DETOX VEGETABLE SOUP

By Teresa Cutter

DETOX VEGETABLE SOUP
DETOX VEGETABLE SOUP

What's great about it

A simple soup from my cookbook EARTH TO TABLE that’s power packed with antioxidants, fibre and goodness. It makes the perfect 10-minute meal and wonderful as a light lunch or dinner. This soup helps to support a healthy digestive system as it's rich in prebiotic fibre. 

Pre-biotics refer to natural soluble fibres that feed the good bacteria in our large intestine, helping to promote balanced gut flora and healthy bowel function. Natural pre-biotics are found in a variety of plant-based foods, which is another great reason to eat a nourishing wholefoods diet.

Ingredients

1 leek, washed and sliced

1 clove garlic, smashed

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

500 g (16 oz) broccoli, finely chopped  - you can also use zucchini which is delicious

750 ml  (3 cups / 24 fl oz) hot filtered water 

Sea salt and white pepper to taste


Detox Pesto

1 bunch parsley leaves

1 bunch basil leaves

1 generous handful baby spinach

2 tablespoons macadamia nuts

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Method

SAUTE leek and garlic with the olive oil for a few minutes until softened.

ADD broccoli or zucchini if using followed by the water and simmer for 8 minutes until broccoli is tender.

REMOVE from the heat and blend until smooth then return back to the pot .

STIR IN 2 - 3 tablespoons pesto and season to taste.

MAKE the pesto by combining all the ingredients into a food processor or small hand blender.
