These 10 best winter Scottish soup recipes are sure to bring a warm glow on any cold day. And of course, they can be enjoyed all year round too!
Hey Folks, I hope you enjoyed my last recipe, the chicken and leek soup or as we know it in Scotland, cock-a-leekie soup!
Living in a country with pretty unpredictable weather it's challenging to know what to put on the menu on a daily basis.
This is where my Scottish soup recipes come in because they're the ultimate comfort food and you can enjoy them all year round for lunch or as a main meal.
There's nearly 70 soup recipes on Neil's Healthy Meals for you to choose from, many not just Scottish but from all over the world.
So today I thought I'd do a compilation of our most popular Scottish soup recipes.
Some of these soup recipes you might not even consider as Scottish!
However if they were ones that I grew up on in Scotland, then I consider them to be Scottish as they're family recipes!
And to make them even better why not serve with some large chunks of homemade crusty bread?

Thanks for taking time to do this delicious collection of comforting and delicious soups. I am a soup person and I eat soup all year long though now it's really the best time to enjoy them.

What a great collection, Neil! It's getting chilly, so soups are definitely on the menu. And with the holiday season approaching, it'll be nice to balance it out with some healthy options. That means I can eat an extra dessert, right? 🙂
Thanks David! Any extra dessert? Absolutely, that's what the healthy balance is all about! 😎
I like the Leak and Potato and the Barley VBeggie soups best.
You're welcome Charlie, thanks for your favourites choices!

love pearl barley - brings back the memories as mum used to make it every sunday. and i love lentils - memories of my hippie days. But a huge NO! to kale :=)
I think that pearl barley has lost it's popularity but in a soup, it does taste amazing doesn't it Sherry! Thanks for the comment!
