Immunity Chard Soup

A simple immune boosting soup recipe that features tons of leeks, dark leafy chard and fresh herbs balanced by a few root vegetables cooked in a nutritious veggie broth. Use an immersion blender and puree in the same soup pot, or transfer to a stand blender for a silky texture. Serve with garlic bruschetta croutons, toasted pumpkin seeds and a pinch of hot chili flakes for attitude.

The parsley root (or carrots) is used to give the soup some body and creaminess without the need for any heavy cream. You could opt for a zucchini, sweet or golden potato or even a handful of butternut squash instead. An immunity elixir to warm up with on a chili day and easy to make when feeling a little under the weather.
