Easy Soup Recipe

Cold days=hot soup
This recipe can be used for all sorts of occupations, whether you take it in a tupperware are reheat in a microwave, or heat it up at home and keep it warm in a thermoflask if you don’t have access to a microwave for your job.
Main ingredients: one diced onion, one diced potato (medium size) 4-6 medium carrots or 6-10 smaller & one stock cube.

  1. fry the onion in a saucepan using a 1kcal spray until soft (5-10mins)
  2. Add the sliced carrots and diced potato then cover with approx 800ml-1L of hot stock
  3. Season with pepper and ground coriander and bring to the boil then add a lid and simmer for 15-20 minutes until vegetables are cooked then remove from heat.
    4)Blitz together in a food processor or using a hand held blender
  4. Add water if needed
  5. Enjoy (this can produce around 3-4 servings)
    Alternatively you can replace the carrot and potato for a sweet potato and buttenut squash (add chilli flakes) or you could replace the carrots for broccoli.

Yep I like soup as a meal. Especially homemade as it tastes better and is healthier.

To make things easier at the start I tend to chop an onion into about 4 pieces then stick it in the microwave on full power for 3 mins. No need to finely chop it if it’s going to be blended.


Good tip. I’ll use that next time to save me some time, thanks mate.

Onions make the world go round! The basis of just about every country’s cuisine.

I don’t really like dishes with onions, but I find this one interesting. I usually add seasonal vegetables and make sure to add cheese. If you whip it with a blender, you get a very soft soup.
