We’re delighted to offer you ‘The Soup Series’ – an aptly named series of 6x online cooking classes, each of which focuses on a distinct soup recipe that you can adjust and adapt according to the seasons and the ingredients available to you. Good, hearty soups with a simple base of vegetable stock is an essential cornerstone in a wholefood cook’s repertoire. They are simple and easy to make, they create very little washing up… and they are a complete meal in one bowl, bringing together vegetables, grains, proteins and a mineral-rich stock for a truly nourishing and nutritious dish. Most of the ingredients we will use in this series are easily available in organic green grocers and wholefood health shops. Any specialist ingredients we recommend such as kombu and shiitake mushrooms are also available in our retail shop, Cascades Culinary. Note: You can book classes as drop-ins, or if you are interested in participating in the whole series of 6 classes we offer a £35 discount (making it £265 for the whole series). Please contact us at cooking@concordinstitute.com for more details.

Butter Bean and Beetroot Soup (15th Feb)

Combining the sweet flavours of beetroot and the smooth texture of butter beans creates this delicious, velvety and luscious soup. Using simple pantry ingredients, some herbs and a base of vegetable stock, you will create a nourishing and satisfying soup in your very own kitchen. You will also learn how to adapt the recipe to use different kinds of root vegetables, beans and herbs.

Green (or Yellow) Split Pea Soup (19th Feb)

Split peas are a brilliant addition to your home’s wholefood pantry. They are rich in protein and fibre and contain a plethora of essential vitamins and minerals. They are also affordable, easy to cook, and keep for a long time when stored properly.In this online cooking class, you will learn to make a simple ‘potage’ soup with little more than some simple seasonal vegetables and a good hearty stock.

Butternut Squash and Miso Soup (7th March)

With this simple recipe, you will turn the humble and versatile butternut squash into a nutrition-packed bowl of soup that’s both warming and uplifting. The simple earthsweet flavour of the squash pairs beautifully with the depth and complexity of miso. In this class, you will learn about this very special fermented food, and how to incorporate it into a variety of dishes.

Simple Vegetable Soup (14th March)

This method and style of soup is the most versatile. Simply, we will combine whatever vegetables are available to us in the market – whatever the season. Here, we will bring together a delightful medley of cabbage greens, root vegetables and plenty of aromatics to create a soup that is cleansing, healthy and simply bursting with flavour with every spoonful.

Bean and Barley Broth (21st March)

This is a classic soup that brings together the key elements of a balanced meal in one pot. Beans and pearl barley is a protein and fibre-rich combination that brings a sweet earthy flavour to this soup. The mineral-rich tamari broth complements this flavour with a deep savoury taste, making a moreish, filling and deeply satisfying bowl.

Vegetarian ‘Goulash’ Soup (28th March)

This soup can be made with just about any combination of vegetables making it very adaptable throughout the seasons. The distinctive taste of this dish is that of smoked paprika, which gives complex and layered flavours of sweetness, smokiness, bitterness and a very mild heat. This soup warms the body from the inside out, perfect for the all too common rainy grey days.
