- The mint should come through so don’t be afraid to add a generous handful of fresh mint when you’re blending the soup.
- For garnish we add fresh salad leaves, extra mint and pumpkin seeds.
- Avoid using soy cream and opt for an oat instead to make this soy-free.
Green Goddess Soup
Green Goddess Soup. Simple, nutritiuos and delicious 🥦Posted by So Vegan on Friday, 11 October 2019
- oil for frying
- 1 leek
- 3 garlic cloves
- 2 cubes vegetable stock
- 1/2 large white potato
- 200g / 7oz broccoli florets
- large handful kale
- large handful Spinach
- 2 cups frozen peas
- 1 lemon
- large handful fresh mint leaves
- large pinch chilli flakes
- salt & pepper
- soy or oat cream
- fresh green leaves
- pumpkin seeds or similar
- Drizzle a little oil in a large saucepan on a medium - high heat. Trim and discard the roots off the leek, then slice and add to the saucepan. Fry for 5 minutes until translucent.
- Peel and dice the garlic, then add it to the saucepan and fry for 2 minutes.
- Meanwhile combine the 2 stock cubes with 1.5 litres of hot water straight from the kettle. Then peel the potato and dice it into 1cm cubes. Add both the vegetable stock and potato to the saucepan. Cover the saucepan with a lid, reduce to a low-medium heat and leave to cook for 10 minutes.
- Add the broccoli florets, cover the saucepan with the lid and cook for 5 - 10 minutes or until broccoli and potatoes are soft.
- Stir in the kale, spinach and 1.5 cups of frozen peas. Leave to cook for a few minutes until the kale and spinach have wilted and the peas are soft.
- Transfer the soup to a blender along with the juice from the lemon, mint leaves and chilli flakes. Blend on high for a couple of minutes or until the soup is smooth. We love the soup to have a fairly strong mint flavour, so we'll usually taste at this point and add more mint if necessary. Note, you may have to do this in two batches if your blender isn’t big enough.
- Transfer the blended soup back to the saucepan on a low-medium heat. Stir in the remaining 1/2 cup of frozen peas and heat through. Taste and season to perfection with salt and pepper.
- Serve in bowls with a drizzle of dairy-free cream, a handful of green leaves and a sprinkling of pumpkin seeds.
