I decided I wanted a little variety in my diet after 56 days of Diet Chef food, good as that is. I have made lots of soups before but I was trying to find something low in calories, healthy and satisfying. I used my trusty Vitamix blender and a mixture of raw and lightly cooked ingredients to conjure up this vibrant green soup at only 150 calories a bowl.
I used raw spring onions, celery, courgette and spinach with lightly cooked potato and broccoli and blended it with water, an organic vegetable stock cube, some lemon juice, salt, pepper and basil. When it was steaming hot I added a drained can of chick peas and blended it again briefly. It was delicious and filling and I have some in the fridge for tomorrow too!
