Welcome to my Slimming World Super Speed Soup in the soup maker. A delicious filling soup full of Slimming World speed foods and not a Syn in sight. Warm yourself up and serve this with some crusty bread or have it as it is.
This brings me back (I know again) to my mum and her Slimming World speed soup. She was often on Slimming World and would want a quick with a quick weight loss and out would come a scruffy piece of paper with a Slimming World speed soup recipe.
It involved a massive old fashioned pan on the hob all day and a kitchen that stunk of tomatoes and she would then spend days on her soup.
My Dad would always laugh or complain that the nasty speed soup was out and about and that it would give her wind and it would turn into a joke.
I dread to think how much of it should we eat over a few days and we were all glad when it was gone.
But back then in the early 90’s you didn’t have the likes of Pinterest for sharing great recipes and the imagination from Slimming World members was rather limited.
It wasn’t anything what it is like now 2 decades later.
But one thing that has stayed there is the Slimming World speed soup. The idea behind it is that you fill it to bursting with speed foods and then the more you eat the more weight you lose. Though I have found that just eating it to replace your lunch for a few weeks can have an amazing effect on your weight loss too.
So this is my go to Slimming World Speed Soup. Soup that I personally ate during my first week back on Slimming World and an excellent chance to kick start my weight loss in the right direction.
You could also turn this into your own DIY soup that you alter with the ingredients that you have in or that are cheapest or in season at the time. Just finish it each time with tinned tomatoes and seasoning and you have it cracked.
Plus it is so much easier to do in the soup maker. I would be lost without mine and a blender too for when I am doing it in big batches.#SlimmingWorld Super #SpeedSoup In The Soup Maker #Recipe via recipe_thisClick To Tweet
- Clean the leek.
- Deseed the peppers. Peel the onion and carrots.
- Chop the tomatoes, onion, carrots, pepper and leek.
- Throw everything into the soup maker including the vegetables, the seasoning and the stock cubes. Add to it 200ml of water and set on the 28 minute chunky soup setting.
- Place the ingredients into a blender along with the tinned tomatoes and blend until smooth.
If you like heat then add plenty. The best thing ever for your metabolism is chilli. I used just ½ a teaspoon of chilli and the same again in cayenne pepper. But if you don’t like spice then just leave it out.
Because of the size of my soup maker I do 2 rounds of soup. Depending on what you are using these times might alter. I also found that it worked best if the tinned tomatoes were added last.
This soup is just full of super speed vegetables for weight loss. For the best results avoid non-vegetables such as lentils, beans etc as even though they will give you results they wont be as good. I know this because I have tested it with and without them.
Also avoid non-speed vegetables such as parsnips and potatoes and for the creamy texture in your soup opt for butternut squash instead.
