Whenever you need something warming and hearty, this soup is an excellent choice.

Ingredients:
6 cups (1.5 litres) water
1 onion (chopped)
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp ground coriander seeds
1 sweet potato
1 white potato
1 big broccoli head
3 big handfuls of spinach or chard
1 big or 2 smaller carrots
salt or broth powder to taste

Preparation:
Put everything besides the broccoli and spinach into a large soup pot. Bring to boil. Cook covered for 8 minutes. Add broccoli. Cook for another 5 minutes, then add spinach and cook for 3 minutes.

Blend the soup right in the pot with immersion blender – leave some chunks in.

Season with sesame seeds, cayenne or black pepper, and fresh thyme.

Have fermented buckwheat bread with hummus to make the dinner or lunch more nutritious.

Tip:
You can also use broccoli stems – just peel them first.
