Nothing beats a bowl of warm soup on a cold winters day. Soup is an easy dinner to prepare and cook. Plus soup is always tasty and it can be very cheap too. It also has a number of health benefits as well. Firstly, soup can help to keep you warm, it can help you to lose weight, it keeps you satiated and it’s great for digestion. We love soup and we hope you enjoy the soups below.
Do you enjoy a big bowl of soup and if so, what’s your favourite? Let me know in the comments below.
My son Ted, who is eight years old, loves chicken or salmon noodle soup. It’s one of his favourite meals that I cook for my little family. As a mum it pleases me that he enjoys this dish. I always use bone broth, chicken or vegetable stock to cook all the ingredients in. Therefore I know he is getting a lot of different nutrients his body need to survive and thrive.
When I make vegan meals during the week I’m always a little bit scared of what Ted will think or if he will eat the dish at all. Ted can be a very fussy eater and it does not make my life easy. I’m forever playing hid the vegetables but occasionally I serve up a big bowl like this one.
Although I wasn’t sure how this meal would go down I had a feeling that Ted may like this dish as it still had noodles in it. In the end I got an alright from my son and I was pleased as he loved the broth and noodles. My husband and I really enjoyed this meal. We hope you will too.
Green vegetables have always been a favourite of mine. I eat that many greens my husband has nicknamed me the ‘Rabbit’. Well Howard I’m now drinking my greens too. Winter is finally here in the UK. The temperature has dropped and it’s cold outside baby! One of the best ways to keep the body well during Winter months is to heat it up from the inside out.
Eating or drinking soup is a great way to help warm the body in the colder months. It’s also a brilliant way to detox too. Broccoli is a fantastic detox veggie. It contains a chemical compound called sulforaphane. Sulforaphane is a compound that can help fight infectious cells in the body. Eating broccoli can help to to boost the liver’s ability to clear bad chemicals from the body. Therefore drinking it in a soup is even healthier. Plus it’s a super tasty way to fill up on nutrients.
Cauliflower is a very underrated vegetable. It’s packed full of nutrients that the body needs to thrive. Cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable that is high in fibre and B-vitamins. It provides antioxidants that can protect against cancer and it contains fibre that can help with weight loss and digestion. Cauliflower contains choline, a nutrient that can also help with memory and learning.
Personally, I don’t think we eat enough cauliflower in this house. In fact I know we don’t eat enough because there was a cauliflower leftover in the fridge from Christmas. Above the cauliflower in our fridge was a cartoon of coconut drink. Therefore I decided to combine the two and add curry powder, salt and coconut cream. The results were amazing and I just had to share this healthy New Year recipe with you.
3 Vegan Soups are all so yummy. They are very easy to prepare and cook. All the ingredients in these meals can be frozen so you could make big batches of these soups and freeze them for another occasion. These soups make a delicious lunch or a scrummy dinner. I will often eat the leftovers from the previous evening meal. To me, they taste better than the night before. However you decide to eat these soups. as always, please enjoy. Thank you.
