Are tasty, healthy, simple to make and relati- vely cheap to buy.
Soup can be enjoyed at different times; as a delicious starter, hearty main course, exciting finale or as a quick snack.
With only one basic recipe, it’s possible to create variation and make your own favourite by simply adding or taking away based on preference and taste. Ideally, it is best to make it yourself so that you can maintain control of the ingredients and avoid unneces- sary additives.
A good tip is to accompany it with a side salad instead of bread.
In addition, soup is an excellent way to remain satisfied without over indulging on those occasions when tradition offers the opportunity to eat large amounts. However, for those of you who simply don’t have time to cook your own soup there are now Healt- hyCo’s 100% natural soups – without additi- ves, just like grandma’s traditional recipes!
