Green machine soup
Serves 2/3 people
- 1 x leek
- half a celeriac
- 2 giant handfuls of spinach (half a large bag)
- 1 x cup of home made stock + more to get to your desired consistency
- 2 x large garlic cloves
- Fry light spray
- To make your own home made stock…simply save all your vegetable peelings (onion skin, garlic, potato skin, carrot peelings etc). Put them in a pan with salt and cover with boiling water. Boil for 30 minutes. Drain the liquid into a container. This can be frozen and saved for all types of recipes.
- Rinse of the leek, celeriac and the spinach.
- Peel the celeriac and then roughly chopped it into cubes.
- Cook the celeriac in boiling water on a medium heat for about 15 minutes.
- Chop the leeks and put them into the pan with some fry light spray.
- Cook them on a medium heat and allow them to sweat.
- Finley chop the garlic and add to the leeks. Keep stirring the mix so it doesn’t stick to the pan.
- Add the handfuls of spinach to the leek mixture and allow to wilt.
- Once the celeriac is cooked, drain the water and combine the mixtures into a deep pan.
- Add as much stock as you require (people like there soup in different thickness) and blend.
- Add the salt and pepper.
- For added vanity…add a swirl of alpro plain vegan yogurt and some parsley sprinklings.
This is the easiest recipe that you will ever made…If you can’t get hold of celeriac you can use a couple of potatoes in its place and it will work just the same. Through the working week I usually eat as healthy as possible but I also want to be full… This little beauty ticks all the boxes… You might get some funny looks from people because of its Hulk green color…but I know I have the last laugh because its ‘flocking’ good!! Why not give it a try 🙂
