Soup---a healthy afternoon 'pick me up.' Sheffield Soup maker.

This is a short blog because when one gets home, tired but not quite ready to cook dinner and just a tad hungry, I could eat an ice cream or some biscuits but in light of the need to get as many vitamins and minerals into my system, post Bariatric surgery, I often crave a healthy soup. What better on a windy cold afternoon after walking the crazy dog-----so----out comes the soup maker and in goes some 'cut up veggies (carrots, cauliflower, celery, and whatever is in the chill box on the fridge. I chuck in a rinsed can of chickpeas and a dash or curry powder and slat. Turn the soup maker on (oops---don't forget to top up the mixture with some water or stock.) and let it cook. The beep sounds 20 minutes later and I add some low fat cream cheese and blend. Wow---what a great taste and I know its all good for me!
