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!
