    I used to love the SuperSpeed Soup and would have it a few lunch times a week. It was a great boost to my weekly loss, even when I only had it twice a week.

    But, recently I got so fed up of it I was actually heaving with a bowl of it on the table, so today I tried to make a new soup with bits and bobs I found in the fridge and cupboard.

    I'm not sure how super speedy it is, any comments greatly welcomed.

    2 Large Leeks
    2 Large Onions
    1/2 a Broccoli
    3 Cloves of Garlic
    200g Green Beans
    1 Tin of Mixed Bean Salad
    1 Green Pepper
    2 Spring Onions
    1 Cup of Green Lentils
    2 Vegetable Stock Cubes
    Mixed Herbs

    I chopped everything up, put it in a large pan, covered it in boiling water, brought it to the boil and allowed it to simmer for about 35 minutes.

    Then I blitzed it in the blender.

    I was only experimenting but all of my family have tried it and really like it. It's not very nice to look at but I liked the taste.

    Looks good and should be every bit as good as the super speedy one. Which in my opinion only super speeded the wind!!!!!

    I have tried at least 12 homemade soups in the last few weeks and I find that those weeks I appear to loose about 2.5-----3 lb a week! I agree with the comments about superspeed soups, super wind!

    Oh I can see this is superspeed and I heaved as the first pan was even cooking so a medal to you for lasting so long!!
    My hubby adores the superpeed soup and he loses well those weeks he has it (in another room, well away from me ;))

    So I long to have a soup that is baked bean free yet super and this sounds lovely.
    Plus I love you even more as I get to use up the green lentils. :)
