Daily Slimming World Recipe: High-Energy 12 Vegetable Super Soup


Soup is one of my favorite things to eat for lunch, so I’m always on the lookout for easy but filling recipes I can use with the Slimming World plan. I’m also a big fan of freezing leftovers for later, so I love recipes that make more than one serving of food.

This delicious vegetable soup recipe fits all of my criteria: it works with the Slimming World plan, it’s easy to make, and this recipe makes a good-sized portion of soup. Also, the 12 Vegetable Soup contains hearty ingredients like beans and lentils, so you’ll definitely feel satisfied after you eat this.

I also love that you can customize this recipe to your needs. You can use vegetable broth and make this a completely vegetarian meal, but it works just as well with chicken or beef broth. You can also add whatever herbs you personally prefer, and season it with salt and pepper to taste.
