I actually like eating vegetarian meals and would eat more but my boyfriend is a typical carnivore in that he moans if there is no meat on his plate! the only non meat meal I can make that he will eat and not complain about is a vegetable soup.
So I am sharing an ultra healthy and frugal recipe! My soup recipe is actually my ‘whatever veg is left in my fridge drawer’ flavour!! Plus it is cooked in the slow cooker which makes it VERY easy to make.
I used the following vegetables (which was what I had in my fridge & cupboard)
1 large potato
1 bunch of asparagus
1/2 sweet potato
1 chunk of butternut squash
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
1 1/2 – 2 pint of vegetable (or chicken) stock
& black pepper for seasoning
Roughly chop all of the veg and place into the slow cooker
Add the stock, tomato & seasoning
Put the slow cooker on the lowest setting and leave to simmer either over night or while you are out to work or all day while you look after the kids
Then once the veg is cooked and you can easily insert knife switch the slow cooker off
Put the veg mixture into a blender and whizz until smooth
Taste to see if you need any further seasoning and then serve and enjoy
This will generously serve 4 adults and I find it makes tasty baby food aswell!!
