Healthy Creamy Vegetable Soup

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 big bowl of chunky Healthy Creamy Vegetable Soup.

So here’s my Healthy Creamy Vegetable Soup slimming style

Free Creamy Vegetable soup?? Why?

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

BUT and here it is;  why be so low or free when using a slimmed milk makes the most creamy filling and satisfying soup ever!! I just don’t get it? Why not add slimmed milk rather than not?

It makes sooooo much differance and gives it it’s creamy texture.

Surely it’s better to eat amazing tasty filling soup than it is to not enjoy it as much and make it free. 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!

Batch Cooking Vegetable Soup?

Here’s my work lunch and some for the freezer too! I tend to double up!!

It freezes perfectly either in those zip lockable bags, or just tubs you already have (see mine!)

Get those Healthy Veggies in!

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!

Also a tip from me. Get the kids eating soup!! It’s such a master stroke to get all those nutrients inside. Why not ask them to help too?

Also it works perfectly fine with those veggies in the fridge that have possibly seen better days. You know those lurking!! That’s why I sometimes call this my ‘fridge soup’

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  soup have a look at those colours!

This hearty Healthy Cream Vegetable Soup is a recipe that’s perfect for the whole family, slimming or not!!

Now that’s a result! Why the hell would you want to cook twice?!
