Super Greens Soup

This section of our website is for recipes and tips shared by Ninja users, so they have not been tested by us and we do not have nutritional information for recipes.

We all know that we should eat more vegetables but it can be hard to fit them in our diet. Personally I love cauliflower, courgette and spinach, but they have a reputation for being boring, so I decided to jazz them up in this super greens soup.

The added pesto really takes this soup to the next level and it is delicious served with seeds and a slice of bread.

  7. Add in the pesto (and nutritional yeast if using).

  8. Blend the soup by pulsing it gently. You may need to blend it in batches depending on the size of your blender.
