I Quit Sugar - Super Soup
Photo by: Armelle Habib

I love making soup because it's a great way to sneak in so many health benefits. This one not only boosts your hair, skin and nails, it also has a thermogenic effect on the body and is a great way to help speed up your metabolism!  

Servings: 6
Preparation: 15 mins
Cooking: 35 mins

Ingredients

  • 2 cloves garlic, diced.
  • 1 onion, diced.
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped.
  • 1 teaspoon paprika, plus extra to serve.
  • 1/2 bunch celery, stalks diced, tops roughly chopped.
  • 2 cups chopped tomatoes.
  • 2 carrots, roughly chopped.
  • 1 cup sweet potato, diced.
  • 1/2 head cauliflower, cut into small chunks.
  • 1/4 head green cabbage, finely sliced or shredded.
  • 1 cup quinoa, any colour or type.
  • Salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper.
  • 2 large handfuls baby spinach.
  • 1 handful basil leaves, torn.
  • 1/4 cup pecorino, grated.
  • 1 handful cherry tomatoes, to serve (optional).
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil.

Directions

1. Heat the olive oil in a large, heavy-based saucepan over a medium–high heat. Add the garlic, onion, chilli and paprika and sauté for 1 minute, then add the diced celery stalks and paprika and cook a further 2 minutes. Add the chopped tomatoes, carrot, sweet potato and 1.5 litres of water and bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes.

2. Add the cauliflower, cabbage and quinoa and cook for a further 5–10 minutes (or 10–15 if you prefer a less crunchy quinoa). Season to taste, add the celery tops and spinach and immediately remove from the heat. Serve with torn basil, a sprinkling of paprika, a generous scattering of grated pecorino and a couple of cherry tomatoes, if you like.
