Warm green soup

Greetings loyal foodies! Some of my photos are going to be quite dodgy from when I was camera-less, but bear with me.

I’m sure a more creative title for this one could have found me. Warm.Green.Soup. Well, at least it is descriptive. But so much more than that too – try tasty, nourishing, filling, comforting, moorish….and cheap! All those great things.

This soup has a punchy flavour with minimal effort. It’s ALL good in this soup. There’s nothing shotty, nothing masking anything else. It’s just all solid delicious nutritious food.

Your only issue is whether you can convince people to eat green soup. My kids were not so keen, unsurprisingly.

Here’s how to do it (cook it, that is):

3-4 zucchinis
1/4 cauliflower
1-2 leeks (I used 1 gigantic one, but 2 small is ok)
1 cup baby spinach leaves
1 tin cannelinni beans, drained and rinsed
2 garlic cloves
salt
thyme
garlic powder
dash of apple cider vinegar (or use white wine)
2 cups water

Method:
Saute the leek, garlic and vegetables for 4-5 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and simmer until vegetables are cooked. Once cooled, blend until smooth and creamy. Heat and serve!
