Almond & Leek Soup

In the cooler months, there is nothing we like better than soups! Full of nutrients and fantastic for the immune system, soups are a warming way of adding more veggies into your diet! There are also endless options to choose from, making eating healthy in the colder months easy and interesting! Some of our favourites are tomato soup, cauliflower soup, Tom yum soup and Tom kah ago soup.

We often incorporate soups into our diet – especially if we are doing our 21 Day Detox! When we want wanting something different to juices or when it’s cold, soups are such a satisfying option! Here’s a recipe full of good fats and cold-fighting ingredients, perfect for a chilly autumn day!

Peel and chop the potato. Chop the broccoli and add both to the pot.
Add the almond meal and stir the mixture, still on a medium heat.
Add boiling water to cover the mixture, along with the stock, the paprika and the salt.

Once the soup has cooled for about 10-15mins, pulse it with a hand blender until smooth.
Serve with chopped almonds and a sprinkle of paprika.
