With all due respect to booze, our idea of a proper "liquid lunch" is to enjoy a bowl of hearty soup. Whether it's mum's minestrone or a sinus-clearing pho, there's just nothing like some steaming broth and fresh vegetables to warm you up from the inside-out on a blustery autumn day. Few dishes pack so many gorgeous flavours into one spoonful, and we think there's a lot to be said for a dinner that requires just one utensil.
Since making anything from scratch is so much more gratifying than busting out the can opener, we've rounded up five delicious fall soup recipes courtesy of London's top restaurants. Enjoy the season's freshest ingredients, expand your culinary repertoire, and prepare your taste buds for an explosion of flavour that will warm you through and through. Spoons up!
