So this week I am trying to be semi healthy. I even exercised yesterday for the first time in a year. Sadly today I can barely move, so we shall see how long that lasts. You wouldn’t believe it from this blog, but I am generally quite a healthy eater and always eat my five portions of fruit and veg a day. However I always seems to get my five portions of fat and sugar too…. (which kind of balances out all the good work from the  healthy stuff). Anyhow this soup is one of my favourites to make in the winter time. It is a glorious green colour and packed full of vitamins while still being quite tasty. I managed to get two bunches of spinach for 1,500 on Sunday so it is also very cheap to make.


1 large onion

2 large bunches of spinach

4 green peppers

5 cloves of garlic

1 litre of chicken stock (you could also use vegetable)

A glug of olive oil


Finely chop the onions and garlic and fry off for a few minutes until softened. Chop the green peppers and add to the pan. Chop the spinach and add to the pan in batches as it may not all fit at once. Cook until all the spinach has wilted. Add the chicken stock and boil for a further 10-15 minutes. Take the pan off the heat and let the soup cool. Once the soup has cooled blend it up then reheat. Serve with healthy wholemeal bread. Voilà the green goddess!
