This is what I call 'what's left in the fridge' soup! Mainly parsnips which are nice and sweet and great for disguising the more bitter flavours of the greens! I bought my whizzer before my first baby was born so that I could make my own baby food. Still using the same one 26 years on! Soup is a fab way to get your 'five a day' often in one meal and is ideal for children as blitzing allows you to sneak in other veg.
Just fry an onion into a desert spoon of metabolism/immune boosting coconut oil, add your chopped veg, some stock to cover, handful of mixed herbs and 2-3 bay leaves, sea salt and black pepper.
Bring to boil and simmer for 20 mins. Then put your feet up and enjoy the heart-warming aromas in your kitchen! (That's what I did this morning with some relaxing music and a book) Remove bay leaves, blitz and serve.
Tip: always best to add a protein source eg leftover chicken, cup of lentils or butter beans as this will sustain you longer and help manage blood sugar. Adjust cooking time to suit if adding pulses. Butter beans, chickpeas etc can be bought ready cooked to save time.
