“Spray2Cook” (a word used to describe any low-cal. non-stick cook’s oil spray)
Microwave the onion, carrots and celery for 6 minutes in a little water.
Whilst the vegetables are microwaving put a lidded casserole sprayed with Spray2Cook on at a high to medium heat. When the Spray2Cook is bubbling add the chicken and sausage slices to brown all over. Add the vegetables and heat through for 2 minutes.
Add the stock. Bay leaf, herbs and mustard. Allow to boil then turn to a simmer with the lid on for 20 minutes.
Timed to add at the 20 minutes timing microwave the potatoes in a little water for 8 minutes. Add the potatoes and stir, return to the boil and then simmer for 10 minutes.
Add the spinach and wilt for the last 3 minutes cooking time before stirring and removing the bay leaf and then serving in heated bowls.
IF you have any left over it makes great soup (even if the meat is in short supply) Just chop everything with a knife then blend with a hand blender. Avoid completely liquidising as it needs to be a bit lumpy!
