As a nutrition and weight loss coach, I am a big advocate of souping, and winter time is perfect for home made, thick, nutritious soups, packed with all the fibre that juicing removes.
I regularly collect all the vegetables I can lay my hands on at home and wizz up a fabulous light supper or hearty lunch. So easy – I don’t even peel my vegetables, just wash them thoroughly. Then depending on my mood, I might add lentils or pearl barley or spices such as Garam Masala, Tumeric, Cumin…..with these soups, anything goes!
For this soup I used
2 x carrots.
1 x large sweet potato.
1 x chopped celery stalk.
1 x chopped onion.
1/2 x chopped red chilli.
500ml boiling water.
1 x cube low salt vegetable stock.
Ground black pepper and garlic salt to taste and a little coriander to make it pretty…….
Sweat the onion and celery for five minutes. Add all vegetables, boiling water, stock and season to taste. Bring to boil and the simmer for 20 minutes. Place all ingredients into a blender and there you have it, a thick, tasty, low calorie, filling soup with all the nutrients intact.
