RECIPE - Super Speed Soup

This is another recipe which I've seen mentioned on a few Slimming World related sites, which I'm only replicating here for reference. Its full of lots of speed ingredients, so should help speed up your weight loss. The recipe is enough for a huge pot of very thick and filling soup, and it freezes very well too, so its worth the effort of buying everything and making it up.

Ingredients
1 can mixed bean salad
1 can green lentils
2 cans chopped tomatoes
1 can baked beans
Handful of split lentils
2 large leeks
1 large onion
4 large carrots
2 parsnips
Green, red or yellow pepper
2 beef stock cubes
Salt & pepper
Mixed herbs
(I also add garlic and chilli, though these aren’t in the original recipe!)

Method
  1. Add all the ingredients into a large soup pot, with enough water to cover all the ingredients
  2. Bring to the boil, then simmer for approximately 30 minutes, or until vegetables are soft
  3. Either leave chunky, or blend for a smooth soup
