Making soup is quick and easy and even if you make your own stock (as I usually do) the addition of a stock cube lifts the final soup up a flavour level. OXO (most people in the UK have a packet of OXO beef stock cubes in the cupboard) have released their new 'wet' stock cube, handy little pots of stock and herbs to add that missing 'beat' to your soup.
A recent idea that has caught on from the States (some of my best friends are American!!) is 'disco soup' a rather strange sounding activity. In reality it means just to put on some of your favourite music (disco works really well) and move to the beat whilst you make some soup, using of course the new OXO stock pots. Just loose yourself and get cooking really, you can always make more than you need for that meal and freeze homemade soup for up to 3 months.
At a recent 'disco soup' event sponsored by OXO and held at Cactus Kitchens in South London any of the soup we made that we didn't finish or take home along with fresh bread was going to a local homeless shelter that offers a soup kitchen on Fridays.
There is only one prize - Entries from the UK only will be entered into the prize draw.
I was a guest of OXO and was not required to write a positive review of the event. As usual all opinions and photos are my own.
