Whilst rushing around shopping for my vegetables I came across a pack of Kalettes….hmmmm mind started whirring…what could I do with these cute little bundles?

On a  cold and chilly Saturday afternoon, a warming soup beckoned, so I pulled the following ingredients out of the vegetable rack:

Kalettes

3 Leeks

10-15 Asparagus tips

1 bulb of garlic

1 lemon – juiced

1 teaspoon mustard seeds

Roughly chopped the ingredients up and sautéed them in some coconut oil and mustard seeds.

Added about a pint of boiling water and a vegetable stock cube.  Let it come to the boil and then simmered for around 5-8  minutes.  Next, the hand blender made an appearance – had to be very careful as hot soup splashes aren’t pleasant.  Seasoned with some salt and pepper.

Served it with a sprinkle of red pepper flakes and some sumac.

Its perfect as a quick snack or add some grilled chicken or a boiled / poached egg and you have yourself a perfect meal.
