Pointless Soup

Pointless soup?! Well only in the Weight Watchers sense :) This soup has no points and makes a great filler for no cost to my diet. :D

Ingredients :

2 beef stock cubes
1 litre water
1 tsp curry powder
1/4 tsp parsley
1/4 tsp thyme
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 onion
3 cloves garlic
2 carrots
2 large slices turnip
2 heads baby cauliflower
2 heads baby broccoli

Method :

01. Chop and weigh out all ingredients.

02. Fry the onion on a medium heat until softened. (fried in spray oil)

03. Add garlic and fry for 1 min.

04. Add in rest of chopped veg and fry for 1 min.

05. Add in spices, herbs, salt and pepper.

06. Add in stock.

07. Simmer for 20 mins, until vegetables have softened.

08. Serve piping hot, with some brown bread.

Variations :

This is just a base soup really, you can use different stocks, different vegetables, add meat or noodles for a more substantial meal, some crunchy croutons for a bit of bite, some cream for a richer taste, or even just blend it for a smooth soup.
