    From my days of slimming world this is a recipe I use to use, and now still make for the family!

    6/8 carrots, small swede, (or buy a bag of ready diced carrots and swede either fresh or frozen)
    large onion chopped
    bag of cauliflower and broccoli florets
    3 large potatoes chopped
    tin of chopped tomatoes
    tin of baked beans
    herbs
    couple of veg stock cubes


    boil all of ingredients, in a large cauldron size saucepan, until veg well cooked. Liquidise and beautiful thick soup for all the family. Tastes even better the next day as flavours enhanced.

    I use any veg I have in the kitchen or that are cheap at the supermarket. If you put it in the fridge when cool it lasts for a few days ... if the family leave it that long! Hope you enjoy!

    Yum - I'm so going to make that mexican one today! Thanks.

    Also, a gorgeous soup is spicey parsnip, but parsnips are a bit out of season at the moment (don't they have to be frosted first?) so I'll post it later in the year x
