The next in our WINTER SURVIVAL KIT is our Slimtone Soup which makes a versatile hot meal in this cold weather. Simply simmer a selection of vegetables i.e carrots, swede, leeks, onions, butternut squash, etc in vegetable stock until cooked. Blitz a small portion with hand held blender to thicken and return to saucepan. Garnish with parsley and you will have a tasty free soup to start a meal or take to work in a flask. Alternatively, a can of thick beef and vegetable soup can be made into a tasty meal by thickening with gravy granules and served as a casserole with lots of green vegetables, or add curry powder and serve with boiled rice. Look out for more ideas tomorrow.
