    There are loads of recipes on here if you do a search (top right hand corner but make sure you check the minimins.com part). My faves are BNS and sweet potato and spicy lentil and carrot - both yummy!!!! I have also made a curried parsnip soup which was delicious!

    Or just use the blue button towards the top right of the thread list to do a search on the SW forum alone

    Just about all soups can be made SW friendly so a non-SW recipe site like bbcgoodfood will also give you loads of inspiration
