This is a simple recipe which is not only extremely healing, but super tasty too. The bone broth is beneficial for the digestive tract and boosting the immune system while the spinach will help alkalise the body, and contains more calcium than milk.

Ingredients:

2 tbs coconut oil

1 medium onion roughly chopped

2 cloves of garlic roughly chopped

1 tbs ginger minced

3 medium courgettes roughly chopped

1 litre chicken broth or other bone broth

400g baby spinach

1 tsp nutmeg

300ml coconut milk

½ - 1 lime, juice

½ - 1 tsp salt

1 small bunch of fresh basil

 

Method:

1.       Melt the coconut oil to a big pot and add the onions. Sauté until soft, about 5 minutes, then add the garlic ginger and courgette and sauté for a further 5 minutes.

2.       Add the stock and bring to the boil, simmer for about 8 minutes until the courgettes are cooked.

3.       Add the spinach, nutmeg, coconut milk, lime juice & salt and stir for a minute or two.

4.       Transfer to a blender in batches with the basil, taste and adjust flavours to your liking, adding more salt or lime if desired.

5.       Time to slurp! 

Serves 6-8
