RECIPE: Super Quick Nourishing Soup Recipe


As we are focusing on loving ourselves this month (and of course loving others!), I thought a recipe for some comforting soup is always the best place to start.

Now, this is not a recipe as such, but it is a basic outline for you to make your own speedy meal and then even freeze the leftovers - so you can be nourished again and again. This is the super-quick and lazy version, please feel free to peel and chop your veggies yourself though


WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 1-2 litres of vegetable stock

  • 1 bag of cubed soup mix (butternut squash and onion/mixed veg etc)

  • 1 bag of spring greens

  • 1 bag vegetable soup mix

  • 1 tsp mixed herbs

  • 1 tbsp honey/maple syrup

  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger

  • 1/2 tsp turmeric

  • 1/2 tsp dried chillies (or to your taste)

  • teriyaki sauce (to your taste, I like around 1 tbsp)

  • sweet chilli sauce (again to your taste, I like around 1 tbsp)

  • 1-2 tbsp Oyster sauce (or leave it out if you want a plant based version)

  • miso paste (optional)

METHOD:

  • Bring the stock up to a boil in a large pan

  • Add in all your herbs and sauces

  • Bring back to the boil and add your vegetables from the packet and one or two handfuls of the spring greens

  • Boil again for 10-15 minutes and then turn the heat down low and cook for around 1-2 hours (or more if you wish)

  • Finally, stir in a tablespoon of miso paste if you're using it.

  • Portion out into a big bowl and eat with a spoon and some crusty bread.

  • FREEZE NOTE: Allow to cool first and then portion it into freezable bags/boxes. Thaw thoroughly before reheating, always ensure food is piping hot.

I hope you enjoy!
