I bought a great book a few years ago called Super Foods To Boost Your Mood which is full of delicious recipes that are healthy, give you energy and generally make you feel great.
One of the recipes in the book that I have made time and time again is the vegetable soup. Its so easy to make, tastes delicious, its healthy and packed full of vitamins.
1 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
400g/12oz diced vegetables (such as broccoli, peppers, leeks, carrots, celery, sweet potato)
400g/12oz jar of passata
300ml/10fl oz stock (I use Bouillon)
Pinch of dried oregano
Start by heating the olive oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat and add the onion. Stir for a minute or two until the onion is soft, not brown.
Add the garlic and diced vegetables and stir.
Cover and leave to sweat for a couple of minutes. Add the passata, stock, oregano and season then simmer, covered, for 20-30 minutes until all the vegetables are soft.
When I make this I usually have a bowl there and then, then I divide it into portions, freeze some then pop the rest in the fridge. It doesn’t last long! Try it out!
