Nic's Black Bean & Sweet Potato Soup
This recipe by Nic’s Nutrition is so tasty and healthy.
Talking about her soup, Nic said: “One of the first recipes that I made in my SoupChef…
Last week Drew & Cole asked me to try out their new soup maker called Soup Chef. I of course jumped at the chance as I love soup and anything that makes meal prep quicker and easier is right up my street!
Drew & Cole’s Soup Chef allows you to enjoy a delicious bowl of hot and nutritious homemade soup in under 30 minutes; you simply add your chopped ingredients (such as vegetables and beans), along with some stock, and select the smooth or chunky settings which then cook your soup in either 19 or 25 minutes respectively. In addition to these settings, the Sauté Function allows you to sauté ingredients like onions prior to cooking to maximise flavour.
Soups are a great way of getting more vegetables into your diet and because of the way that they are cooked, more of the nutrients are preserved. I love making soup at home as you know exactly what’s going into it and you can omit any ingredients that you either don’t like or may be intolerant or allergic to. Soup Chef doesn’t just make soups though, you can make sauces, dahls and more; just check out the Drew & Cole recipe page for inspiration!
I love my Soup Chef as it not only looks great but it saves me so much time and hassle, as well as washing up! You literally just chop, set and go! It’s ideal for people living a busy lifestyle who want to be able to prepare a quick and easy meal that the whole family can enjoy, and the Keep Warm setting keeps the soup warm for 2 hours – genius!
One of the first recipes that I made in my SoupChef was my Healthy Sweet Potato & Black Bean Soup; it’s bursting with vitamins, minerals, protein, fibre and slow release carbohydrate (energy).. scroll down for the recipe!
This soup recipe makes 3-4 portions (served with some crusty bread!) and provides around 180 calories, 34g carbs, 9g protein and 1g fat per serving.
Do let me know if you make it too!
