Grilling enthusiasts and anyone who owns a wood fired oven will know the simple delights that are gained from cooking outdoors from scratch and feeding hungry guests with hearty goodness. Some may not feel like being outside when it is cold, but there is something very comforting about grilling and serving up warming bowls of pure joy. We love a soup that has an extra dimension of smoke flavour that only comes from a wood fired oven, and just had to share some of our favourite recipes!
Grilled Vegetable Soup
Featuring asparagus, pepper, and corn, this soup packs a colourful punch! Featuring plenty of variety and a lot of nutrients, this thick and flavoursome soup is bound to pep you up like that cup of coffee wishes it could!
This cold-serve Spanish soup may not be what most people dream of in winter, but it certainly makes a nice change from the standard winter thoroughfare. Grilling and smoking the vegetables beforehand makes the flavour far richer than usual, and gives it the extra character it needs for a warming January dish.
Smoked Chicken and Sausage Gumbo
Moving along from Spanish dishes to a hearty gumbo from the Southern states of the US! Chunky, flavourful, and warming, this soup is perfect for taking the chill out of your bones and filling up your guests for any long nights ahead.
Cheesy Roasted Vegetable Soup
The only thing that can beat gumbo is a comforting cheesy soup! Brimming with charred vegetables, the dish is not only delicious and wholesome, but nutritious too! Its cheery orange colour is also a welcome respite to the cold grey of January, and this is certain to bring a smile to anyone’s face.
