Souped Up Soup (2-3)

This is from Ruth Watson’s ” Fat Girl Slim”, a book for those of us who want to watch our weight without “dieting”. She also suggests optional extras for when you have already shed those extra pounds. I like to make it using the New Covent Garden Souper Green Soup when this is available, but any carton of fresh vegetable soup will do. You can use any green vegetables or mushrooms in the soup, depending on what you have in the fridge. It’s great for those days when you want to eat a relatively healthy supper but don’t really want to cook.

      Instructions
      1. Pour the soup into a large saucepan then add the stock powder and 500 ml water ( hot or cold). Heat the soup, stirring occasionally, then add the peas and french beans. Simmer, half covered, for 6-8 minutes.
      2. Uncover and add the cannellini beans. Make sure the soup is still simmering then add the spinach and keep pushing down into the liquid. As soon as the spinach has wilted stir in the parsley, check seasoning and serve. If you are not trying to lose weight you can have the parmesan and bread too.
