Since it is cold in London I thought I would put up a warming soup recipe this week packed full of goodness. The beauty of soups just like smoothies, is that you can really use a variety of ingredients. For this soup I decided to use cavolo nero, tenderstem broccoli and borlotti beans. A simple, healthy and delicious soup.
2-3 Tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
100g of cavolo Nero
100g of tendertem broccoli
1/2 a can of barlotti beans
1/2 a white onion finely chopped
2 garlic cloves finely chopped
small piece of ginger finely chopped
Some cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp of turmeric
1 /1/2 teaspoon of bouillon powder
3 cups of water
Start by placing the olive oil. onion, garlic, ginger, turmeric, cayenne pepper in the saucepan and saute’ adding a little water for 2 minutes, then add the chopped tenderstem broccoli, cavolo nero and beans and saute’ for 5 minutes adding a little more water if it has been absorbed. Then add 3 cups of water and bouillon powder and bring to the boil for 15 minutes. Transfer the ingredients from the pan to the blender and blend until smooth. Taste and add salt if necessary. Serve with gluten free bread ( I used one from Biona) and enjoy!
