No point Veggie Soup - 0 Points

Ingredients: 1 Leek - Chopped
1 Onion - Diced
2 Carrots - Diced
2 Garlic Cloves - Chopped
3 Tomatoes - Chopped and skin removed (to do this, make a little slit on the tomato and place in a bowl of boiling water and cover. After a couple of minutes the skin will just peel away)
Tsp Thyme
1 Spray of Calorie Controlled oil
2 Pints of Water


  1. Heat a large pot on a medium heat and add the onion - cook for five mins (if the onion starts sticking to the bottom of the pot, add a drop of water
  2. Add the garlic and cook for two mins
  3. Add the leek and cook for a further five mins, until the onion and leek are getting nice and soft
  4. Add the carrot, chopped tomato, thyme, pepper and salt and mix for about two mins
  5. Add the water and bring to a boil, then reduce to a medium heat until the carrots are soft
  6. Allow to cool and blitz in a blender till smooth.
This is a great little soup. It's filling and gives you some of your five a day and you can fill up on it throughout the day without having to worry about using up your points. Have a cup of it while preparing dinner or before going out for dinner. It will help eat less! Plus in the winter its a lovely comforting meal!
