Yet again, it has taken me ages to get the #SuperSoup linky live but here it is finally! Thank you to everyone who took part. Your soups were amazing as always and they were:

Thank you again for taking part and I hope to see you again this time!
The theme for December/January’s #SuperSoup is Christmas/Frugal. The reason why I have chosen this theme is that everyone is saving money for Christmas at the moment so taking soup to work for lunch instead of buying it, could help you save a few pennies. Also, Christmas is the time for leftovers and putting some of them in a soup is an ideal thing to do.
For my entry into #SuperSoup, I have made a recipe from Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s new cookbook, River Cottage: Love Your Leftovers: Recipes For The Resourceful Cook (you can see my video review of it here) where Hugh suggests that potato peels make an excellent soup. I was a little sceptical at first but decided to give it a go as I throw away potato peels regularly and always thought that they would be useful for something, other than the compost heap (if you have one.) The recipe is online here. I was amazed when I tried it. It tasted like mushrooms and I could not believe how creamy it was, despite only having milk and stock as the liquid. I added it some carrot peelings too and it was perfect with lots of seasoning and fresh parsley added in at the end. I am looking forward to making this again over the festive period with all my Christmas dinner peelings.
I am keeping this linky open for nearly all of January so you have plenty of time to link up any posts. New or old posts are welcome.
I am linking my soup up to #CreditCrunchMunch with Camilla and Helen, hosted by Elizabeth this month and #ExtraVeg with Michelle and Helen. I am also linking the soup up to #FestiveFoodFriday with Sarah and Kerry as it is the perfect way to use up your festive leftovers
