If you're now looking at getting a good start on the Weightwatchers diet, or if your resolution is to eat more meat-free/more vegetables/more healthily, you can't go far wrong with this recipe. I don't know about you but I'm ready to return to propoints and counting - I have a couple of Christmas pounds that need shifting. Okay, okay, maybe three.
This is filled with vegetables that are in season at the moment and I calculate (minus sriracha which isn't available there) it comes to 71p a serving on the Sainsburys website (it will be even less if you buy larger packs of vegetables). Not too shabby.
Stats: - 5 servings, 2 propoints each, 129 kcal with 0.1g of saturated fat.
Frylight or similar
2 parsnips, peeled and cut into bitesize cubes
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into bitesize cubes
2 leeks, sliced
1 red onion, diced
2 carrots, peeled and diced
1 litre hot water
1 teaspoon cumin
Sriracha, to taste
Mist a large pan with Frylight and put all of the vegetables in. Cook on a medium heat for five minutes, stirring regularly to prevent sticking.
Add the water, cover and cook for a further fifteen minutes, until the vegetables have all softened. Keep an eye - if the soup is on too high a heat, the water will disappear...
Add the cumin to the pan and cook for a further five minutes.
Blend well. Swirl the sriracha into the top of each serving (means that you can omit for littlies). As you can see, I still need to work on my swirling.
