Spicy Vegetable Soup ~ 5-2 Diet

In the winter months I love batch cooking soup so that I can take the soup to work in a flask for my lunch. Nothing beats a bowl of hot piping soup when its cold and miserable. Vegetable soup has no set recipe, you can add any vegetables that you have in your fridge and flavour it in any way you please. I love my soup to have a bit of a spicy kick so I like adding the soya sauce and the hot sauce, you can easily leave it out if you are making it for children or do not like spice. This is one of the easiest recipe to make vegetable soup.
