This super soup is full of iron so a superb dinner for a growing baby! I've also pushed this recipe to friends who are breastfeeding and pregnant too. My mother-in-law was a little intimidated by the “toxic looking colour” but was surprised how good it tasted! I’ll take that as a win.
You can freeze this soup in small cartons to serve at a later date and also mix it with some pasta to use as a pasta sauce.
I came across this recipe on Instagram by ‘babyledfeeding.com’ and absolutely love it! I have slightly adapted it – mainly to make it quicker to produce! ;)
Prep time: 15 mins
Cooking time: 15 mins
Serves: 10 adults – I always like to make extra so I can batch freeze.
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 medium onion
- 2 clove of garlic
- 2 tbsp plain flour
- 1 litre homemade chicken stock / stock cube
- 1 medium head of broccoli, roughly chopped
- 2 cups of frozen peas
- 2 sticks of celery chopped
- 1 bag of Kale
- 1 bag of pre-washed spinach
- ½ tsp of cumin
- Pepper to taste
- 2 tbps natural yoghurt (optional)
- Small bunch of parsley
- Cook the onion in the olive oil and once softening add the garlic and cook for another minute.
- Add the flour and quick stir to absorb, it will look like a white sticky paste.
- Add half of the chicken stock and stir in with a whisk then add the rest
- Add the broccoli, celery, peas and simmer for 10 mins.
- Take off the heat and add the bags of kale and most of the spinach, pepper and cumin.
- Blitz with a food processor. You can also add to a liquidiser if you want it to be totally smooth.
To serve, add a little yoghurt and parsley.
