Slimming World Sprout Soup – Syn Free
Another one of those recipes that’s a lot better than you think
This recipe seemed to pop up out of nowhere in my Facebook news feed. I’d never heard of sprout soup before and, to be honest, I probably would have felt a little ill at the idea. Suddenly, about 5 group members had shared the Pinterest image with the recipe on it. Next thing, everyone at group was talking about it. A bit like the mushy pea curry recipe, is one of those things where you probably have to try it on faith before dismissing it completely. It’s one of those recipes that sounds absolutely hideous. I love sprouts, like I would have them with just about every meal but, this sounded quite disgusting at first.
However, I still gave it a try and, it’s actually surprising. I wouldn’t say it was the nicest soup in the world but, I’ve definitely had far, far worse. As the main ingredient is sprouts, it’s totally loaded with speed food too. Just prepare yourself as you may be sleeping on the sofa afterwards. Sprouts are also quite well known for bringing on a little flatulence!
This recipe is also super-easy to make. Simply boil, soften, blitz and serve. 25 minutes is all you need to prepare, cook and serve this one.
- 300 g Brussel Sprouts
- 1 Small Onion chopped
- 750 ml Vegetable Stock
- 1 tbsp Cottage Cheese I actually use a small-medium sized potato instead of the cottage cheese
Boil the onion, sprouts (and potato if you're using one) in the vegetable stock until soft, around 20 minutes.
Add the cottage cheese if you're using it.
Pour the whole lot into a food processor and blitz until completely smooth.
Serve with a sprinkling of salt and pepper to taste.
