Yummy homemade soup

Soup is a major part of our new fitness regime and I normally try to make a homemade soup to keep us going at work through the week. I like to use a variety of vegetables that add colour, texture and taste to the soup. One of my favourites is broccoli and stilton but due to the high fat content this is a special occasion soup and normally is one that I make for the troops at Christmas.
Here is this years offering bubbling away.

I have also made the weeks soup with butternut squash, courgette, leeks, onions, carrots, celery, french beans, peppers and a secret ingredient..... fresh red chilli. Wow does that give it a bite.

Soup in the making

The thing is with homemade soups as with all meals that are homemade you know what you are getting. We have been doing a lot of the Dieters Hairy Bikers meals. The beauty of these are that they are low fat but packed with flavour. One of my all time favourites is the Spanish Chicken.
We say give them a go and you may be surprised.
