So don’t feel guilty, your classic heinz tomato soup will always be there for you.

         Ingredients

  • Half a butternut squash
  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 3 mediam parsnips
  • 400 ml of warm water
  • 3 teaspoons of coconut oil
  • 1 onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 table spoon of mixed herbs
  • 2 cubes of chicken stock
  • 1 cube of vegetable stock
  • Salt and pepper

 

            Method 

  1. Place a large saucepan with your coconut oil in it on a high heat
  2. Dice your onion and garlic, put into the saucepan and cook until lightly brown
  3. Whilst the onion is cooking chop your parsnips, butternut squash and sweet potato and place them out the way for now
  4. Now you want to make your stock, so get 400ml of warm water and mix in your stock cubes and your herbs
  5. By now your onions should be lightly brown. Poor in your stock and give it a mix
  6. Next chuck in your vegetables and give another good stir
  7. Add a good amount of salt and pepper then turn down the heat and leave to simmer
  8. You want to leave your veg simmering for about an hour, but don’t forget to check on it giving it a little stir each time and adding more seasoning if needed.
  9. Once your vegetables are nice and soft (stab a knife through them, if they fall apart they’re done) you want to take it off the heat and leave to cool for about 5 minutes
  10. This is where the magic happens. Once your soup has cooled off slightly you need to get an electric whisk and blend all the vegetables together until you are left with a smooth consistency.
