5 soup recipes

Soup is easy to batch cook, is filling and low in calories. I love them for lunch or dinner and find that a toasted slice of fresh sourdough compliments each of the soups below perfectly. Soup is an easy meal for our digestive system to receive and the ones without dairy can be a great low-inflammatory meal option.


(All recipes serve 2 with some left over for lunch the next day)

My take on a Classic Minestrone-


Please note that this recipe is very versatile and can be made with any leftover vegetables you have at home. I've listed my favourites below, but it works the same way with all.


What you’ll need:

- X2 Peeled Medium Carrots

- X10 Small Potatoes

- X2 Onions

- X2 Cloves Garlic

- x3 leeks

- 1 Bag Spinach or Kale (or half and half)

- X1 Medium Zucchini

- X1 Organic Low Salt Vegetable Stock Cube

- X1 Cup Barley

- Salt and Pepper to Taste

- X2 Cups Frozen Green Peas

Method:

1. Cook chopped onion and garlic in a saucepan over medium heat till softened (about 10 mins)

2. Dice all the vegetables into roughly 1.5 cm2 cubes and roughly chop the leaves into strips

3. Fill a large saucepan with water and bring to the boil before adding your stock cube and allowing it to disintegrate.

4. Combine all chopped vegetables, onion & garlic mix, barley grains, salt & pepper and allow to boil for 40 mins before lowering heat and simmering for a further 30. Allow soup to sit for a few hours and then reheat as this will deepen the flavour and add depth to the dish.

Extra Options:


- Prod a potato with a fork to make sure it is cooked all the way through and remove from heat if this is the case.

- Add a cup of frozen peas to the soup 4/5 mins before removing from the heat for extra protein

- Boil some whole grain fusilli pasta and combine for a heartier meal

- X1 Large Potato (peeled and diced into small cubes)

- X1 Large Onion (peeled and diced)

- ½ Bag Kale (removed from stalks and chopped into strips)

- Salt & Pepper to taste


Method:

1. Soften onion and garlic in a large saucepan for about 10 mins before adding rest of ingredients with 2 cups of water and combine till everything is mixed together.

2. Cook for 30 mins at a medium heat and add a tablespoon at a time of boiling water if consistency becomes too thick. Note that this is stew like and the texture should be thick but still “soupy”.

3. Add salt and pepper to taste

- X1 Small Pumpkin (peeled and deseeded)
