This is one of my families favourites, everyone loves it from the baby up and I know it’s great for their bodies to fight all those nasty coughs and colds. For any picky eaters this can be blended.
1 leek (protects blood vessels and blood cells)
1 tsp of mustard seeds (high in B vitamins, helping to regulate sleep and mood)
1 tsp chilli flakes (optional by taste) (immune boosting)
1 tbs chopped fresh ginger (excellent anti-inflammatory)
1 tbs vegetable bouillon
1 tbs coconut oil (anti viral, anti bacterial)
2 parsnips, washed and chopped (energy boosting and good for the nerves)
2 carrots (high in vitamin A, supporting immunity)
1 stalk of celery (helps to cleanse the body)
1 sweet potato (anti-inflammatory)
2 cups of kale (packed with minerals)
1/2 a red pepper (rich in immune boosting nutrients)
1/2 a cup of goji berries (amazing anti-oxidant)
In a pan, put the coconut oil on at a medium heat and let it melt. Add in the chopped leek and the seasoning and lightly sautee until the leeks are soft.
Add in all of the other vegetables, chopped, and mix so that all of the seasoning coats it. Do this for a few minutes then add in 4 cups of water and stir together. Leave to simmer for 30 minutes, or until the vegetables are soft.
