Sweetcorn and Leek Soup

|
Nothing beats a homemade hearty soup that is jam packed full of good food. We are always looking for ways to try and get more veggies into our diet and soup is such a great way to do this, even for fussy little eaters who hate veggies. These flavours are a match made in heaven as the combinations are blended together to make a super rich and healthy bowl of soup. What makes this even better is the fact that it's low calorie and completely syn free, great news for those on slimming world. This is going to become my go to soup for the winter months and the fact that it only takes 25 minutes to cook makes it even better. 


To make this delicious sweetcorn and leek soup you'll need:

2 leeks, sliced and chopped
1 onion, finely chopped
300g of cooked sweetcorn
4 spring onions, chopped
900ml of chicken or vegetable stock
Salt and pepper to taste

1. Spray a saucepan with some low calorie spray. Add the onion, leeks and fry until soft not forgetting to season with some salt and pepper too. 

2. Stir in the sweetcorn and the stock made from two vegetable or chicken cubes. With the sweetcorn you can choose to use fresh, frozen or tinned as I wanted to make a quick soup for lunch I just used a tin of sweetcorn. 

3. Bring the soup to a boil. Then cover and simmer for around 10-15 minutes. 

4. If you wanted a thicker soup then scoop out half of the soup and blitz in a blender. Once smooth add this to the remaining soup and cook for a further 5 minutes so the soup can fully thicken. If you don't have a blender or want to save time you could add a thickening agent but you would need to syn accordingly. 

5. Add some chopped spring onions on the top. With this soup you can add whatever toppings you like such as chopped chicken, sausage, sauteed mushrooms or even some grated cheese (a complete game changer). This is a great soup to make if you're pushed for time but can also be changed to your liking.

  3. I really love leeks but have never thought of this combination before. It will be perfect for when leek season starts again.
