Red Day Soup recipes for red days!

#1
Hi

having got a hand blender for Xmas I've been having hours of fun creating soups, however they have all only been suitable for green days

I have searched the forms and search bar and i am really struggling!

does anyone have soup recipes that would be free on a red day??

Push it through a sieve when its blended, it should catch any seeds, but if you give it a really good blitz these should be minimal.

If you are really worried use passata in a carton which is pre-sieved and wonr have any seeds.

i made a gorgeous soup for a extra easy day (but could be for a red day if you class the potato as a healthy extra).

bought an unsmoked ham, cut off all the fat and soak overnight (to remove the salt). discard water.

then cook in boiling water as per instructions on packet. mine wasnt huge so 50 mins. once cooked remove ham and add leeks, carrots and potatoes and some of the ham cut into pieces.

it is really tasty - no need to blend.
just realised i should of added red lentils (i made this for lunch today) which makes it better suited as a extra easy day.

tonight, having ham, egg, chips and veg for tea.

thanks jojo...

one question, do you get seeds in the soup??

Im really funny about pips and seeds in food and when i mentioned this my mum pointed out there would be seeds in tinned toms?

Kate
how about using fresh tomatoes??

just put them into a bowl of hot water, which will make the skin easy to peel off, and the remove all seeds and chop up. You need to make sure the tomatoes are nice and ripe though for a lovely flavour.

There are some soup recipes on my blog:

Chinese chicken soup

1 large cooked chicken breast grated
few Spring onion very finely chopped
1 garlic clove grated
1cm of ginger grated
chicken oxo/chicken bovril
soy sauce
1 egg
1 or 1.5 pints water

all measurements are guestimates as I never really weight anything.......

Stirfry in frylight chopped spring onions, garlic & ginger until soft then add about a pint or so of water, add chicken oxo or chicken bovril, once it comes to boil, turn down heat and add grated chicken. turn down to a simmer add soy sauce to taste, add beaten egg, stirring all the time. The egg makes it look a bit 'stringy' but it honestly tastes delicious. This is syn free on red day, but you could also add a tin of creamed sweetcorn on EE or weigh the chicken as a HEB on a green day.

Potatoes can only be counted as healthy extras if you eat the skin. It's because of the fibre content within the skin. So if you're going to count them as a heb, don't peel them.
