Tasty Tuesdays Recipe

A great way to use up those tomatoes that all seem to ripen at once!

Tomato and vegetable soup

In a medium saucepan, sauté 1 small finely chopped onion, 2 chopped sticks celery, 4 crushed cloves garlic and ¼ tsp each of basil, oregano and chilli flakes. Add 5oz quartered button mushrooms and 1 medium, sliced courgette and cook approx. 5 minutes. Stir in 1 tin butter beans, 400g tin chopped tomatoes, 8oz passata and 180ml water.  Bring to the boil, simmer to heat through.

My "Go To Greenie"

 Whatever did I do before I had my Nutri Bullet.  Really loving experimenting with whatever is in season but this has to be one of my favourites, delicious!

 Large handful spinach
Small piece of root ginger, peeled
1/2 avocado
1 small eating apple

Simply whizz the whole lot for a few seconds, as well as adding those essential fatty acids the avocado makes it really creamy!
