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.

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!

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!!!

I made soup last night for the first time ever!!! I took a butternut squash and chopped half of it up, chopped up a couple of peppers and crushed a clove of garlic. I put all this into the saucepan with some hot chilli powder. Added 1 litre of water and brought to the boil then simmered for about 30 minutes. I let it cool a little then blitzed with a hand blender. It was actually quite nice and made loads. Have frozen a couple of portions and will be able to have some tonight while waiting on my dinner to cook! :)

Great recipes!

I love sweetcorn and chilli soup, which is just stock, garlic, frozen sweetcorn, seasoning and dried chilli flakes to taste (add half a teaspoon and go from there!). Blitz with a hand blender. The sweetcorn makes it really sweet and creamy with a chilli kick which is great in the cold weather! You can make it really thick by adding more sweetcorn.

I also love pea and mint soup, stock, garlic, frozen peas, a pinch of dried mint and seasoning to taste. Blitz with a hand blender.

And chinese-style soup, using a small stir fry mix (beansprouts, carrots, mushrooms, waterchestnuts etc) add some stock, chopped chilli, garlic, ginger, and some chinese 5 spice. I also add fine rice noodles to make it really filling.

I love soup! I make big batches of everything and freeze them (apart from the last one as that can't be frozen), and start with about a pint and a half of stock.
