes from week 10 of #CookBlogShare...

It is Jerusalem artichoke season and we have been having them quite a bit, but I always tend to have them boiled or roasted so when I saw this Jerusalem artichoke and celeriac soup with coconut and chilli from Cook Veggielicious it certainly got my attention. Celeriac soup is so creamy and with the addition of the artichokes I bet that this is a bowl of deliciousness!

The following soup from Everyday Healthy Recipes is an all time favourite of mine but Monika's soup has an added extra. This Roasted Pepper, Quinoa and Basil Soup has an enticingly vibrant colour and the addition of quinoa makes this a filling bowl with added goodness!

The third soup that I chose this week is another recipe that features Jerusalem artichoke but combined with a different vegetable. Jo's Kitchen Larder shared this Jerusalem Artichoke and Carrot Soup. Jo has kept the ingredients and flavours simple which has created a soup which I cannot wait to make!

For me, if you have a bowl of soup, you must have some fresh bread to dip. That is where the fourth and final recipe in this round up comes in. This Algerian Semolina Bread from Jess Eats and Travels looks and sounds like the ideal accompaniment to any of these three warming soups.

  2. I know what you mean Kirsty. Really tired of winter now and hoping that by the time we reach Easter break it will sort itself out and surprise use with lovely spring sunshine and warm temperatures. We've had couple of almost spring like days last week here in West Sussex so fingers crossed!

  15. We are still decisively in soup season here in Wisconsin, USA, and I don't see that ending any time soon. So this roundup is very timely! I was drooling over Jo's Jerusalem Artichoke and Carrot Soup and Monika's Roasted Pepper, Quinoa and Basil Soup when I saw them in last week's linky. But these ALL look absolutely delicious. Thanks for hosting!

  16. Delicious round up Kirsty, I've been working on a post this week for soups-for-one, it's definitely been a soupy kind of week!

  17. It has so been soup weather in the last couple of weeks..... Great seasonal round up! Mind you.... bring on the strawberries.... I'm ready for summer! x
