Soul-reviving broths, soups and chowders in the blink of an eye.

Chicken, vermicelli and lemongrass soup
You need a soul-warming soup, and you need it pronto. Luckily, these quick recipes deliver big flavour after just 30 minutes of your time in the kitchen. After the long arm of the clock has moved from the 12 to the 6, you could be ladling up yourself a bowlful of pasta e fagioli or a minestrone of sausage, cavolo nero and chickpea, say, or a vegetable-packed silverbeet, pumpkin and farro broth. If it's creamy soups you desire, you could do worse than our fast chowder of bacon, potato and corn, or a classic cauliflower number. Our tips? Seek out a top-shelf chicken or vegetable stock – it makes all the difference.
