Now that I have an almost fully functioning kitchen I wanted to try out my new hob and stockpot by making some soup.
This is a soup which I saw in Rosemary Conley’s magazine but the recipe is also online. It serves 4 and is only 108 calories and 0.5% fat per bowl but it’s surprisingly filling!
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tbsp chopped fresh thyme (I used dried thyme)
250g chestnut mushrooms, sliced
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
1.2 litres (2 pints) vegetable stock
2 bay leaves
1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley (this is for decoration so I left it out)
salt and freshly ground black pepper
Just before serving, stir in the parsley and serve hot or cold with a small crusty multigrain roll or a slice of gluten-free bread. (I had mine with some danish bread).
Do you think you’ll give this a try? Let me know how you get on!
