    i finally made my soup! yey! lolz

    Just need to confirm with the WW guru's!
    My soup was made from 200g of frozen veg all of which was on the free list apart from the peas (and there was probs less than a table spoon of those) and i used 1 level table spoon of cornflour to thicken the soup.

    Please can someone tell me how to point this.

    mix veg and tin tomato - all free
    herbs and spices - free

    1 table spoon peas (within 200g of mix veg)
    1tablespoon cornflour (for whole pot of soup)

    atleast 8 servings in the whole lot.

    Peas - dont have any so not sure - but would say 1 would cover it if its a tablespoon full.

    Cornflour - 15g (which is about a tablespoon) is 1pt (53 calories and 0g fat)

    I only know that cos I have just added 15g to my chicken casserole that I am having for lunch. Can't wait!!

    2 points for a whole recipe, so 0.5 for portion if you split it to 4, or 0.25 if you split it into 8. I would just have a bigger portion and count 0.5.

    Roasted tomato and red pepper soup 0 pts
    6 halved tomatoes

    2 halved red peppers
    2 onions quartered
    2 cloves of garlic
    Put tomatoes and peppers cut side down on a baking tray sprayed with frylite. On top put onions and garlic. Spray again. Roast in oven at 200 C for 40 mins. Put in a food processor and blend. Push through a sieve and add 1 pint of veg or chicken stock. Warm up and serve.

    TIP: In a sieve there are some tomatoes and peppers and bits left. I freeze it and use it as a pasta sauce with some mince:)

    Hiya i get 1 point for the cornflour + ½ point for the peas.
    so the whole pan of soup will be 1½ points which is less than ½point per serving.

    Like the others have said either have a big portion for ½ point or a small portion for 0 points.

    Have a look on the recipe thread i put my fave soup on there-BNS+Red Pepper soup NO points.

    Sona,here is recipe for a chicken soup. Still looking for chicken and rice soup.

    Thai Chicken Soup


    2 pints Chicken Stock
    227g/8oz Chicken breast skinned (3 pts)
    1 inch piece fresh ginger peeled and chopped
    Juice of 1 lime
    2 tsps soy sauce
    3 Spring onions slicked
    1 small fresh red chilli, deseeded and thinly sliced
    Salt & Pepper

    Put the chicken stock, chicken breasts and ginger in a saucepan. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat, cover the pan and simmer gently for 30-40 minutes.

    Remove the chicken from the pan and slice the meat thinly into strips. Return the sliced chicken to the pan with the lime juice, soy sauce, spring onions and chilli. Simmer gently for 5 minutes.

    Season to taste with salt and pepper.

    I would split it into 3 servings at 1 point each.

    Have a good day:)

    well to be honest i thought makig soup was going to take ages but my veg one was no effort at all so i feel a bit more confident making them now! My next soup is gona be the thai chicken one and also im going to try the pepper and tomato soup!... i like califower and cheese but im guessing the points in that will probs put me off! I buy the powder soups from tesco's ligher brand as they have points already on them but 1 whole point for one mug!

    now that im a professional veg soup maker myself i dont think i will be buying off the shelf (tidies chefs hat)
