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 in this easy Spring Vegetable Soup!

When I make it I  tend to make a big batch I then freeze it in portions.

I can then take it to work for lunch at my desk! It so beats a sandwich, filling and full of those all important vegetables.

I sometimes eat in with a granary roll, or crisp-breads – yum 

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

 

  • white onion
  • leeks
  • celery
  • mushrooms
  • potato
  • carrots 
  • spring onions
  • green beans
  • courgettes
  • asparagus

 

See 10!! Now that’s a lot!

  1. Loved this last year and been waiting for spring to come again! Must make this soon xx

  2. I added chopped Jersey potatoes, skins on, instead of peeled large potato. Delicious recipe which the whole family enjoyed with some crusty bread!
