Recipe Ingredients for Super Green Pesto Soup

2 stalk, medium (7-1/2" - 8" long) Celery
1 bunch Broccoli
1 medium (2-1/2" dia) Onions
100 grams French String Beans
1 medium raw Leeks
50 grams Kale
4 clove Garlic
60 grams Classic Pesto
600 grams Vegetable Stock
1 Can Beans
5 grams Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 large raw Zucchini

Recipe Directions for Super Green Pesto Soup

  1. Finely chop the onions, garlic, celery and leek. Saute gently in a non stick pan with a teaspoon of olive oil and a splash of water. Add chopped zucchini (courgette to us Brits). Season with salt and pepper. I recommend using Herbamare salt for extra flavour.

  2. Transfer softened vegetables to big soup pan. Add 2 pints of vegetable stock (I use 3 stock cubes to make up the stock), plus chopped broccoli, french beans and cale. Simmer for about 20 mins (until broccoli stems soft).

  3. Stir in two tablespoons of green pesto and drained tin of broad beans.

  4. Remove from the heat and blend the soup.

  5. Serve with a teaspoon of low fat cottage cheese stirred in.
