There is something about soup that has both the ability to revitalise and to soothe. They are packed with nutrition and offer variety, deliciousness and comfort as well as being a fantastic aid for weight-loss. Soup's versatility and health benefits are captured in MAGIC SOUP. Whether it's swapping a stale sandwich at lunchtime for a vibrant bowl full of grains and greens, or relaxing at home over a velvety blend of manuka-honeyed parsnip, cooking for a supper party or nursing a cold - there is always an occasion for soup. MAGIC SOUP features over 100 innovative recipes helping you to feel fuller and become healthier. Recipes such as salmon poached in lemongrass tea, lemon chicken and mint with quinoa, and the ultimate 'chicken soup for the soul' will redefine people's expectations and put paid to the myth that soup cannot be hearty a meal in itself. Nicole Pisani and Kate Adams have all the credentials and expertise to create recipes that are both utterly delicious and in line with a balanced way of eating.
This book is a celebration of food that looks as good as it tastes. The yam and coconut soup is the colour of a sunburst, and the nettle soup with flowers looks like it came from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. There are stocks, quick fixes - like roasted cherry tomato soup with salsa and flatbread and a vivid emerald-green watercress soup with crab toast - and bowls of broth from around the world. -- Eithne Farry The Simple Things Soup is just the thing at this time of year: comforting yet light and healthy - and it's cheap and easy to make. Nicole Pisani and Kate Adams have joined forces to provide a collection of knock-out soups. There are broths, chowders and dhals; hot and cold soups; vegetarian, meaty and fishy bowls. Truly a soup for every season. BBC Good Food magazine
