A very green soup - healthy and tasty

It's getting cold here and I like soup but the ones in the shop give me digestion issues. Here's a very green soup that tastes good too - you can't really go wrong and even my children like it. If you get into soups, a hand blender is an essential kitchen gadget.


2 medium leeks
1 or 2 medium potatoes
1 or 2 carrots
A bag of spinach (washed)
A bag of watercress (washed)
2.5-3 pints of vegetable stock (or water)
Seasoning to taste


1. Chop up the leeks, carrots and potatoes. Put them in a pan with stock and bring to a simmer.
2. Simmer for 20-30 minutes until they look done.
3. Add the spinach and give it 5 more minutes.
4. Turn out the heat, add the watercress.
5. Blend it until smooth, and season to taste.

If you're feeling a bit drained, then this soup seems just the ticket.
