Healthy Creamy Vegetable Soup SW

When I’m on a quest to be super healthy (see what I did there??) There is nothing I  crave more than a filling warm bowl of chunky creamy Vegetable Soup. So here’s my Healthy Creamy Vegetable Soup SW style

I’ve seen many Slimming world Recipes for Vegetable Soup – all desperate to be Syn Free.

BUT and here it is;  why be Syn free when using 1 Syn (yes just 1) makes the most creamy filling and satisfying soup ever!! I just don’t get it? Surely it’s better to eat amazing tasty filling soup and use one Syn than it is to not enjoy it as much and make it zero syns. Anyway maybe that’s just me?

I tend to only blend half the soup and leave some of the veg whole. I’m sure it fills me up more? This is such a satisfying soup I don’t even need bread with it  if I’m having it for lunch! Here’s my work lunch and some for the freezer too!

Healthy Creamy Vegetable Soup SW

Soups are a great way to get those veggies in! Don’t feel limited to the veggies I’ve used, you could add celery, swede – whatever you like really! So please have a go at my Healthy Creamy Vegetable Soup SW style and let me know what you think! And please feel free to add a little more water at the end, I like my soup fairy thick but there are no issues at all with diluting a little!

If you love this soup I think you might also like my Roasted Butternut Squash and Tomato Syn Free Soup have a look!

It’s a recipe that’s perfect for the whole family, SW or not!! Now that’s a result!
