A view into deep space?
A close-up of a petrie dish?
If you guessed SOUP, you’re correct!
This is our version of Redeeming Green Soup with Lemon & Cayenne with apologies to Kate who created this recipe and photographed it so beautifully on her own site.
A family member was feeling delicate, washed-out and generally unwell.
They needed a light meal-in-a-bowl which would provide a little energy, fluids and green goodness: in particular magnesium, potassium and other minerals, folate and protein. This soup was just the thing!
At this time of year in Australia – autumn/winter – there’s plenty of silverbeet and kale at the markets so this is a cheap, seasonal meal. When a recipe calls for Swiss chard, I use silverbeet.
We didn’t have any cayenne in the pantry, so used a big shake of Mexican spice mix. We could also have used a little chipotle sauce or something else with a bit of kick to finish.
For an extra-sweet combination, next time instead of onions I’ll use leeks and golden French shallots as they’re also in season.
What’s your favourite go-to soup?
