A fun but very busy weekend has been topped off with a cold, temperature and a lack of energy! I was craving something warm and nutritious so made my favourite, very simple “pure goodness” soup! This is filling and completely healthy so I often just have a bowl as a snack when I get home from work to keep off the hunger pangs untill dinner! After a bowl of this any nasty cold should start to feel abit better! (I’m guessing summer is truely over?)
Serves 6- 8 (great for the freezer!)
1 White Cabbage
1 Small Butternut Squash
2 Celery Sticks
2 Cans of Chopped Tomatoes
1 Litre Vegetable Stock
Fresh herb of your choice (Coriander, parsley or basil)
Slice the cabbage, onions, leek and celery. Chop the butternut squash and carrots into small chunks of equal sizes. Add all of the vegetables into a large saucepan with the spray oil and fry for 5 minutes to release the flavour of the vegetables. (It’ll smell lovely at this point!). Then add the vegetable stock, tomatoes and a large pinch of black pepper and simmer untill all the vegetables are soft (about 20-25 minutes). You can either sprinkle the herbs on top or if freezing you can mix them in to add the flavour.
Serve with a big chunk of warmed through crusty bread..or if your being healthy like me then just enjoy the soup on its own!
