Some days you just want a big bowl of steaming soup.
Give or take your PJ’s and a blanket.
Nothing fills your tummy like the feeling of a warming veggie broth, with all the beneficial nutrients and vitamins you need to keep your body fighting strong.
Here’s a quick and simple recipe, I’m not afraid to admit I totally winged, that came out delicious and nutritious!
What You Need.
6 sticks of celery, roughly chopped
2 carrots, roughly chopped
2 onions, diced
2 cups of broccoli
1 large handful of spinach leaves
1 thumb sized piece of ginger, grated
1 Tbsp. garlic
1 tsp cayenne pepper
½ litre of vegetable stock
Salt and Pepper to taste
Generous dollop of Coconut cream to top
What You Do.
In a large pot, place in your chopped vegetables and spices.
Pour in the half litre of vegetable stock, and heat the pot.
Boil the kettle and fill with boiling water until your vegetables are fully submerged in the liquid stock.
Place lid onto your soup pot and heat on high for 20 minutes, or until vegetables are soft.
Now time to blend!
Option 1. Remove pot onto a heat proof surface and using a barmix, blend all your vegetables until the soup becomes smooth and thick.
Option 2. Allow the soup to cool a little and pour portions into a blender, or food processor and blend on high until well combined.
