Homemade soup really is the ultimate healthy meal or snack. It’s warm, comforting, delicious and to top it off it won’t break the calorie balance (it’s less than 100 calories per serving!).

 

This healthy winter vegetable soup recipe is great for using up left-overs over the festive season and it really is so easy to make. I’ve included two ways of making it – the pan/traditional way and the soup maker way!!

 

I have a Morphy Richards soup maker and LOVE IT! I’m the first to admit that making soup the traditional way can be a little bit of a hassle (ok so it’s not much of a hassle, but it is a little bit!) but using a soup making takes away any hassle!! All you do is peel and chop up the veg, add it to the soup maker, add the stock/water and press a button!! In 21-28 minutes you have perfect soup that you can then blend with another touch of a button to your desired consistency. You can also make smoothies in it (yet to try!).

 

Soup makes an ideal warming lunch or a healthy snack and I honestly feel it is a must have in the fridge if you’re watching your weight.

 

So here is how to make this delicious winter vegetable soup – let me know if you try it!

 

P.S. To make the soup higher in protein simple stir in some cooked lentils or beans before serving!

 

Ingredients

  • 1 leek
  • 3 carrots (peeled)
  • 1 red onion
  • 4 celery sticked (trimmed)
  • 2 parsnips
  • 1 small sweet potato (peeled)
  • 600-700ml vegetable stock
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • salt & pepper to taste

Method

Step 1

Chop up your vegetables and add them into your soup maker along with the stock (I used a Knorr stock pot and mixed 1 pot with 700ml of boiling water) and press 'chunky'. Wait for 28 minutes and then press 'blend' to the desired consistency, stir in the cumin, salt and pepper. Serve! OR .......

Step 2

Chop up the vegetables and add them to a pan. Add the stock, bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 25 minutes until the vegetables are soft. Blend the mixture with a hand blender until your desired consistency. Stir in the herbs and simmer for 5-10 minutes before serving!
