Detox Green Soup

Green soupServes 4 to 6

I always have a batch of zucchini soup in the fridge. It’s the base of a detox soup since it’s essentially water. Throw in a bunch of spinach, garlic and onion…..and voila, a clean green broth that makes you feel fabulous!

1 medium onion chopped
2 tablespoons of olive oil
2 cloves of fresh chopped garlic
1 large bag (100 grams) of fresh spinach
4 medium 500 grams of courgettes (green zucchini)
2 cups (480 ml) of vegetable stock
1 cup of water
1 tablespoon of salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 cup (15 grams) large handful of chopped mint

Saute onions and butter in a large pot over high heat for 10 minutes or until onions are transluscent.  Add garlic, lower heat and add the courgette, water and stock to the pot and bring to a boil over high heat.  Lower heat and simmer, covered for 10 minutes.  Then add the spinach, and cook for another 5 minutes. Puree with a handful of chopped mint.

Option: Garnish with a dollop of craime fraiche and chopped mint.
