soup - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
The soup was the colour of the autumnal vegetable garden outside - deepest green. In it was the kale and broccoli.

She cooked to the seasons and to the pantry - always generous servings, as if the diners had just walked in from a hard day working on the land. Oliver inhaled the air, stomach rumbling as he watched the soup ladled into dark wooden bowls, his mind already dunking in a hunk of fresh bread.
