This is my go-to winter soup recipe and my go-to vegetable soup recipe. It's the product of a slow evolution from this recipe in the March 2009 issue of Canadian Living: Hearty Vegetable Soup, which I've gradually modified to my liking. It's a pretty flexible recipe, actually, built on a foundation of tomato, onion, garlic, cumin, cinnamon, and oregano. Feel free to use the root vegetables and legumes of your choice! Likewise, it can be scaled up or down. I usually make it in my 10-litre soup pot, which the full recipe fills about halfway, but I've also made it in a tiny, 1-litre pot!

It's vegetarian (and indeed, vegan), and forms its own delicious broth as it cooks, so there's no need for pre-made stock or broth. It does, however, require some significant chopping and stirring.

The original recipe suggests serving the soup with sour cream, which would undoubtedly be tasty, but it's equally tasty on its own. It also makes excellent leftovers - its flavor improves once it's been sitting for a while.

This is the curry I made last night (my first attempt at curry and it turned out SO delicious - w00t!) modified from this recipe my dear Katie linked me to. I think I prefer my version. If you have accessibility issues, this is a good recipe to get help with on the prep. My carer did all the peeling and chopping and thus made it possible for me to make this recipe at all.

Accessibility Notes: This is a spoon-eating recipe. You will need to peel and dice potatoes, slice capsicum in small strips, peel and cut ginger into tiny cubes, cut up chicken if yours doesn't come from the store in handy bite-sized strips like mine did, open a tin, stir a full large skillet without slopping over, cook rice, and measure peanut butter out without screaming in frustration (I screamed).

Equipment Needed: A huge deep skillet pan thing or medium huge pot with lid. A wooden spoon for stirring. A ladle for serving. A knife and cutting block and a veg peeler (if you use one) for prep. A tablespoon measurement. A helper is awesome here for the prep.

This is a very nice soup for autumn, with its vibrant orange colour, and if you dial the ginger up like I did in the options below, you have a perfect meal for someone with a horrible, nasty cold who needs all the natural lurgy-fighting essences she can get. With the ginger at the normal level, in my experience, it's also a soup for kids.

Accessibility Notes: You will need to be able to chop veg, stir in a pot, and blend either with an immersion blender or by transferring to a blender and back to the pot.
