how to make it… (serves 2)

Roughly chop all ingredients. In a large (2 litre) saucepan, sauté onion leeks, garlic and celery in 2 tbsps cold pressed oil. When soft and translucent, add the vegetable stock and cabbage. Bring to the boil and simmer until cabbage is cooked but still al dente. Add the broccoli and simmer for another three minutes and then take off the heat. Add the raw kale and parsley. Whizz with a hand blender until smooth and creamy. Check for seasoning and add salt and pepper to taste. Freezes well or can be kept in the fridge for up to 4 days.
