The Lunch Idea- Sweet Pepper Soup

Eating a healthy lunch when at work or uni seems nearly impossible since most places don’t offer organic, natural food without the “bad stuff.”

But let me tell you: There is a way around it!

On my trip to the Netherlands last year I discovered that the Dutch often just eat soup and sandwiches for lunch.

Ever since I saw that I have been coming up with lunch ideas that are
suitable for when I am not at home or those days I am too hungry to cook-
contradictory but true.

So here is my recipe for healthy fast food 😉

Sweet Pepper Soup:

What you need:

  • 3 potatoes
  • 2 peppers
  • 2 small onions
  • 1 Tsp . honey
  • 2 cups of water
  • chilli powder
  • half a soup cube
  • salt

How to go about it:

  1. Cook the potatoes, while cutting up the peppers and onions.
  2. Throw them into a pan and fry them until they are well done. Drizzle honey over the vegetables and let the them caramelise for about 3 minutes.
  3. Once the potatoes are done ( which you can simply check by sticking a sharp knife into them and as soon as it doesn’t meet with resistance near the center of the potatoes, they are done) put 2 cups of water into a pot and add the soup cube.
  4. After 5 minutes add the rest of the ingredients and cook everything for about 15 minutes.
  5. The last step is mixing everything with an immersion blender, or alternatively with a mixer.

I always like a bit of pumkinseed oil in my soup, if you have never tried it, you do not know what you have been missing out on! I usually make soup for the five days I am at work or uni.

To preserve your soup you just simply fill the hot soup into a jar, apply the lid and flip it upside down. Let it sit for at least 40 minutes. This way you don’t have to put it in the fridge and you can store it for at least a year, if necessary.

Enjoy !
