Raddichio-Spinach Soup (Aka Watercress Soup)

This is a fantastic soup for weight loss and for health, Spinach is an amazing fighter against cancers while Raddichio is a great blood builder plus the potato and onion help to make you feel full. This recipe will serve 4 but I usually make it every two days for me and mine and my husband’s lunch.

1 Raddichio head (rinsed and coarsley chopped)
1/4-1/2 package of spinach (rinsed and coarsley chopped)
1 yellow flesh potato (diced with or without skin, skin is better more nutrients). Im actually going to try this with sweet potato next time-without skin.
1 medium yellow onion (diced)
1 garlic clove (pressed)
4 cups of water or chicken-vegetable stock
(if using water add dry stock to the mix as per label usually 1 cube or 1 tsp per cup of water)
 small handful of Fresh parsley chopped (optional)
salt + pepper to taste

Directions:
1. Put everything in a pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling simmer for 20 minutes.
2. Once soup is finished if you have the time let it cool down if not proceed to step 3.
3. Using a laddle and a blender – laddle out the solids, draining as much fluid as possible and put the solids in a blender (you may have to do this a few times depending on how big your blender is) pulse blend all the solids until they are a smooth consistency similar to a smoothy. Pour blended mixture back into liquid soup and divide among containers or bowls.

Note: Youll want to blend the soup really well and get all the potato in there as failure to do so will cause your soup to be incredibly sharp, if this happens, dont be a baby! Stomach it anyways!!
