Winter Cleanse Soup


2 bunches asparagus, cut into thirds
200g spinach
4 stalks celery, roughly diced
1 head broccoli, broken into florets
1 white onion
1 leek (optional)
1 clove garlic
1 tsp cumin
½ or 1 fresh green birds eye chilli – depending on how much heat you’d like
1.5 L sugar + MSG-free vegetable or chicken stock
1 tbsp coconut oil
Salt and pepper to taste
lemon to taste
¼ cup pine nuts – soaked in hot water
Optional – parsley


1. Place the pine nuts in a small bowl and cover with boiling water whilst preparing the rest of the soup.

2. Sauté onion, celery, leek, coconut oil and a little water over medium heat until translucent, about 6 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another 2 minutes.

3. Add the asparagus, broccoli, green chilli and stock. Cook on a low simmer for 15 minutes.

4. Turn the heat off and add drained pine nuts, spinach, and black pepper. Transfer to the blender and blend until smooth – you’ll need to do this in batches.

5. Once blended, add the juice of ½ lemon and season to taste. If you’d like more heat, add 2 ladles of soup back to the blender with the remaining chilli and blend until smooth before returning to the rest of the soup.
