Nothing beats cuddling up with soup on a chilly night during the winter months. Though soup is always a good idea, I especially prefer to warm up with a healthy hot bowl of soup when it’s cold outside. Last weekend I made healthy eggplant tomato soup – first time! – and it’s a winner already! Are you looking for winter comfort soup that’s easy to make, healthy and filling up? Check this recipe out!
I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again haha: I absolutely LOVE how filling up on fiber-and water rich food can help me to prevent from over-eating. I’m a big eater and I never feeling full, so a huge bowl of soup (water!) avoids the chances to have a high-calorie intake later. If you’re always hungry too and this sounds recognizable to you, you should absolutely try this hunger killing meal.
It’s awesome how easy it is to make yourself a bowl of soup, and: fast! With just a couple of base ingredients you can always create a delicious soup recipe – so make sure you have them in your kitchen 😉 I tried it out with eggplant and tomatoes and guess what: that’s a pretty cool combination! Delicious and the perfect meal to beat the winter, warm up and consume your veggies. Personally I find it more challenging to eat healthy in the cooler months (because I can survive in oversize sweaters, no bikini needed Amsterdam) and this recipe makes the perfect healthy solution when you seek comfort food.
