    Hearty Chicken, Lentil & Butternut Squash Soup

    Free on extra easy

    1 large onion
    3 cloves of garlic
    1 small butternut pumpkin
    1 sweet potato
    2 large carrots
    1 large parsnip
    1 large swede
    ½ cup split red lentils
    4 skinless boneless chicken thighs
    1.5 litres chicken stock
    Salt & pepper
    Chopped fresh parsley
    1 heaped teaspoon paprika

    Peel and roughly chop all the veggies.

    Sweat the onions and garlic in the frylight until translucent.

    Throw in all the other veggies, stir well and allow to cook for about 15 minutes, stirring regularly so it doesn't burn at the bottom.

    Add the lentils and stock. Mix well and bring to the boil then lower the heat to a simmer.

    Add the chicken thighs on top of the veggies but submerged in the stock. Allow to cook for 15 minutes. Take the chicken out and set aside.

    Allow the veggies to cook until very soft, then blitz with a hand blender to your desired texture. Shred the chicken and add back to the soup. Mix well and add parsley and paprika.

    Thai Butternut Squash Soup
    Originally from WW magazine

    Free on all

    Low fat cooking spray
    1 large onion, chopped
    2 sticks celery, chopped
    15g (1/2oz) fresh ginger, chopped
    2-3 cloves garlic, chopped
    2 lime leaves shredded (optional)
    2 tsp Thai 7 Spice powder (I always use 1tsp as it's too hot for me)
    600g (1lb 5oz) squash, peeled, de-seeded and chopped roughly
    600ml (20floz) veg stock, made from a cube
    Handful of fresh coriander, chopped, plus some for garnish

    Spray pan with low fat cooking spray and sauté the onion, celery, ginger, garlic and lime leaves, if using, for 5-6 mins to soften.

    Add the Thai 7 spice powder and squash, and stir together. Pour in stock, bring to boil, cover and simmer for 20 minutes or so until all the vegetables are soft.

    Throw in the coriander, pour the soup in blender and blend until fairly smooth (depending how chunky you like it).

    Season and serve with more coriander sprinkled over.

    This soup can be frozen.
