No longer need you fear the winter weather; this delicious and warming soup is a wonderful way to have three of your five a day. It is exactly what we need on those cold days, stretching from November to February, to give the immune system a boost. Protect yourself from Christmas coughs and sneezes, and tickle your tastebuds at the same time.

This recipe produces a slightly thicker soup, which is wonderful as a winter warmer for hurried lunch breaks at home by the radiator, making colleagues jealous in the office, or enjoying in a more leisurely manner on a weekend. However, this super green soup is also yummy in the summer; vary it according to what’s in season. Leftovers will keep in the fridge for two days, otherwise, freeze once cooled. Suitable for all ages, this recipe is a wonderful way of getting children to eat their greens (and beans), and no one can resist dipping some yummy bread into something just as scrummy.

Enjoy at lunch, or make a slightly smaller portion for a starter course, or a larger portion to make a healthy evening meal.
