So here it is, the second offering in my Indian feast triptych of delights. I'll confess, this is probably my very favourite of all three, purely just because I am a spinach ADDICT! I love the stuff, I eat it in salads, I drink it in smoothies and sometimes, I just eat handfuls of it on its own. I especially love it when it's wilted and mixed with potato, cauliflower and spices. YEAH MAN!!! In true award ceremony style, I have to thank my awesome friend Esharan for the inspiration for this recipe, because when a friend gives you a vegan recipe passed on by her Indian mother who is an incredible cook- YOU JUST MAKE IT OK?!?!?!!!! (Thanks Shaz xxx)
This thick, creamy and filling soup not only tastes great, but is a great immune booster to help ward off those winter sniffles that are just around the corner, kindly provided by the inconsiderate sod who sneezed ON YOU on the bus (thanks dude!) Luckily for me I have THIS anti-sniffles-guard, so I'm just fine thanks! This garlic, onions, leeks and turmeric in this soup make it an anti-inflammatory super-force to be reckoned with. Interesting (or not) fact, I have not had a single cold since being vegan, so bang goes the theory of pale and sickly vegans withering away in a corner!! I'm sure there are many pale sickly vegans, (as there are many pale and sickly omnivores) and that's because they probably just eat bread and chips, and, well... who is going to be strong and healthy on that?!
