super green soup
This is a really easy and nourishing recipe. Lots of soups don't contain protein which is why they often don't fill you up. I always add beans or lentils to mine as a base to add that protein hit that will sustain your fullness throughout the afternoon.
Ingredients (makes 4 portions)
1 bag spinach
1 head of broccoli (chopped)
1 clove garlic
1 tsp cumin seeds
3 large handfuls of frozen edamame beans (you can also use a rinsed can of white beans or frozen peas which are also high in protein)
large handful of mint (leaves picked)
salt and pepper
Soften the garlic and shallots on a low heat with the cumin seeds
Add the broccoli and fry for a further few minutes
Add the beans and then cover the broccoli and beans with water and add a vegetable stock cube
Cook for 3-4 minutes until the broccoli is soft then add the spinach, mint and lemon juice and season well
Blend until smooth and add more lemon and s&p to taste!
