Student recipe: Healthy soup!

Hello Everyone!

I've been a bit rubbish at blogging to say the least but I've been ridiculously busy with uni! I haven't been eating the right foods recently. Mostly quick and easy fast foods ect & now I feel its time that I should get myself back on track, & so I thought the perfect way to start this was by making a healthy vegetable soup using all my vegetables which look as though they are about to go off and I thought I would share the recipe with you guys :)

What I used: 

2 onions
6 carrots
6 mushrooms
1/2 a courgette
3 cloves of garlic
a whole broccoli.
2 chicken stock cubes
1 vegetable stock cube
Salt & pepper to season!

Step 1: 
Chop up your vegetables! It doesn't matter how neatly you cut them as your going to blend it all up anyway! 

Step 2: 
Put a frying pan on a medium heat. Add some olive oil, and then add the onions, mushrooms and garlic - fry until soft. 

Step 3:
Whilst the onions ect are cooking fill a large pan with water and bring it to the boil then add your carrots and broccoli and boil until soft. 

Step 4: 
When everything is all nice and soft add the stock cubes to the boiling water & then blend it either using a hand blender or a food processor and then season with salt & pepper!

Step 5: 

You should end up with something like this! Serve with a warm crusty roll or anything that takes your fancy! 

This soup is so easy to make and is so good for you as well! You don't have to use the exact vegetables that I used, I just cleared out all the vegetables in my fridge which makes it a good meal for students too as its cheap and you don't end up throwing a load of food out at the end of the week! What could be better, a cheap, healthy, quick, easy meal to have on a cold winters day! 

Give it a go and let me know what you think :)
