from garden to table: spring soups
Spring is a time of awakening and renewal, when nature is bathed in fresh green colours. It brings an abundance of fresh food as the season of young vegetables and fruits begins. The first salads, asparagus, strawberries and young peas arrive on our plates, enriching our diets with their freshness and vibrant flavours.

The fresh food that spring offers not only brings variety to our meals, but also important vitamins and minerals that boost our health and well-being.

Why are soups good for your health?

Soups are an ideal meal, especially during transitional times of the year such as spring, as they offer a range of health benefits. They are light, nutritious and hydrate the body, while providing the vitamins and minerals the body needs. Vegetable-based soups are rich in antioxidants, which help fight free radicals and reduce the risk of chronic diseases. Soups can also aid digestion and are a great way to incorporate more vegetables into the diet.

Which soups to enjoy this spring?

Mushroom soup

Mushroom soup is a classic that never disappoints. Rich and creamy in texture and full of mushroom flavour, it''s perfect for spring days. Mushrooms are also a good source of protein and fibre.

Carrot soup with ginger

This soup is bright and refreshing with a spicy hint of ginger, which stimulates digestion and strengthens the immune system. Carrots bring sweetness and are an excellent source of vitamin A.

Tomato soup

A classic tomato soup, rich in lycopene, is a great choice for a spring diet. Its light but rich texture and flavour are perfect for the transitional months.

Why are soups a great meal?

Soups are versatile, nutritious and can serve as a stand-alone meal or as a starter to a main course. They are easily digestible and provide a feeling of satiety without excess calories, ideal for maintaining a healthy weight.

Tricks for making cream soup without excess calories

1. Choose a vegetable base: Start with a rich vegetable base that will add flavour and nutrients to the soup without extra fat.

2. Use pureed vegetables for creaminess: Instead of cream, use pureed cooked vegetables such as cauliflower or courgettes, which add creaminess to the soup without extra calories.

3. Limit the use of oil: Use only a few drops of good quality oil or even water to roast vegetables.

4. Spices and herbs: Use a wide variety of spices and herbs such as sweet paprika, marjoram, thyme, basil, herb garden mix and garlic powder, which will add depth of flavour to the soup without extra calories.

Use of spices and herbs

Spices and herbs are key to lifting the flavours of soups. Sweet paprika adds heat and colour, while herbs such as marjoram, thyme and basil bring freshness and aromaticity. BAM Herb Garden Blend and BAM Garlic Powder are versatile additions that enrich soups with flavours reminiscent of a home garden.

Spring is more than just the transition between winter dormancy and summer bloom; it is a season that invites us to rediscover the beauty of nature and the freshness of seasonal food.
