Vegetable Soup
The Ingredients

1 tablespoon rapeseed or olive oil (15g)
1 onion, finely chopped (150g)
2 carrots, peeled and finely chopped (200g)
1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed (5g)
1 large potato, peeled and diced (300g)
300g cauliflower or broccoli, finely chopped
100g frozen edamame beans
800ml vegetable stock (made from reduced salt stock cube)
100ml low fat milk (1.5% fat)
4 teaspoon sunflower seeds (20g)
4 slices brown bread (each about 36g) (such as McCambridge)
20g butter, at room temperature
Freshly ground black pepper
Chopped fresh chives, to garnish (optional)

The Method

Heat a non-stick pan over a medium to high heat. Add the oil and then add the onion, carrots, garlic, potato and cauliflower or broccoli. Saute for 3-4 minutes until softened and beginning to pick up a bit of colour. Season with pepper and add the edamame beans.

Pour the stock into the vegetable mixture and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for about 15 minutes until the vegetables are tender. Stir in the milk and sunflower seeds and then blitz with a hand-held blender until smooth or leave with a bit of texture.

Ladle the soup into bowls and season with pepper, then garnish with chives, if using. Spread the brown bread with the butter and arrange on plates alongside to serve.
