Fill your boots…Soups!

Autumn is definitely here and today has been the first day I’ve actually had the heating on for longer than an hour. Whilst I was walking this morning with Mikey, I thought I should get organised and prepare some soups for the week ahead. I’ve made two different soups; creamy celery and potato soup and minestrone.

Here’s the recipe for creamy celery and potato soup as the other recipe can be found on the WW website.

Serves 4 and is 3 Propoints per serving

25g butter
5 celery sticks, chopped
100g potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 leek, trimmed & sliced
700ml vegetable stock
1 bay leaf
300ml semi-skimmed milk

1. Melt the butter in a saucepan, once melted add vegetables and cook for 5 minutes
2. Pour vegetable stock into saucepan and add the bay leaf
3. Bring to the boil and simmer for 20-25 minutes
4. Remove bay leaf
5. Leave soup to cool for 20 minutes or until cool enough to blend
6. With a serated spoon, lift out the vegetables and place into a food blender
7. Add some of the liquid into the blender
8. Blitz into a smooth texture
9. Return blitzed veg to the rest of the liquid in the saucepan
10. Add the milk and heat thoroughly.


I’ve got soup for my lunch next week and a few spare that I’m going to put in the freezer for emergency dinners.
Bring on the Autumn weather, i’m ready! {sig}
