Little Green Soup


Low in fat and lighter than the more traditional leek & potato version. Serve with Rye bread for a warming family lunch. You and your children will love this easy to make little green soup.

I prefer to use the whites of the leek, but this is preference only, so feel free use the whole vegetable.


Little Green Soup


  • 2tsp olive oil
  • 1 medium potato
  • 1 leeks (about 200 grams) sliced & and rinsed
  • 100g broccoli florets
  • 50g frozen peas
  • 1.5 litter of hot stock (vegetable or chicken)
  • clove of garlic
  • salt/black pepper

*makes 3-4 portions

Heat the olive oil in a large heavy based pan and sauté the leek and garlic for about 10 minutes until tender. Add the potato and cook for a further 5 minutes.

Pour in the stock, add broccoli and peas and bring to a boil then cover and reduce the heat to a simmer for about 15 – 20 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.

Cool then pureé until smooth – blend with food processor or hand blender until runny and smooth.  Add a salt and generous sprinkle of black pepper to taste and serve piping hot.

Sprinkle with cheese and serve with nice fresh bread.
