I am eating bright coloured things this month. I really think it's the only thing to stop me getting ill. What can be healthier than a bowl of bright green soup? Oh, and check out these mini tangerines I saw in M&S, terribly cute.
1 head of broccoli
1 bag of spinach
2 pints of chicken stock
1 large onion
1 small clove of garlic
pinch of nutmeg or all spice, salt and pepper
Fry chopped onion in a little olive oil, slowly until the onion is sweet. Crush the garlic in and stir, followed by a potato, cubed.
After 5 minutes, add stock and bring to simmering point.
Chop broccoli and add to soup, simmer for 10 minutes.
Turn the heat off.
When tender, blend. Once blended, add the spinach and wait a couple of minutes until the spinach has wilted in the soup before whizzing again (this retains that bright green colour and keeps all the goodness in)
Taste and add a good pinch of nutmeg or allspice and then salt and pepper to taste.
It's hard to tell how small these are! (the bowl fits in the palm of my hand)
