It's the 20th June and I'm wearing a fleece.
It's not as cold outside as it looks, but I've got a sore throat, feel like I'm going down with something, and I've got a surfeit of spring greens. I need soup. Spring green soup.
This soup is loosely based on a Portuguese Kale & Potato Soup, Caldo Verde.
Serves 4 (makes 1.5l)
1 medium onion, peeled & roughly chopped
1 large clove of garlic, peeled & roughly chopped
1 medium carrot, roughly chopped
1 celery stalk, roughly chopped
1/2 a head of spring greens, roughly chopped (or cabbage)
1 medium potato, roughly chopped
2 vegetable stock cubes
1 tsp smoked paprika
1l recently boiled water
Place all the ingredients in a deep lidded saucepan. Bring to the boil then simmer for 20 minutes. Liquidise and tuck in!
