  1. Heat ½ tbsp vegetable oil in a large, lidded frying pan over a medium- low heat. Add 1⁄2 a 600g pack Butternut Squash & Sweet Potato Soup Mix, cover and cook for 10 mins.
  2. Remove the lid, stir and cook for another 5 mins until the veg is tender and caramelised. Set aside; repeat with the remaining vegetable mix. Meanwhile, heat a separate frying pan over a medium-low heat and fry a 130g pack Diced Chorizo for 3-5 mins until crisp and releasing its oil. Scoop out with a slotted spoon and set aside, leaving the oil in the pan.

Divide an 80g bag Watercress, Spinach & Rocket between 4 plates, then top with the cooked veg mix, the chorizo and the ciabatta croutons. Drizzle each with 1 tsp Low Fat Balsamic Dressing to serve.
