    I don't use a recipe, I make it up.

    Basically, soup is onion, vegetables, seasoning/herbs and stock.

    One of my faves is a root veg pack from Tesco or wherever, with an onion, some carrot, swede, parsnip, fry off onion, peel and chop veg, add to pan, seaon, add herbs, then add stock. Boil until all the veg is really soft, then whizz with a stick blender or in a food processor.

    You can also do things like curried parsnip, with some cumin etc in, it all depends on what you like!

    red lentils
    tin of toms
    cummin or chill powder or paprika (depending on your mood!)
    stock
    red pepper
    garlic
    cooked and blended - easy!

    i like carrot and lentil, chop some carrots and onions put in a pan with a few red lentils and chicken bovril and some mixed herbs, bring to boil and simmer until carrots are tender then cool a little bit then blend, very simple

    Just about any soup recipe can be adapted to be SW friendly so either google "soup recipe" or visit one of the many online recipe sites - i personally like the BBC Good Food site. As long as you either use Bovril for a syn-free stock or count the syns in stock cubes, and substitute something else in place of cream the only limit is your imagination.
