12 Jun Spring asparagus, butterbean and leek soup
Creamy soup with asparagus and leeks is a perfect meal on a cool spring/summer day. No doubt my favourite vegetable of all, asparagus contains the powerful antioxidant glutathione that wipes out free radical and carcinogens. It is also a diuretic which helps rid the body of excess salts. Leeks contain notable quantities of vitamins A and K while butter beans are packed with health-giving nutrients and fibre. All in all, this serves as an ideal cleansing and nourishing spring soup that just happens to taste heavenly.
