The nights are still so cold and in need of some warming, nourishing and healing soups. I am a huge soup fan and could honestly eat it all year 'round, yes even in the warmer months. It always feel like a big warm hug. I also love how easy they are on my digestive system, filling me up just enough without feeling heavy or tired.
This recipe below can easily be adapted to include other greens such as green beans, white zucchini, cauliflower etc, if you don't have the exact ingredients listed. What I love about this recipe is that there is no veggie stock, and I usually have all the ingredients in my fridge and pantry ready to go.
I like to add an organic vegetable powder to enhance the flavour, but you could easily leave it out as you will get plenty of flavour form the onions, garlic and leeks when combined with the salt.
If you can't have onions and garlic, substitute sautéed celery instead.
This recipe make enough for 4 serves of soup and can be frozen for a quick and healthy weekday meal if you are time poor.
Soups are a wonderful way to add a heap of nutrition, without having to invest a great deal of time. You can have this beautiful meal ready in 30 minutes.
