That’s right, vegetable soup that’s high in protein. Not something you often hear in the same sentence is it? Now let me just start by saying I’m personally not a vegetarian, in fact far from it. I’d probably prefer to lose a limb than give up meat. But that doesn’t mean I don’t like to mix up my meals and hit my protein quota from different sources . I was also conscience that many of my savoury recipes are unsuitable for veggies, so this one is for you my friends!
Thank’s to Mumma Chef I had a tonne of home grown veggies that quite honestly I had no idea what to do with and were slightly past their best. It was also a very chilly Autumn day and I was really craving something warming like soup. So I rolled up my sleeves, dug out my tin of Blend Brothers high protein sauce, and got cracking creating this delicious High Protein Chunky Vegetable Soup!
Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 40 mins
Yields: 2 Servings
150g peeled and roughly chopped squash (I used butternut but you can use any)
150g washed but not peeled potatoes (there’s lot of flavour in the skin!) chopped into chunks
50g finely chopped carrot
1 small chopped onion
1 clove of garlic finely chopped
400g chopped tinned tomatoes (that’s 1 standard tin)
250ml vegetable stock
1 tsp cooking oil of your choice (I use coconut oil)
55g Blend Brothers Tomato Chorizo Savoury Blend
1In a large pan heat the oil then throw in the onions.
2Cook them for a minute or so until they become soft, but do not colour.
3Add all of the other ingredients, other than the Blend Brothers Tomato & Chorizo High Protein Sauce to the pan, turn the heat down to moderate/low and simmer for 30 – 40 mins.
4Once the vegetables have softened, stir in the Blend Brothers Tomato & Chorizo High Protein Sauce and it’s ready to serve! Yep, it really is as simple as that!
