Green Soup

green soup

Guys, I think you should know that green juice is overrr! It’s ALL about the green soup now!
Well, maybe not really but I do know one thing – and that’s that this soup is totally healthy and delicious. You can really just ad whatever you want to it and I’m sure it will taste delcious. My combination has a kind of thai vibe to it for some reason – maybe because I love garlic so I kinda loaded it in there!

I’ve had this horrible cold for a few days and it’s come at the worst time possible (#urgh!). It may be after Christmas and New Year, but I have my exams tomorrow so hopefully it will go by then!

This is perfect for times like this when I want something healthy but literally cannot be bothered to even stand up, let alone cook something in the kitchen!

Green Soup vegan, gluten free and dairy free
Serves 1
1/2 courgette, sliced
1 clove of garlic, crushed
Knob of ginger, julienned
Handful of kale
2 handfuls of spinach
1/4 chicken or vegetable stock cube
Slice of lemon
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Heat olive oil in a pan with garlic and ginger until fragrant then add the onions.

Add the cougette for 1 minute or so then add in boiling water until it’s just covered and add the stock cube.

At this point, you can add the kale and spinach.

Once it has wilted, get a hand blender and blend it up until smooth.
You can always add more water at this point.

Just before serving, squeeze lemon juice over it.

You can also make this in a Vitamix or Blendtec, by just adding the ingredients in for 10 minutes or so and it will come out probably more smoothly than using a hand blender!

Also, if you want it a creamy consistency when using a Vitamix, feel free to add in cashews!
