Hairy Bikers BIG SOUP

Hairy Bikers BIG SOUP

A bowl of home-made hairy bikers soup can help you succeed on your diet challenge. The Hairy Bikers soup ‘Big Soup’  is just 157 calories per portion – and we think that’s just soup-er!

The recipe for this tasty broth can be found in Si and Dave’s new book …but as a special treat it’s available JUST FOR YOU right here:

Hairy Biker Dave Myers says: “Making a big pan of soup and keeping it in the fridge is a good idea … and it’s a whole lot tastier than packet and tinned soups.

“We have a scrummy recipe in our diet book, included below, and if we felt in need of a snack we grab a cup of soup.

As the evenings are just starting to turn a little cooler I really needed something hearty and warming, yet something healthy too. I was not prepared to sacrifice flavour! I turned to The Hairy Dieter’s “Big Soup” recipe. They describe it as “A big soup to make you smaller’. I really like the Hairy Bikers soup :-).

Ingredients wise, there is not too much to get to make this soup.

Basically it is just some good or decent stock, plenty of fresh vegetables, and some quality ChorizoA big soup to make you smaller, this is a tasty wholesome lunch on a cold day.

Hairy Bikers Soup Cooking Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large non-stick saucepan or a big flameproof casserole dish.
  2. Add the onion and garlic and fry gently for five minutes until softened but not coloured, stirring often.
  3. While the onion is frying, peel the carrots and slice them into rough, 1.5cm chunks.
  4. Trim the green beans and cut them into pieces about 3cm long.
  5. Add the chorizo, paprika and carrots to the pan with the sliced onion and cook over a low heat for two minutes, stirring until the chorizo begins to release its fat. Season with salt and lots of black pepper.
  6. Tip the tomatoes into the same pan, add the stock and sugar, then turn the heat up to medium.
  7. Bring the liquid to the boil. Reduce the heat slightly and leave the soup to simmer for 12 minutes.
  8. Add the canned and fresh beans and the kale and bring it back to a gentle simmer.
  9. Cook for 10 minutes until all the vegetables are just tender, adding a little extra water if the soup is looking too thick.
  10. Season the soup with salt and black pepper and serve in deep bowls.
  11. Enjoy!

Add a tablespoon of half-fat crème fraiche and a sprinkling of paprika for a guilt free garnish that adds no more than 25 calories per portion to the Hairy Bikers soup …
