Spicy pepper and tomato soup: A Slimming World syn free recipe
Lunches for me of late are soup. Lets face it, until it's warm enough for salad - soup is pretty much the standard. I tend to rotate between favourites, of late my minestrone soup has been my go to. This week I fancied a change. Lacking much in the way of inspiration I remembered something I'd seen on our Slimming World group and decided to work with that as a starting point. The poster said hers was quick and easy and my variation really was too. The best part of it is that it's all storecupboard ingredients, so it's an easy one to have the ingredients for on hand, just in case you're in need of something quick, easy and syn free.
Spicy Pepper and tomato soup - syn free, dairy free, soya free, egg free
1 jar Peppadew peppers or similar - I used the hot piquant ones as I like a bit of spice, but if you're not a fan of heat, why not have the sweet ones
1 tin chopped tomatoes
1 litre chicken stock
1 tin cannelini beans
Drain the peppers, and pop the lot in a pan
Add the tin of tomatoes
Add the chicken stock
Bring to the boil and simmer for 20 minutes
Take off the heat and cool, before blitzing to a consistency you're happy with
Add the drained cannelini beans, warm through before serving
If you're doing Slimming World then you could use your Healthy Extra B to have wholemeal bread with it. I tend to use my Healthy Extra B for oats so just have it by itself. M has it with my homemade 50:50 wholemeal.
