Thank you very much :)

Hmmmmm I usually have half of the carton when I have it so I'd put that down at 6.25 syns.

I might just have a third of the carton from now on as that would be a little less :)

So much for it being in the healthy range!

Yea soups can be quite decieving! You can make your own that are free?? That way you can have as much as you like! What plan are you on? There are some that are Healthy Extras aswell!

As I say I only started today and I haven't been shopping yet. Was late for work so had to grab something quickly and that soup was in there.

I don't have a liquidiser either so probably couldn't really make my own soups - am not a great cook so not really sure where to start.

Is there a place where I could find out the recipes for free soups?

You can buy a stick blender for something like a fiver from supermarkets if you wanted to start making your own soups - saves you buying a food processor you might not use ever again!

I started off like that, with a stick blender - now I use my food processor all the time!

Its okay if your not a great cook - im no Jamie Oliver i can tell you!! lol

Just boil whatever vegetables until 'mushy' then blend adding some water and an oxo cube until its like soup :) There must be some recipes in the recipe section. Try searching for 'soups'

Only the carrot and coriander or the root veg medley x 300g.
But making your own really is the way to go. You'll get a huge pot for a lot less syns and a lot less ££s, and you don't even need a stick blender. Some soups can be left chunky or just take a potato masher to them to blend them.
