wp-1480372027858.jpg

If it’s green it’s either mouldy or good for you, right? πŸ˜‰ Well this is good for you soΒ no need to worry πŸ˜‰ *giggle* πŸ˜€

I love soups in the Winter but I find that whenever I buy shop bought ones, they are always laden with either cream or potato which for the health conscious among us,Β are not great ingredients. Potato for most people is ok in small doses but it really doesn’t agree with me unless it’s sweet potato. So if I want a nice warming bowl of soup, I have to make my own. And it’s soo easy, there’s really no reason not to. It also means there aren’t any additives or nasty preservatives in it and it’s as fresh as you can getΒ πŸ˜€

Made with an abundance (I can always hear David Attenborough’s voice when I say ‘abundance’ and feel like it should be followed with something about wildlife…just me? πŸ˜‰ ) of veggies and goodness, this soup is definitely a winner for the cold Winter months πŸ™‚

Ingredients for 2 ppl

  • Gammon – pre-cooked x 1 cup
  • Spinach x 2 cups
  • Peas x 1 cup
