Simple Fat Free Spinach Soup

Simple Fat Free Spinach Soup, diet, healthy, nutritioius, 5.2 diet, weight watchers, slimming, iron, soupmaker

Sometimes you know you have been over indulging in the wrong types of food and you just want to put the brakes on and treat your body to something really nutritious, tasty and simple. So with this in mind I made this Simple Fat Free Spinach Soup the other day. I thought I’d try making a soup without any fat to see if it was possible to make something tasty without it. Hubby and I sat down to a couple of bowls of my soup over lunch and he didn’t even realise there wasn’t any butter or oil in it and really enjoyed it. A really useful thing I learned in Home-Economics at school was to always eat iron rich leafy vegetables with something rich in vitamin C like a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice to allow the body to absorb more iron. There’s a long winded scientific explanation but I think that will suffice! So for a really healthy lunch squeeze yourself a couple of oranges and revel in your saintliness!

So whether you’re on a diet, a vegan or just want to treat your body to a nutrient packed lunch I’d urge you to try this soup for yourself. Feeling good often starts from the inside!

Ingredients
  • 1 Onion, roughly chopped

As this seasonal vegan soup was made with just over half a bag of Baby Spinach which I bought in Home Bargains for 99p I am entering it into the following challenges:

    I love spinach, so another recipe I must try!

  14. Dom

    I hear you!… soup is the perfect antidote to a binge! Yours looks so good, so smooth and I love how spinach makes everything so creamy!

    1. Camilla

      Thanks yes Dom, too many samples of treats arrive through the post so sometimes you just need a bit of a detox:-)

  15. Petra

    Sounds like a quite healthy recipe! I love spinach in soups and one of my favourite soups is spinach and chickpea soup with garlicky yoghurt sauce.
    So true about iron and vitamin c! For this reason I tend to put some lemon juice in my soups.

  16. Laura@howtocookgoodfood

    I love spinach soup and it loads of it from now on as we have bags of spinach from the allotment. Soups feature often as do curries!

    1. Camilla

      How lucky you are to have a supply of fresh spinach Laura:-)

  17. Elizabeth

    Ooh this sounds lovely! The potatoes will give it a gorgeous creaminess too. Yum!

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Elizabeth:-)

  18. The hungry mum

    Love this soup idea. Am always looking for low cal meals on my fast days and this looks just the ticket.

    1. Camilla

      Glad to be of inspiration:-)

  19. Emma @ Supper in the Suburbs

    This sounds delicious! Very virtuous indeed. After a take away or two I always have cravings for rich leafy greens so this recipe is ideal. Thanks!

    1. Camilla

      Fab, it’s good to have some “good” dishes to fall back on to:-)

  20. Ursula Hunt

    Spinach is so good for you but other than steaming i didn’t know what to do with it so thank you for this idea

    1. Camilla

      Enjoy Ursula:-)

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Lucy:-)

  23. Sarah James

  24. Bintu @ Recipes From A Pantry

    This would be great for summer lunches when my spinach is out in force.

      So many spinach growers, I feel left out! Just never had much luck with growing veggies!

  25. Keep Calm and Fanny On

    looks super healthy and super tasty, I love spinach! Looks like it would be great chilled too?

    1. Camilla

      Thanks, not sure about the chilled but could work!
