Easy green vegetable lemongrass soup #vegan #vegetarian #gluten-free #paleo instructions

  1. Chop up all vegetables for the soup. You will add them to the water in order of 'hardness' as not to overcook softer vegetables..
  2. Put Ghee or olive oil in a pan and saute onion / shallots and garlic on medium fire, stirring the entire time. Cook until onion / shallots become clear, but not brow. Add leak and ginger (if fresh) and saute for another 3-4 minutes..
  3. Add vegetable stock and 'hard' vegetables – carrots, broccoli stems, peas, etc + any vegetables that are frozen..
  4. Add all the spices and herbs, with the exception of fresh parsley..
  5. Cook on low-medium fire until the hardest vegetable (eg carrot) is soft enough to pierce with a fork but still crunchy. Add medium hard vegetables, such as broccoli, Kale, asparagus. Note: Asparagus stems need to cook longer than asparagus tips. Cook for 3-4 few minutes and then add zucchini. Cook until broccoli can be pierced with a fork. Add more water if required throughout cooking..
  6. Add spinach and cook until it wilts – should not be more than 2 minutes so that it stays green. This adds wonderful green colour to the soup. Note: if using frozen spinach, add it at the same time as zucchini..
  7. Turn off the heat and let it cool to room temperature..
  8. Combine the cooked ingredients in the blender with a generous amount of fresh parsley and purée until desired consistency..
  9. Garnish with sprouts, seeds, or flaked almonds. You can also add a tablespoon or two of cooked quinoa for a filling full-meal..
  10. The soup freezes extremely well so you can apportion it to desired quantities and take out during the week. (you may need to add water once heated up).
