Spring Vegetable Soup

Spring Vegetable Soup

This is such a tasty filling vegetable soup,  however what’s great is is also quite light! No cream in sight!

When I make it I  tend to make a big batch and I take it to work for lunch at my desk! So beats a sandwich, filling and full of those all important vegetables. Five a day is the aim the NHS suggests this,however  recently,  I’ve heard it’s even higher, well this soup will certainly help get the fibre in. It also tastes really good too – it’s easypesylemonsqueezy and there are 10 different veggies in the recipe. Feel free to play around with it, I’m sure there are more that would work well?

Enjoy and let me know if you try this spring vegetable soup and leave me a comment if you do

Thanks
