We all know that eating vegetables is good for us and sometimes it can seem quite tricky to get the 5 day into our daily diet.
Eating salads and soups is a really great way to increase our vegetable consumption. And making them yourself is even better, you then know exactly how much sugar and salt is added.
I know salt gets a lot of bad press, and I also believe a little salt can enhance the flavours. The best thing is always to taste as you go, you can easily add more but you can't take it out!
I hope you enjoy this delicious summer soup. Let me know what you think. And remember to tag me on Instagram with your pics @chezbeccy and use the hashtag #chezbeccylife
