Cream of Greens Soup

With the harsh, snowy and cold winter we've been having here, soups have been in my kitchen a lot lately. I love pureed soups - they are so easy to make, go well with any meal, and are popular with my most pickiest vegetable eater.  The recipe below has the goodness of a few veggies with a splash of carbs from the peas.

Servings: 4
Cooking time: 20-30minutes
  • 1 white onion, diced
  • 3-5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 zucchini, diced
  • 2 teaspoons herbs de provence
  • 2 cups fresh spinach or 1 cup frozen
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 750ml vegetable / chicken broth
  • salt, pepper to taste
1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large pan, saute onions until tender.

2. Add garlic, zucchini, herbs. Pour the broth, bring to a boil, cover, let the broth simmer for about 20minutes.

3. Add spinach and peas, bring to boil and simmer for 5 minutes till spinach wilts.

4. Move the mixture to blender and blend until desired consistency.

Because this soup has a very mild flavour, you can add a splash of lemon juice before serving.
