Struggling to get green veggies into your family’s diet?  

This delicious winter warming soup is a quick, easy, healthy (and sneaky!) way of getting in a whole feast of super greens and they’ll love it!  I often throw a bit of shaved parmasen over the top for an extra tasty treat.

It’s also packed with folate and essential nutrients for all those Mum’s to be.

Ingredients (Serves 4)

  • 1 broccoli, cut into florets
  • 1 zucchini, diced into 1cm cubes
  • 1 small bunch green asparagus, chopped into 2cm pieces

  • 2 stalks celery, sliced
  • 500ml vegetable stock
  • 3 bay leaves
  • tbsp parsley

  • Extra virgin olive oil and chopped sweet basil to serve

Method

1. Heat a saucepan over medium heat, add garlic, shallots, leek and celery and sauté for about 1 minute.

  • Wow, that’s a great way to include a lot of greens. I’m going to make chow mein tonight and include broccoli, beans, green capsicum and some spinach for more greens. I do love this soup option and would be prepared to try it. I’ve taken a liking to a smoothie with some added greens, so could imagine this soup would work for me too.
