Spinach and Leek Soup

I love experimenting with soups these days.  Not only is it an excellent winter warmer meal, but making your own soups at home turns out to be pretty healthy and nutritious.

Spinach and Leek Soup

Take this recipe of Spinach and Leek Soup for an example.  It is a hearty meal made with sautéed onion, leeks and garlic cooked in vegetable stock with baby spinach and fresh mint, served with mushrooms and micro greens.  An excellent source of Vitamin A, K and folate, spinach also boasts with a mere 7 calories per cup.  Wowzers. Pass the soup please!

I found adding a bit of cayenne pepper also warms up the throat, and the fresh mint leaves a refreshing taste behind.  Hope you can give it a go!

Not only is this Spinach and Leek Soup comfortingly delicious and nutritious, it also looks fabulous with its grass green look, sure to liven up any dinner table.  Serve it as a starter with parmesan crisps or as a hearty main with fresh ciabatta or Panini.  Oh, and did I mention the soup recipe is completely low carb and Banting friendly?  Pleasure!
