I’ve followed my smoothie – lunch – soup diet for about three weeks now. I’ve seriously cut down on my sugar/chocolate/cake intake, and I’ve lost about half a stone already. My trousers are feeling looser and my shirts aren’t so tight around the middle. Something is definitely working!
The next soup is an old favourite – leek and potato. Following on from the chunky chicken soup, I didn’t blizt the vegetables after cooking, so I had something more to chewy on. Really lovely, and really whomesome. Yum!

My best intentions of a soup a day were somewhat scupper by lack of planning and foresight as to what was coming up diary-wise. Nights out and lunches with friends meant I had to put my soup plan on hold.
Back to it today with a carrot and coriander soup. Really easy and just like the pea soup – carrots and coriander instead of the peas! The BBC recipe also called for a potato so, learning from my heavy, starchy last attempt I just put a small one in. Onions, stock and a large handful of coriander all blitzed together made a rather lovely soup! I feel healthy again!!!
Do you have a (easy) soup recipe you’d like me to try? Tweet me at @jelly_wobbler.
