This soup recipe is a perfect way to get enough veggies into your meal. It is one of my favorite recipes for postpartum recovery, since you can make it in advance and freeze for when you are ready. For an added boost, you can add collagen protein to your bowl!
• 1 tbsp. coconut oil
• 7 oz. (200g) leeks, chopped
• 2 tbsp. ginger, chopped
• 2 broccoli heads, florets
• 1 large potato, peeled, chopped
• 1 tsp. turmeric
• 1 tsp. salt
• 1 tbsp. sesame oil
• 6 cups (3 litres) stock
• 6 tbsp. natural yogurt (or dairy free option)
• 6 tsp. sunflower seeds
Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the leeks and cook for around 5-6 minutes, until leeks are softened.
Add in the ginger, broccoli florets, chopped potato, turmeric, salt, sesame oil and stock.
Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 10 mins until the vegetables are soft.
Blend until creamy and smooth with a hand blender, then season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Serve topped with yogurt and sunflower seeds.
The soup can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 days, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
