I just spotted this and, whilst I would not use anything other than butter, the manufacturer's site would seem to be a good resource - not only for soups I might add.

I'll try that again!

Looks good, TA, and reminds me that I haven't made Leek & Potato soup for ages......I have plenty of potatoes and carrots, and a couple of leeks that need using up pronto, so guess what I'll be having for supper later on!

Thank you for that.

learning to love veg…..except celery :-O

Thanks for the link, TA.  I made leek and potato soup the other day but have my own way of making it creamy without increasing the fat content.  I use half stock and half skimmed milk as the liquid part of the soup.  Once the veg are cooked I cool the soup slightly then stir in a good quantity of skimmed milk powder slaked in water.  May not be everyone's choice but we like it.  I shall look at the Flora site for further ideas.

Glad to be of help Sue.  Thanks for you feedback Iris, it is always good to have different ideas.  I went shopping yesterday but completely failed to buy any veg at all! roll_eyes

I'll try that again!

I am not fond of sweet potato but this soup looks so pretty I had to share it.

I'll try that again!

Will be making a lot of soup now the weather is cooler, I spent the other morning on the slimming world site printing off all the soup recipes.

Never give up Tomorrow is another day.

I recon Skimmed Milk, is the handiest thing in my Cupboard, I use it for Yogurt, Bread, and have used it in Soup to add creaminess, and of course it means you are never without that essential Cuppalaugh
