As the cold nights draw in, there's nothing better than sitting down to a bowl of hearty, steaming soup. An easy way of getting a few portions of vegetables into your daily diet, a good soup can be extremely filling and nutritious. Any leftovers can be put in a flask to make a quick, easy, low cal lunch.
Try our three great soups:
Potatoes make a great base for soups since they boil down to make a thick and creamy consistency. Add a handful of chopped leeks, and a sprinkling of herbs and seasoning and you've got a simple, quick to make "old favourite" (4.1g fat, 160 kcal per serving).
Bright, colourful and warming. This ginger carrot soup recipe is particularly low in fat and calories - under 80 kcal per serving - which means you can enjoy it with a lovely chunk of wholemeal bread! (4.7g fat, 79 kcal per serving).
Noodles in soup is one of my personal favourites. They're so simple to add, but make our classic chicken soup so much more interesting! (1.7g fat, 130 kcal per serving).
