Today’s soup recipe is inspired by my recent visit to the BBC Good Food Show where one may say I stalked Lorraine Pascale all morning and watched her Soothing Sag Aloo Soup demonstration from her latest cookbook, Eating Well Made Easy. (Apparently she was inspired by Pret a Manger). And what I didn’t realise, until that show, was that turmeric is an anti-inflammatory and she eats it almost every day in some form. There, I hope you learnt something new too. I had already made and loved her super immune boosting soup, so how could I not give this a go? The ingredients are pretty much store cupboard essentials too and it’s extremely easy and now, I am presenting to you a almost fat free soup maker friendly version. *Side Note: I have made a few adjustments to suit what I had in, so you will need to check the book for her exact ingredients and cannot find them online anywhere to share.
Recipe – SERVES 4
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp turmeric
1 large onion, diced
2cm piece of ginger, peeled & grated
1 garlic clove, minced
1 green chilli, deseeded & chopped
1 medium potato, peeled & diced
400g tin of chopped tomatoes
100g shredded cabbage or spinach
400g tin of chickpeas, drained
2 chicken stockpots or 3 stockcubes

- In a large frying pan with frylight, toast the spices on medium to low heat until you hear crackling (approx 2-3 minutes)
- Spray the pan with frylight again and add the onions, garlic, chilli and ginger and saute until the onions have softened, stirring often.
- Now transfer to the Soup Maker and add the rest of the ingredients, setting to chunky (Note: If using spinach, stir in at the end once it has finished cooking). If using a pan, Lorraine recommends to bring to the boil and simmer for 15-20 minutes.
So I may have gobbled it all up on my own in one day, it was that lovely and filling, but when something is pure health, I don’t think about portion sizes and just eat until I’m full.
