Gut Bug Soup (Broccoli, Leek & Cauliflower)
Broccoli, Cauliflower & Leek Soup
I've been really trying to increase the diversity of prebiotic foods I've been eating recently, and wanted to combine a whole load of these in one soup! So I've added loads of onion, garlic and leeks to hearty cruciferous broccoli and cauliflower to create a delicious meal for both you and your healthy gut bacteria!
- 1.5-2 litres vegetable stock
- 1 head of broccoli (in florets)
- 1 head of cauliflower (plus the leaves) (in florets)
- 2 leeks trimmed and washed
- 1 onion
- 4 cloves garlic
- 2 medium white potatoes (diced - skin on)
- Salt & Pepper
- 1 tbsp olive oil
Heat the olive oil in a large soup pot over a moderate heat and saute the onions and leeks for 5 minutes until they start to go see through. Then add the garlic and heat for a further 2 minutes.
Add everything else and allow to simmer for 20 minutes or until the veggies are very soft.
Blitz with a stick blender or food processor and serve immediately.
