I absolutely love soup, so much so that I am the proud owner of a soup machine. Though, it wasn’t always like this. I remember when I first made soup about twenty years ago it just looked like this red mush and tasted just as bad.
I then enjoyed my soup out of a can for many years and eventually got addicted to making healthy soups for both summer and winter.
There is cream of broccoli that I adore and is super cheap to make, then there is butternut squash and leek and wow this is like luxury soup but without the price tag, then there is the trusted tomato.
Either way they are all traditional and also fat burning foods at the same time. Talk about food heaven!
Without me waffling on anymore here it is:
10 Must Try Fat Burning Soup Recipes:
I remember the first time I enjoyed broccoli soup and it was all thanks to the local cash and carry. My parents had a Makro card and there was some lovely luxury broccoli soup that all the restaurants used.
I could never get enough of it. But I doubt it was as healthy as this one!
Introducing you to my spicy fat burning veggie soup. I love vegetable soup and this is one of my favourites and comes with a blast of heat to give it that little bit extra. This is also very good for getting in your “five a day” while you are on your diet.
Now onto number 3 and a super low calorie soup for you. I just love tomatoes but for many people unless you have a LOT of salt they can be really boring and bland. This recipe though, includes lots of red pepper and gives it a beautiful sweet flavour.
I love cauliflower and it wasn’t until I was experimenting recently that I actually put it into a soup. And I am so glad that I did. It really brings the cauliflower alive and gives it a whole new use.
Now if you have not tried this, then you must. Out of all the soups we make its by far the most popular in our household.
It is like Leek & Potato Soup BUT……much creamier, better for you and its like a fabulous invention that you could serve at a dinner party!
Out of these 10 recipes it is our favourite, so give it a whirl.
Celery is known as a negative food but not in this recipe J this is because it takes more effort to eat it, than it does to the calories that are actually in it. Burt because this is blended I doubt the same applies.
Having said that, there is still calories burned cooking it and it is also a super low calorie food!
So get stuck in 🙂
I live in Portugal and eating and drinking is very much the Mediterranean way of life. It’s all about beautiful vegetables, lots of carbs and plenty of wine. This is my take on the traditional local vegetable soup and it tastes delicious and will have you wanting to go back for more.
I couldn’t resist sneaking in a bit of French into this list with the trusted onion soup. I love onion soup and it reminds me of holidays in France as a teenager.
This is not for everyone (especially if you are not that keen on onions) but it gives you a fantastic health kick and tastes rather good too!
I love courgettes and growing up in England it was actually something I rarely had. It was more or less just reserved for cheese sauces; yet living in Portugal I eat it a lot more.
Until I was experimenting with it, I had never considered putting it into a soup. Especially, when you consider how watery courgettes actually are. But this is something you don’t knock until you’ve tried it!
And finally the last of the bunch goes to the pea soup! I have always loved pea soup and it’s very good on the wallet too. So if you’re looking for a low cost way of having a healthy soup then this is it!
