Easy Soup Recipes

Today I'm sharing my two of my favorite easy soup recipes for Winter because healthy eating is part of looking and feeling good about yourself.

It's holiday time, the time of indulgence, and yet there's still nothing more comforting and impressive to put on the table than a bowl of warming home-made soup.

But time is short so you need a recipe that's throws itself together. I like uncomplicated, if it needs clever chopping it's not for me! 

These easy soup recipes are quick, delicious, filling, nourishing, good for the figure, impressive to serve and cheap to make. What's not to like!

Add some tasty bread or toast of any description, a sprinkle of parmesan or fresh herbs and it's a feast for the eyes too. A chunk of cheese makes it into a complete lunch or dress it up for a dinner party starter.

They're both perfect to freeze so whether you're dining alone or feeding a crowd, you can have something ready when you come in from the cold. These easy soup recipes are old, too long to know where they came from. 

Ren Lentil and Tomato Soup

1 onion, 2 medium carrots, 2 celery sticks

7 oz red split lentils

Tin tomatoes and 2 Tbsp tomato puree

3 pints veg stock, 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Peel and roughly chop onion, carrots and celery. Saute in oil or low calorie spray for a few minutes, stir in lentils, tomato puree and tinned tomatoes. Stir for couple of minutes then add stock and 1 tspn balsamic vinegar. 

Bring to boil, reduce heat and add balsamic vinegar. Cover and simmer for 35 – 40 mins. Whizz with hand blender and season to taste.

** Option to spice it up: add 1 tspn cumin and 1 tspn chilli flakes when sauteeing.

Tex Mex Soup

1 lge onion, 2 sticks celery, 1 red pepper

2 cloves garlic,

1 tsp each cumin and oregano

½ tsp chilli powder

1.5 litres vegetable stock

4 Tbsp tomato puree

1 tin of each tomatoes, red kidney beans and sweetcorn

Peel and chop onion, celery, red pepper and saute all in oil or low calorie spray for 5 minutes.

Stir in herbs and spices, pour in stock, tomato puree and tin of tomatoes. Bring to the boil then reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 mins.

Drain and rinse kidney beans and sweetcorn and add to pan. Simmer for 5-10 mins just to heat them through. Blend half to leave it chunky or blend right down to a puree which is my taste. I often make double this quantity and may add an additional tin of butter or cannelini beans if I want it thicker still. May not need any further seasoning.

** A couple of days on either of these easy soup recipes will help you to drop 2/3 pounds for the Holidays!

And... now you're here it would be great if you'd like to look around at the COLORS, SHAPES, and STYLES that help you to Style Yourself Confident.
