Monster Soup!

IMG_4407

Having suffered for a few weeks with headaches and dizziness and after a bit of advice from my PT I decided to up my iron and calcium intake. His suggestion was kale and spinach. I am not overly keen on either of these as vegetables in their own right but don’t mind them in things.

After a bit of searching I found a recipe for ‘Monster soup’ aka spinach and kale soup.

When the onions, garlic and ginger were cooking it smelt lovely, then we added the spinach and kale and I thought “this is going to be really bitter” but it was delicious! We didn’t add yeast flakes (mainly because we didn’t know what they were!) and we forgot to add the lemon juice at the end but it still tasted lovely. We made ours with rice but can see this would work fine with quinoa too.

The soup is very green looking so we thought our three year old would like eating monster food, sadly I think she found it too much for her little taste buds, but we enjoyed it.
