This nourishing winter soup is rich in anti-inflammatory properties and fibre rich vegetables. I love to make a big pot and enjoy this soup throughout the week.


Serves: 2-4

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 leeks, sliced
  • 6 large zucchinis, sliced
  • 3 vegetable stock cubes
  • water
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp Himalayan salt
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • black pepper, to taste
  • 1 bunch parsley, finely chopped
  • crushed walnuts or almond dukka, to serve



  1. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Add the leek, and cook for 5 minutes or until they’re golden and caramelised. Next, add the zucchini, chilli flakes, cumin, salt and pepper and cook for 5 minutes.
  2. Add the stock cubes and just enough water to cover vegetables. Bring to the boil.
  3. Reduce the heat to a simmer for at least 20 minutes. Add extra salt and pepper, to taste.
  4. Using a stick blender or a food processor, blend the soup until it’s smooth and creamy.
  5. Serve between bowls and garnish with a sprinkle of parsley, crushed walnuts or almond dukka.
