Short on time but still want a home-made meal?

Reading Time: 1


If you need a quick feed but don’t want to reach for  then this easy meal in a cup is speedy, satisfying and healthy to boot!

There is great comfort to be had from a cup-a-soup – especially if made fresh from scratch

Serves 1 – but the ingredients can be increased if you want to share!

1 mug vegetable juice (such as V8 or tinned tomato soup)
40g tinned borlotti beans
60g frozen vegetables
15–20g vermicelli noodles

to serve – all optional

A drizzle of pesto
1⁄2 tbsp parmesan shavings
Fresh parsley
Pinch of chilli flakes

1 Pour the juice or soup into a mug and then add the borlotti beans, vegetables and noodles. Heat in the microwave on high for 2–3 mins. Alternatively, bring the mixture to boil in a saucepan on the hob. You want to heat it enough to cook the noodles and frozen veg thoroughly – around 4 mins.

2 Serve topped with a drizzle of pesto, parmesan shavings, fresh parsley leaves or chilli flakes.
