Now and then we all have to “go extra light”. The best way to do it is to cut something we realllyyy like 😉 :

  • Salt & Fat

You will be amazed what difference it will make to your body if you exclude these two from your diet (at least khe khe) for a while.

I would like to share with you an extra light and delicious soup recipe, which is perfect for the days when I think: “Mmmmm… I wanna eat something light!”

So, put on your sexy kitchen outfit and start!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups low sodium vegetable broth, divided. (Alternatively use 1/2 cube veg stock)
  • 1/4 cup peeled and chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup peeled and diced sweet potatos
  • 1/4 cups chopped celery
  • 1 can chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tb. sp. chopped parsely
  • 1 tb. sp. chopped chives
  • 1 cup steamed fresh spinach
  • 1 cup steamed kale
  • Fresh cracked pepper
  • Cayenne pepper

Preparation:

In a sausepan combine 1/4 cup of the stock with the onion, celery and sweet potatoes. Sweat the vegetables for 8 minutes over medium heat, stirring. The stock will reduce – time to add the tomatoes and the rest of the stock, simmering until the vegetable are soft. Add the basil, parsley, chives, spinach and kale (the last two have been previoisly steamed, remember?!), and simmer for another 5 minutes. Season with black pepper and a pinch of cayenne. Serve.

This tasty and light soup is made in minutes! Buon apetito!

Portion size: approx. 250 gr. If you want to make more soup, increase the amount of ingredients accordingly.
