3 ingredients and ready in 10 minutes, this fast and healthy soup can be enjoyed all year round, especially when you’ve no time to cook!

Hi everyone, I’m back from what was a truly amazing holiday in Mauritius with my gorgeous husband and plenty of much-needed sunshine!

We stayed in two stunning resorts (mostly because we couldn’t decide between them, so spent a week in each!) and the food in each was absolutely phenomenal.

I’ve found everywhere I’ve travelled the staff have been so very helpful with my dietary requirements – all you need to do is give them some notice!

So I’ll be sharing plenty of tips on how you can enjoy your holiday without compromising your food choices (or sabotaging all your previous efforts and hard work) in a future article, but for now I wanted to share with you one of my favourite recipes that has become a firm favourite with many of my personal training clients and attendees of Boot camp.

Not only because it’s absolutely delicious, but it contains only three ingredients and takes just TEN MINUTES (including prep time!)

This soup is also suitable for all seasons, if the weather is awful I love enjoying it hot as it’s warming and comforting. When it gets warmer, I enjoy it either room temperature or cold as a gazpacho.

It’s so incredibly versatile, I often make a huge batch on a Sunday to last me throughout the week.

I find it pretty filling on its own, but you can always have it with my homemade gluten-free bread or a large salad (depending on how hungry you are!)

It also makes a great starter, if you’re planning a dinner of a few courses and want the minimum effort.

It was one of the first things I made once I’d done our first big shop after returning home, and I really hope you enjoy it as much as I do (and everyone else who has tried it so far!)
