Inspiration for soup accompaniment that's vegetarian and slimming world friendly

I am making carrot and coriander soup for some visitors tomorrow. They're doing slimming world, DH and I are veggie. What can I make to go with the soup that's suitable for both? I hear bread is off the cards for SW! I thought quiche, but the less faff the better really as I'm sleep deprived and in the midst of PND so struggling for motivation/energy.

My understanding is they can have a small amount of bread and Syn it or have it as a “healthy extra.”

How rich is your soup? If it’s a thick and hearty one it might not need anything else.

Not sure on the SW rules but I think it's fat that is the big no-no, a small portion of healthy carbs is probably OK. I'm not 100% sure though, so I guess to be safe you could serve a selection of other cold lunch items such as a salad, cheese, cold meats, maybe some pickles or chutneys etc and let everyone pick what they want? Perhaps with some 'diet friendly' bread (is it Danish bread that SW people have or is that WW?) and butter/low fat marg available separately.

When I was on a diet I used to save up 'extra' calories if I knew I was having lunch at someone's house as I wouldn't want to give extra trouble/would look forward to some nice food so you may find they eat more heartily than you expect!

And like TakeaAChansey I do quite often have a nice thick soup just on its own and it's plenty filling enough so maybe don't worry too much! So that's inconclusive really, sorry...!

Is your soup recipe SW-friendly? Lot's aren't !!

If you make a quiche, don't use pastry (use the butternut squash lasagne sheets to line the quiche tin, e.g., don't add any fat and add lots of veggies

Make a Spanish omelette - basically just eggs and lots of veggies - don’t put cheese or potatoes in - you can make it ahead of time and serve hot or cold

Have you used any oil making your soup? Or added cream?

I used to make 'syn free' potato wedges to dip in soup when I was on slimming world. Use spray oil and oven bake.

If you get the plain uncooked poppadoms you can cook them in the microwave, no need for added oil.

Plain uncooked poppadoms will still be syns as they contain flour.
I've had a quick google and the Sharwoods microwaveable ones are 1.5 syns each (and most people get 15 syns a day)

Slices of roasted chicken breast and some cucumber and baby toms? That’s my go to addition for soup if I don’t fancy crusty bread.

Lol chicken breast isn't veggie obviously. Sorry!

How about some sliced boiled egg?

I put a poached egg in soup when I'm hungry. Yum

Much easier than quiche or omelette.

Mini crustless quiches?
