I adore my ‘Lose a Kilo Soup‘.

You see, I’m not a fan of diets. In my opinion, they just don’t work. Plus I really like to eat, and it has to be tasty and delicious.

I make huge batches of this soup and freeze it during the colder months. Not only is it full of iron, I’ve also discovered it has another benefit – I always lose weight!  Of course I’ll replace a meal with this soup, but I know it is healthy, hearty and tasty.

I prefer mine unblended because I like the chunks – but you can blend it up if you wish! For added protein, add a few slices of poached chicken breast!

Method

  1. Cut the broccoli into florets and slice the cabbage.

  2. Thinly slice the onion and the carrot and mince the garlic clove.

  3. Heat oil spray in a pan and sweat onion, carrot and garlic for ten minutes until soft and sweet.

  4. Add broccoli, spinach, cabbage and chicken stock.

  5. Bring to a simmer then stir in the lentils.

  6. Simmer for 25 minutes or until the lentils are tender, then season well.

  7. For a blended, smooth soup - Pour into a food processor. Blend until smooth then serve.

  8. For a chunky, unblended soup - serve it up as is!
