Daily Slimming World Recipe: Easy Spicy Butternut Squash and Sweet Potato Soup

Soup is a favorite dish of mine, because it’s very easy to make and usually you end up with a lot of leftovers. Plus, it’s fairly easy to make a soup that’s either very low in syns for the Slimming World diet, or totally syn free.
"slimming world sweet potatoes"This soup is syn free, and combines flavors in kind of an interesting way. The soup is made with butternut squash and sweet potatoes, but instead of seasoning it with cinnamon and nutmeg, you add a green chili pepper to the recipe. The sweetness of the butternut squash and the spiciness of the green chili makes for a very interesting and good combination.

Also, you can make this Slimming World soup on the stovetop or use your slow cooker, depending on what you feel like doing that day. I prefer to use the slow cooker because then you can just chop everything, throw it in the slow cooker, and forget about it for a few hours.

Ingredients:

2 Vegetable Stock Cubes
3 Liters of Water
2 Sweet Potatoes
1 Butternut Squash
1 Stick of Celery
1 Onion
1 Green Chili Pepper
Large Soup Pot or Slow Cooker

Directions:

1. Peel and chop butternut squash and sweet potatoes into small chunks.
2. Peel and dice the onion.
3. Chop the celery stick into small pieces.
4. Dice the green chili pepper. If you want your soup spicy, leave the seeds. If not, scrape the seeds off of the pepper.
5. Combine all ingredients into either a large soup pot or your slow cooker.
6. If cooking in the soup pot, put the pot on the stove and bring the mixture to a boil. Then, reduce to a simmer and cook for about an hour.
7. If you’re using your slow cooker, cook on high for 6 hours.
8. After the soup is done cooking, you can use a hand blender to blend the soup up in the pot/slow cooker. Or, put part of the mixture into a blender and blend that way.

Serve this Slimming World recipe on it’s own, or perhaps with a small salad or a chicken breast. Then, throw the leftovers in the freezer for another night when you don’t feel like cooking.
