Spinach soup is so deliciously fresh and crisp, you can't go wrong! Adding in peas and leeks means you're well on your way to 5 a-day and the three greens are very complimentary together. This soup makes for a light and delicate lunchtime treat and can be enjoyed with some croutons or warm crusty bread to make it more filling.

HOW TO MAKE SPINACH SOUP

Method

  1. In a large pan gently melt the butter and fry the leek until soft. Add the white wine for a further two minutes.

  2. Add the spinach to the pan slowly pressing it down to wilt it as you go. Add the peas and vegetable stock and simmer, uncovered for 5 to 10 minutes until cooked through.

  3. Allow to cool briefly before whizzing the soup in a food processor until smooth, then stir in the lemon juice, nutmeg and season to taste. Ladle the soup into bowls swirling a tbsp of cream into each and topping with flaked almonds.
