Lean… Mean…Green Machine Soup

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
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 2 x large garlic cloves
  • Fry light spray


  1. 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.
  2. Rinse of the leek, celeriac and the spinach.
  3. Peel the celeriac and then roughly chopped it into cubes.
  4. Cook the celeriac in boiling water on a medium heat for about 15 minutes.
  5. Chop the leeks and put them into the pan with some fry light spray.
  6. Cook them on a medium heat and allow them to sweat.
  7. Finley chop the garlic and add to the leeks. Keep stirring the mix so it doesn’t stick to the pan.
  8. Add the handfuls of spinach to the leek mixture and allow to wilt.
  9. Once the celeriac is cooked, drain the water and combine the mixtures into a deep pan.
  10. Add as much stock as you require (people like there soup in different thickness) and blend.
  11. Add the salt and pepper.
  12. 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 🙂
