In this soup I have not used other than natural ingredients. Nothing prepacked, no stock cubes or other stuff full of preservatives. Of course, if we want to detox we must eat simple things, yet use some natural favourings to spice up.

Was the vegetables, peel potatoes and carrots, trim off only the hardest bits but leaving all the green part. Chop all the vegetables roughly and put them in a big pan with the spices.

Extra Information

If you like you can save a few vegetables before pureeing them and serve the soup topped with them and a sprinkle of extra paprika: it looks very nice. As we say in Italian: “anche l’occhio vuole la sua parte”… “also the eye wants his share”!
