Now this soup is not going to win any awards in the “looks” department but what this green soup lacks in aesthetics, it sure makes up for in nutrition and taste. Surprised? Don’t be. I’ve got it down to a tee.
Like I said the other day, you need to take advantage of the fact that vegetables can be prepared using a variety of methods.
Soup is one of them. Soups used to be somewhat complicated to prepare. Heat this up. heat that up, pour into a bowl and blend with a hand-held blender or pour into a regular blender to liquidize the cooked ingredients.
Not anymore, folks.
Get a soup maker. A soup maker does all of those steps for you. It makes life so much easier. It will get you making soups more and more. It got me.
Having soups means you don’t have to struggle with the fruit and vegg recommendations of 5 portions a day. Whack your vegg into your soup maker and off you go.
There are many soup makers on the market but this is the one I use. Available both on Amazon.co.uk and in the US on Amazon.com

How to make the mackerel infused broccoli coriander soup
>> Slice up your red onions, garlic and broccoli. You just need to chop up the broccoli florets into half chunks. No hard work needed.
>> Slice up your filleted smoked mackerel into small pieces too.
>> Chuck in your chopped up broccoli, red onion, garlic into the soup maker jar.
>> Add the bunch of coriander. You may chop it up but it is not absolutely necessary. I simply put in the entire bunch after rinsing it.
>> Chuck in the sliced up smoked mackerel.
>> Add all the seasoning agents – vegetable stock powder or cube, black pepper and salt.
>> Lock in the lid of your soup maker and turn it on.
>> Select the mode of soup – smooth or chunky. I always go for smooth. It’s soup after all. But if chunky is your bag, then by all means select that option and you are good to go.
Once you have selected your soup type, the soup maker goes to work. My soup maker cooks soups in 21 minutes and it will be counting down. When the counter hits zero it beeps and voila, your soup is ready.
Now enjoy this ravishing taste of the mackerel infused broccoli coriander soup. It’s just awesome!
