This is my go to easy quick soup. Its filled with greens but has a bunch of flavour thanks to the curry powder. So don’t stress it does taste amazing even if it looks more like a detox meal than a winter comfort. I love any soup served with a fresh slice of sough dough.
1 leek or onion diced
2 small broccoli heads or 1 large, cut the florets off from the stem
2 zucchinis, diced
1 potato, diced
1 teaspoon curry powder
5 cups of vegetable stock
2 handfuls of spinach (optional)
salt and pepper to season
Place a drizzle of olive oil in a deep pot, place on the stove top and over a medium heat lightly fry off onion until softened. Add curry powder and stir to coat onion.
Add the potato for a minute or two to allow to soften slightly and coat with the curry powder.
Now throw in the broccoli and zucchini. Stir to combine before pouring in the stock. For a lighter soup you can add an extra cup of stock.
Bring the mix to the boil and then lower to a gentle simmer. Leave for 20-30 minute or until broccoli and potato has softened. Turn stove off, season mix and if adding the spinach then throw in now, and leave to cool down. Once cool, use a blitzer to vitamise the soup to a smooth consistency or place in a blender. I have such a sense of satisfaction when blitzing smoothies and soups. Reheat and serve!
