Green Goddess Soup 


  • 2 TBSP olive oil
  • 2 clove garlic, minced
  • 3-4 medium leeks, green parts trimmed and discarded, white parts washed well and chopped
  • 4 medium zucchini, ends trimmed and chopped (about 4 cups total)
  • 1.5 teaspoon salt (adjust as needed)
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups veggie broth (I like to use Better than Bullion seasoned vegetable)
  • 4 tablespoons fresh basil
  • 4 cups fresh spinach
  1. In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil and add the garlic, leeks, and zucchini. Stir in the salt and pepper. Cook, stirring often, 3-4 minutes until the leeks have softened.
  2. Add the broth, cover, and cook, stirring every once in a while, until the zucchini is super tender about 10 minutes. Add in basil and spinach and stir until wilted. Allow to cool for up to 20 minutes
  3. Transfer the mixture to a blender (can be made in batches) until the soup is pureed. Serve with toasted pita bread on the side (I like to use Josephs Oat Bran & Whole Wheat Pita Bread(found at Wal Mart)

Pita Bread 

  1. Cut 1 pita bread into 8 slices. Place on cookie sheet. Brush with a bit of olive oil and season ( I like to use Trader Joe`s Everyday Seasoning). Bake at 375 for 5 mins. Flip then cook for 5 more mins.
