New favourite warming green soup

by Clare Neill,

Here's a fail-safe pea, mint and spinach soup recipe from the Radiance kitchen that's ideal for light meals pre or post cleanse.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 ltr stock 
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic crushed or finely chopped
  • 1 stalk celery sliced
  • 300g frozen peas (or fresh if in season)
  • 2 tbsp fresh mint finely chopped
  • 100g spinach

Method:

  1. Place 1cm of water in a pan on a medium heat.  Add in the onions, garlic and celery and leave to cook for five minutes with the lid on, ensuring that the pan doesn't run dry.
  2. Add the stock and bring it to the boil. 
  3. Add the peas and turn down to a simmer for 3 minutes. 
  4. Add in the mint and spinach, cook for a further 3 minutes.
  5. Take the pan off the heat and either pour the contents into a blender or use a hand blender and blend until a smooth consistency.
  6. Check the flavour and season to your taste.
  7. Additonally you can add a dash of lemon juice and/or olive oil.  The lemon will help bring out the flavours and the oil adds a depth or flavour.
  8. Serve with some mint leaves as garnish.  

Check The Label - Organic Skincare

We care about what we put on our bodies as much as we do about what we put in them. So we want our juices to be organic and our cleanser and moisturiser as well. However, while there is a legal standard for whether you can refer to food and drink as organic there isn't one for skincare. The Soil Association certification mark shows that you can trust us when we say that Radiance juices are organic and we look for the same validation when we are buying skincare. The Soil Association's #campaign4clarity encourages you to do the same thing. Don't be fooled by a product that claims it's organic when in fact it only contains one organic ingredient. Instead, look for the Soil Association logo. It's proudly displayed by one of our favourite Brit brands, Pai. And there is a whole organic selection available at Content.


New Superfood Blends From Naturya

Naturya

At an amazing Hemsley & Hemsley supper club recently we were seated beside the lovely team from Naturya. Known for their nutrient-rich superfoods like chlorella, maca and acai powder, they have also launched a line of chocolate, green and fruit blends. While we are big proponents that some of the healthiest foods are the simplest (and cheapest!), like broccoli and kale, there's equally a time and place to up the ante with the occasional scoop of superfoods in your blender. Use the Greens Blend in any juice or smoothie or try the Choc Blend in a mug of warm nut milk before bedtime.
