Carrot Almond Soup



Here's another Gillian McKeith recipe from the You Are What You Eat cookbook. As you may know I am going to do a 3 week detox in February, cooking and eating solely from this book. I whipped a half batch of this soup this morning to have all day while I rest up with this cold. It's dead simple, just carrots, celery, garlic, onions, veggie bouillon, cilantro and water boiled up then blitzed in a blender with ground almonds. It's very good too. Slightly sweet and full of nutrients. I feel very healthy eating this soup. Take that chest congestion, runny nose and cough!!!!

Edit: This recipe can be found online here.

Missed the link to the recipe so I'm glad Sal mentioned it. This Soup looks and sounds wonderful. I am a complete Soup addict and could quite happily eat it every day (and often do). It's just so versatile, cheap, filling, healthy and hearty.
YAY! for Soup.
