Cleansing Spring Vegetable Soup - Courgettes, Peas And Potatoes

Courgettes, Peas And Potatoes
The tiniest early courgettes will soon be in the shops. Whatever you do don’t peel them, as all the vitamin A and fibre is in the skin. The sweetest new potatoes are around now too, full of energy and rich in vitamin C, and when combined with the vitamin-rich mange tout and natural plant hormones in the runner beans, make this a real souper-soup for spring vitality. Very low in calories and simply oozing with immune-boosting, protective and restorative nutrients, a bowl of this with a chunk of crusty wholemeal bread make a fabulous meal.
