Quick Vegan Lunchtime Green Soup for One

I love that I can throw a lunchtime soup together quickly without the labour-intensive chopping that usually comes with making soup. I find it so boring, standing in the kitchen chopping for what seems like forever.

I didn't even have to chop an onion to make this soup! How good is that?

It was just as well too as I was home alone and making soup for just myself. We had plans for the evening so there was little point in making a big batch.

I turned to the freezer and my trusty blender for my green soup for one.

It was so fresh and spring-like, not to mention quick. 

I selected my frozen vegetables, some spring onion, herbs and spices, then threw them into my blender with some hot vegetable stock, hit the button and stood back and admired how quickly my 9400 turned it into a silky smooth delight.

I served it with some crisp crackers for some crunch. Not for dunking mind, just for crunch.

Now I say this is soup for one, but it's a greedy portion. You can definitely go back for another ladleful and you'll want to. Did I mention how fresh this tastes?

  5. As I work part-time and my girls are in school I find lunch to be one of those meals I could cook for, but who wants to just cook for one? An easy soup with frozen veg sounds like a great way to sort a hot, but easy meal! Green is my favorite color so it goes without saying that I love the color too!!

  6. Ooh wow, that really is a green soup isn't it? It looks beautiful. My 3 year old is obsessed with broccoli, she loves it. And hates soup. I might get her to make this with me so she can see how much broccoli goes in and see if we can get over her soup issues.x

    1. Yes it's definitely green. It's great your little one loves broccoli, Cooper has totally gone of it, so gets his share in soup;. Sigh!

  7. Ooo I love soups like this! I did one the other day with half a tin of tomatoes and some spices. Hey presto tomato soup haha!
    Gonna give this recipe a cheeky bookmark :) I almost always have the ingredients to hand so having another 'insta-soup' to use them in when I just need something quick, easy and hot will be a total win. Thanks for sharing it :)
