‘Souper November’ 2019

This month, as it turns wintery, Souper November returns for its second year. We’ll be asking the question: what’s your favourite winter-warming soup? Do you know the recipe? Last year we visited 14 Hull cafes doing home-made soup. Can you recommend a cafe near you?

Madame Zucchini, as some of you may know, is the UK’s no.1 veg-based cabaret act. She shot to fame after her 2016 appearance on Britain’s Got Talent, and now entertains crowds at festivals and fairs all over the country. What you might not know is that Mme Z. spent her student days in Hull. She returned to visit us at the Freedom Festival in 2018 and starred in our Veg Cities launch photo. Being a veg connoisseur, you won’t be surprised to hear her favourite soup is spicy vegetable medley – with plenty of potato! wp.me/P9BG34-la On TV https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l9LeunnA4wc Recipes https://www.yummly.co.uk/recipes/healthy-spicy-vegetable-soup #soupernovember #hullvegcity #vegcities #hull #soup #vegetables #vegan #entertainers #cabaret #britainsgottalent @madamezucchini #simoncowell @bgt

You'll never guess where we've 'bean' – Yes, to the welcoming and inclusive 'Bean & Nothingness' Cafe on Whitefriargate – who started as a coffee shop but have started adding light dishes to the menu, including homemade soups. Much of their veg ingredients come from Spring Bank and local markets. B&N do lighter soups in the summer, many influenced by Rich's many years living out in East Asia. For example the carrot and coriander soup is a Thai fusion. During the winter soups are slightly heavier and more often than not contain beans!  More> https://wp.me/p9BG34-lI #soupernovember #hullvegcity #vegcities #hull #whitefriargate #coffeeshop #southkorea #thai #soup #vegetables #vegan #fusion #communitycafe #creativecafe #musicvenue @bean_nothingness @rccoffeeuk @weirdretrohull

Do you have a favourite veg-based soup? What is it? Let us know in the comments. Frith Farm know a thing or two about vegetables. They've been running a CSA (community-supported) veg box scheme from their 5-acre site near Beverley for several years. Their own favourite soup is a delicious roasted squash & carrot, which is especially seasonal at the moment – and just what you need after a hard day out on the field in November! https://www.goodtoknow.co.uk/recipes/carrot-and-butternut-squash-soup Early-bird orders for their 2020 veg boxes are being taken now at www.frithfarming.com #hullvegcity #vegcities #hullthy #vegetablesoup #soupernovember #soup #vegbox #can #communitysupportedagriculture #butternutsquash @frithfarming

Marlas

Marlas is a beautiful little cafe & sandwich shop in Paragon Arcade doing interesting and eclectic brunch dishes, often soups: tomato & roast pepper, sweet potato and roast carrot, and our new favourite celeriac. Ingredients are local & free range, vegetables from @chakandsues. Many vegan options. Highly recommended!

Cooplands Secret Garden Café

Cooplands Secret Garden Café do seasonal soups throughout the year as part of their traditional but affordable menu. Depending on time of year, soups include leek & potato, tomato & basil, mushroom, carrot & coriander and vegetable. Currently they’re promoting their winter soups, carrot & swede and another one with parsnip. Veg supplied by @dennisbutlerltd. They’re family owned with 12 cafés from Middlesbrough to Louth, including 2 in Hull. Soups are freshly made, veg-based and without thickeners, so are gluten free. Secret Garden has cheerful staff and dozens of tables and on Jameson Street, it’s a worthy stop during seasonal shopping trips.

A visit to the Ferens Art Gallery can be a feast, not only for the eyes, but the taste buds as well! The Venue Hull Cafe at the gallery do great food, including lovely soups, and as part of Souper November we tried their soup-of-the-day, which was butternut squash & sweet potato. The staff are friendly & polite, so why not pop into the cafe to warm up before taking in the beautiful artwork on show this season.

After the successful launch of our 12-month ‘Hull Veg City’ campaign with ‘Halloween’ soup in Hull city centre, we go straight into ‘Souper November’ where we’ll be promoting local eateries serving delicious warming veg-based soups this November!

Next for #soupernovember: The Pavilion Café in East Park, who always have two or three soups to choose from. They not only do the usual favourites such as cream-of-mushroom and minestrone (gluten free), but also more exotic ones such as Moroccan lentil & chickpea, and blue Stilton, broccoli & cauliflower! They use fresh herbs and source their vegetables from Alpine Fine Foods of Hull. They are proud to be an inclusive café: catering for vegans, gluten-free diets and fourteen different food allergies. Dog walkers should also know that they are dog friendly. This December they’ll be serving turkey soup and there’ll be plenty of veg in it too! Well worth a visit. @The Pavilion Cafe #hullvegcity #vegcities #eastparkhull #easthull
