Favourite soup recipes?
In preperation for being a good SWer after being a fairweather SWer for the last week or two, I wondered what everyones favourite homemade soups are? Discuss.... lol
Week 1: -7
Week 2: -3.5
chunky chicken and veg.
I make it with the bones of a roast chicken to make the stock, when the stock is ready strain the bones out, throw in the meat from the bones, some, swede, couple of chopped pots, carrott, leek, mixed herbs and bay leaves then when all the veg is cooked thicken with some thickening granules.
mmmmm delicious I am going to make some on monday with the turkey bones.
pepper and tomato soup was very nice and the chicken noodle soup was nice
Just a few of them:
curried butternut squash
broccoli and cauliflower
potato and creamed sweetcorn
broccoli and laughing cow blue cheese
sweet potato and coconut
My fave soup is a chicken veg soup I do almost every week
Sautee some onions and garlic in spray oil, add chopped carrots, butternut squash, sweet potato, parsnips and red peppers. Stir well, season with salt & pepper and cook for a few minutes. Add 1/3 cup of red lentils and 2 litres of chicken stock. Bring to the boil and simmer for 1 hour. 15 minutes before cooking time elapses, add seasoned boneless skinless chicken thighs and simmer until cooked. Take out the chicken and allow to cool then chop into bite sized chunks. When the veggies are soft, blend until smooth. Add the chicken pieces back in, stir and serve. Delicious and very filling!

Like the sound of that chicken soup honey, I am making soups to put in the freezer this week to kick start the new year and help shift the lbs put on recently.
Trying hard not to fail,but if I do it's not the end of the world as long as I pick myself up and get back on track.
Back on plan for the last time, have lost over 5 stones since March 2012.
Was class greatest loser this year.
Losses slowing down a bit now, but target is in sight :-)
dont you have to count the bones and stock left over from chicken carcass as syns?
I wondered about this too, so I checked with a consultant who said it would be free as long as all fat was skimmed off.

My favourite soup recipe
Carrot and Butternut Squash Soup
Chop up and simmer for 20 mins......blend and serve....nice with a swirl of Fat free natural yohurt....yum yum
- Lots of Carrots
- Lots of Butternut Squash
- Lots of Onions
- Lots of Corriander
- Salt and Pepper
Same as above but I add freshly grated nutmeg and use VLF fromage frais to make it creamy. (and a bit of garlic)
I love celery soup and tattie soup, but I have two lazy & quick ones I do when I can't be bothered cooking. The first I read online-maybe even on here? The second was born of laziness and needing to use up some veg!
1. 'Tomato' soup
Take a can of baked beans and a can of tomtoes (whole/plum/chopped/with herbs....up to you), whizz together and warm through. Scrummy. Add a little yogurt, herbs, woucester (sp) sauce etc to personal taste. Surprisingly filling.
2. Lazy Squash Soup.
Soften an onion or couple of leeks in a pan with frylight. chuck in a bag of pre-prepared butternut squash & sweet potato, and one or two chopped tatties (to thicken). Add water/stock to taste, a teeny touch of curry powder and simmer till veg is soft (doesn't take long with these veggies). Blitx into a lovely thick, hearty soup, and finish with a swirl of fromage frais, or, if you've a few syns left, a spoon of VLF creme fraiche. To die for!
The kids were having a Maggi Chicken Noodle soup today, but wasn't sure if I could have this? Really miss a good homemade chicken noodle soup!
leek and potato - must have some milk in to make it extra creamy - have not found any better than my hubbie's homemade
Roasted garlic and tomato - just roast a tray of toms and a bulb of garlic - blitz the toms with a pint of veg stock add creme fracihe if you like it creamy
Carrot and ginger - boil carrotss in pint of veg stock add some grated ginger and blitz - great if you've got a cold
Watercress, spinach, rocket and spring onion - boil in pint of veg stock and blitz - very good for a bit of a detox day!
French onion - frylight some finely chopped onions and add chicken stock - thicken with either cornflour or to make syn free use a bit of smash
Love soups esp. in this weather!!!
