What are the benefits of making a soup with lemons?
- It’s a great way to cut down on salt intake. There are some people that will actually add lemon juice to their recipes and soups over adding salt.
- Lemon is an appetite stimulant, so it will make all the other vegetables in this soup even more enjoyable! Perfect for those children who aren’t so keen on veggies.
- Lemons contain a high amount of vitamin C, soluble fiber, and plant compounds that give them a number of health benefits. Lemons may aid weight loss and reduce your risk of heart disease, anemia, kidney stones, digestive issues, and cancer.
Looking to take this soup to work?
My dad actually recommended this product after he started his weight loss journey. He is obsessed with homemade soup (and his soup maker may I add..) and he was desperate to take soup to work. His company is tight and wouldn’t fork out for a microwave so he invested in this awesome soup thermos. It will keep food hot for up to 6 hours! Perfect for soup, porridge, curry etc.

- Spritz a pan with low cal cooking spray (such as Frylight) and throw in onion, carrot and celery. Cook over a medium heat for a few minutes.

- Add courgette and rice. Pour over the stock and extra water. Stir well and cover with a lid. Bring to the boil for 1 minute.
- Reduce to a simmer and allow to cook for approx 25 – 30 minutes or until the rice is light and fluffy and the vegetables are soft.
