This thick, warm, comforting soup is so delicious and so healthy, you will hardly believe it. It's a definite go-to for wintery evenings and is a great part of any detox diet. Stay away from packaged 'healthy' soups this winter - most of them are full of hidden dangers that I don't even want to get into. Soup is easy to make, so no excuses here! The focus of this soup is the spinach and broccoli (typically veggies that people don't like). Luckily, they are hidden and all you will notice are the amazing health benefits. They act as powerful antioxidants in the body, protecting the immune system in the toughest of times. High in folate, magnesium, calcium, iron, vitamin C...the list goes on and on. Warm up and nourish your body with this green veggie soup.
Fry onion in a deep pot.
Chop all ingredients and add to the pot.
Fry for 1 minute before adding the vegetable stock.
Add more water for a thinner soup.
Turn down the heat, cover and allow to steam/cook for 30 minutes or until all the veggies are soft.
Allow to cool before mixing in the herbs and blending.
Serve hot or cold.
