If you have been on Slimming World for a while, no doubt you have heard all about tomato speed soup, the soup that resembles Heinz tomato soup and if you haven’t been on Slimming World for long, no doubt you will see it soon. If you want to find out about it now, just search the internet for ‘Slimming World Speed Tomato Soup’ and you’ll find lots of links to take a look at!
This is my variation on the recipe, as although I do find it vaguely resembles Heinz soup, the pickled onion just adds too much of an acidic vinegary taste for my liking. So a while ago I tried leaving out the pickled onion and adding my chilli spices and herbs to it instead and voila one of my favourite easy lunches was born!
So not only does this version contains the majority of the speed food ingredients in the original recipe but it also contains chilli and spices like chilli are thought to raise metabolism by up to 50 percent for up to three hours after eating, due to increasing your heart rate! Can’t be bad!
1 carton of pasatta
1 tin of carrots, drained
1 tin of baked beans
1 chicken stock cube
1 pint of water
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt or garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon of chilli powder
1 teaspoon of cumin powder
1 teaspoon of dried oregano
Place all ingredients in a heavy bottomed pan – don’t worry if at this stage it looks pretty disgusting, lol – take a hand blender and blend all the ingredients together until smooth and thick. Heat as much as is required.
It really is very tasty, even my two year old quite likes it when she’s in the mood, lol!
