HEALTHY EATING: VEGETABLE TOMATO SOUP

healthy vegetable soup

One of my favourite meals to cook when I've been eating badly for a day or two is this simple, flavourful vegetable soup. It's versatile, requires minimal effort and preparation, and will last you a couple of lunches if you make a big pot - very handy for taking in to work or when you're too tired (lazy) to whip something up.

Base ingredients:

Canned chopped tomatoes (I try to find organic brands without citric acid)
Chopped onion/garlic/both
Lentils
Courgettes
Whatever other vegetables you have lying around! I often use celery, carrots, cauliflower and sometimes, for a more filling but ever so slightly carb-y rendition, potatoes.

Don't bother with measurements - do it all to taste. Add a small amount of water to the soup and season with black pepper, salt, herbs, garlic powder and a dash of ginger. Bring to boil, then simmer for an hour.

Sprinkle some chopped spring onions on top, add a dollop of fat free greek yoghurt and you're done. Yum.
