I’ve moved on from having 49568492044 risotto recipes and moved onto soup recipes. I love soup. It’s been one of the big things that’s helped me lose over 23lbs over the last year. Yes 23. Apparently that is equavilent to the amount of pizza an average American eats in a year.

Just to clarify

The amount of pizza an American eats in a year!

I’ve been relying on soup because it’s warm, homey and you can make 45639594 different variations. Today is a spicy cauliflower and carrot soup. Enjoy

Slow-cooked Cauliflower and Carrot Soup

Put in Your Trolley

650grms of cauliflower

500grms of carrots

500grms of potato (peeled and chopped.)

1L of stock (chicken or vegetable are best.)

800grms of tomatoes

200grms of onion

2tbsp of smoked paprika, hot chili pepper and curry powder

2 birds eye chili’s to your taste.

^ And that’s it!

Step One

Chop up everything. The potatoes, the cauliflower, the onion. Try and keep them as closely matched in size as possible. (Although it does get blended at the end.)

Step Two

Fry the onions and chili until they have browned a little. They add all the spices and fry for another minute. Add all the vegetables and coat with the spices. Then add to the slow cooker. Click on high.

Step Three

Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Leave for as long as you can. You could do this in a big pan but I like how the house smells of the soup. (Lol.)

Step Four

Blend once fully cooked. Spoon into bowls and serve with tzatziki and white sour dough bread. Waitrose do the best one.

Numbers if you’re bothered

This made 3.4kg of soup and about 8 portions that work out at 200 calories a portion. Serve with a good hunk of bread and you’re sitting pretty at 400ish. Perfect.
