- Chopped Cabbage
- Chicken stock (Vegetable stock if you are a veggie)
- Fresh Thyme
With Eid well and truly over we can think of no better reason to start a detox. This is easy enough to make so get going and you'll feel healthier in no time!
The ingredients are easy enough to find and this is a cheap as chips soup. You'll make enough for a family or for a few days for yourself
Grab the onions.
Peel them. If you can't complete this step then just give up now!
Chop them up roughly.
Peel the garlic.
Chop the heck out of it
Grab the fresh thyme. Don't even think about using the dry stuff because it tastes like sawdust. Fresh is essential
Pick all the leaves away from the stalks.
Peel the ginger. Use a little knob (hehe) of it as you don't want to overpower the whole soup.
Chop it up roughly. Thats all the prep done and the base flavours ready.
Lash a bit of olive oil into a large pot. The biggest one you have.
Lash all the ingredients that you prepped into the pot. Cook them over a really low heat while you prep the rest of the stuff. Stir them every so often
Prep the kale by washing it and removing the big thick stalks because they are bitter and taste like ass
Your kale should look like this when prepped.
Grab the spuds. Four nice big ones.
Peel and chop them up into even sized pieces.
Lash the potatoes into the pot when all the ingredients are nice and soft. Turn the heat up a little to a medium heat.
The kale will probably take up the whole pot but don't worry it'll shrink.
Keep stirring it the whole time.
Once the kale has decreased in size throw in the cabbage. Make sure to buy pre-chopped stuff so as you don't have to do any extra work.
Keep it all stirred the whole time over the medium heat for about 2-3 minutes
Cover it all in water. Lash in a couple of stock cubes as well (I forgot to take a picture of the stock cubes but you know what they look like so stop complaining)
Turn it down to a low to medium heat and pour yourself a glass of wine or go have a shower. It'll take about 30 minutes to simmer properly and let everything soften up
When the potatoes are soft and starting to fall apart you are good to go.
Blitz it all in either a blender or with a hand gun.
After seasoning it up with some salt and pepper and make sure it is super smooth
Serve it up and feel that goodness soaking down into your body!
