Despite our recent flurry of snow, I noticed the early signs of spring around Perthshire this week with the first bursts of colour appearing in groups of crocuses and daffodils. Although it’s certainly still winter it gave me hope that spring is really just around the corner so using what is available from Perthshire’s local and seasonal offerings it was easy to come up with this delicious green soup which although light and spring inspired, is still hearty and warming.
Not only is this soup a lovely colour, it is packed with nutrients and is really tasty. I hope you try it out at home.
Regular readers will know that I am big fan of all soups and like Gill, I think this recipe is a the perfect bridge between winter and spring. Imagine a gorgeous walk out in the crisp, cold air enjoying the colours appearing below frosty ground and then arriving yo home to a big bowl of this powerhouse soup.
Our bodies crave extra vitamin C and other nutrients at this time of year and with courgettes, kale and celeriac all making an appearance in one tasty bowl, you'll be guaranteed a little boost of energy!
Loving the toasted almonds to serve. Genius!
