    Carrot, squash, sweet potato and onion is delish. I don't do exact quantities but this week it was 6 carrots, one squash, 3sweet potatoes and an onion with a couple of veg stock cubes. Simmer til cooked and blitz. A wee bit coriander would've finished it for me but its not everyone's taste. It was filling and syn free!

    I make a lovely veg soup that is nice and filling.

    1 onion,
    1 leek
    3 pieces celery
    3-4 carrots
    1-2 potatoes
    thyme
    worchestshire sauce
    handful red lentils
    stock cube 3-4 chicken and veg


    I eat it chunky or blitzed depending on mood, I leave the skins on everything for extra fibre, and the lentils really thicken up the soup.

    Pearl barley is actually great for thickening up soups and stews as well, and is syn free.

    I make up my own soups as i go along, with whatever is left in the fridge.

    I can't wait to start making soup again - I've really missed it during the summer and if I have to eat another salad again this year... well!!!

    Has SW got a book on soups ? Has anyone tried any of them out ? I love soups, was thinking of buying one of the books to get me inspired for winter :D.

    There's a really nice recipe for minestrone in one of Nigella's books. I put it in my blog on here a while back, and there's a picture on there too, but copied and pasted here. Would be nice with some left over shredded chicken instead of the parmesan too
    a mixture of green veg - I used 1 courgette, 1 leek, a bunch of spring greens and around 100g of fine green beans
    100g of pasta
    1 litre of veg stock made from a cube
    salt and pepper
    fry light or olive oil

    Slice the veg finely: quarter the leek and courgette lengthways and then chop up into nice little cubes. Fry these in a heavy pan sprayed with fry light or add a spoonful of olive oil (6.5 syns per tbspn) and cook gently for around five minutes. Shred the cabbage and cut the beans in half or smaller if you prefer - you won't be pureeing this soup - put these in the pan for another five minutes more. Season with salt and pepper to suit. In the meantime put the kettle on and make up the stock. I used two cubes for mine. Pour the stock into the pan with the veg and bring to the boil. Lower the heat and simmer gently with a lid on for around 20 minutes. Add some pasta - you can get nice little soup pasta, or use whatever you have in. Cook for another 10 minutes. Leave to cool with the lid off before serving.

    The soup is really fresh tasting. I sprinkled mine with some parmesan, which worked very well (1.5 syns per tbspn). If you leave off the cheese and avoid the olive oil it would be syn free on ee and green.​

    I love making soup, especially easy if you have a pressure cooker and stick blender. I usually fry all my veg in a good glug of olive oil before blasting them in the pressure cooker, but yesterday I skipped that stage. Chopped and dropped 1 onion, 1 sweet peeled sweet potato, 3 carrots, 2 cloves of garlic, in the pressure cooker with cold water, dried mixed herbs, s&p and a stock cube. Cooked for 10 minutes once the button on the cooker had popped up. It went lovely and thick when I whizzed it with the stick blender and wasn't bad at all. Did miss the taste of olive oil a bit, but saved a good lot of syns I reckon so had a really big bowlful. Would have been nice with a capsicum and some chilli too maybe? Would be happy to cook it like that again

    CHUNKY POTATO AND BEAN SOUP - Serves 4

    1.5 Syns per serving.

    1 tbsp. olive oil - 6 Syns
    2 cloves of garlic, crushed
    1 carrot, diced
    1 stick of celery, sliced
    600g potatoes, peeled and diced
    400g tin kidney beans, drained and rinsed
    One and a half tsp dried mixed herbs
    1 vegetable stock cube
    850ml water
    2 tsp tomato puree
    2 tbsp. freshly chopped parsley

    Heat the oil in a large pan and gently fry the garlic, carrot, celery and potatoes for 3-4 minutes.
    Add the remaining ingredients and bring to the boil.
    Simmer for 10-15 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender. Season to taste and sprinkle with the parsley to serve.

    I have done this before using Frylight, instead of olive oil but it doesn't cook or taste quite as good - only my opinion, of course! :) I've also tried blending it and that works just as well as leaving it chunky.
