A very basic, low calorie vegetable soup for the 5:2 diet:
This recipe is something you can vary within reason according to what is in your fridge. Obviously you need to consider whether the vegetables are high in calories (e.g. potatoes) and use with moderation when that is the case.
For the sake of convenience, I’ve made mine with a simple combination of root vegetables. But, you could add courgettes, squash, cabbage, tomatoes and even small pieces of broccoli and cauliflower. If you are using ‘softer’ vegetables add them later on in the cooking process and don’t try to seal them in butter.
