Spring chicken soup

This healthier chicken soup recipe is low in calories, fat and salt but still just as comforting.

Serves 4

Prep Time 10 min

Cooking Time 10 min


  • 2 very low salt chicken stock cubes
  • 2 large skinless chicken breasts, thinly sliced
  • 2tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 300g green beans
  • 160g frozen peas
  • 160g frozen sweetcorn
  • 2 courgettes, thinly sliced
  • 2 x 400g tins cannellini or butter beans in water, drained
  • 4 slices sourdough bread, to serve
  • Fresh basil leaves, to garnish (optional)


  1. Dissolve the stock cubes in 1 litre boiling water in a large saucepan. Bring back to the boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer.
  2. Add the chicken and ginger to the pan and cook for 2 min. Add the green beans, peas, sweetcorn, courgettes and cannellini or butter beans, then bring back to the boil. Simmer for 5 min or until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender.
  3. Season the soup with pepper, then divide among 4 bowls and serve with the bread, garnished with fresh basil leaves, if you like.
