Daily detox soup – carrot and coriander soup

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.

Daily detox soup – pea soup

It’s the time of year when you look at your waist, the empty wrappers of Roses and Quality Street (having wasted an extraordinary amount of time cross-checking colours with reference cards) and the mountains of calories still waiting to be consumed trapped inside chocolate, cake and mince pies in the kitchen. It’s time to take action so I am going on a mini health kick. I’ve decided to have a fruit Smoothie for breakfast, a main course lunch and healthy soup for dinner. No bread and cutting down the sweets (not entirely…..baby steps to start with). I’m not really a soup person so my jelly wobble is to make different soups for my dinner, and I will post one each day.

Today I tried pea soup because all the recipes say it’s easy. Fry some onions, add chicken stock and loads of peas. Easy-pea, er, sy. I thought it wouldn’t be that filling so I decided to throw in a potato to thicken it up. Whizz end it up, added in some crème fraîche when serving and it was lovely. Not sure how filling it’ll be, as it was demolished in seconds!! And I feel righteously healthy. Now to resist the mince pies calling my name from the kitchen…
