-1 tbsp. avocado oil
-4 leeks, chopped and washed (about two cups)
-3 stalks celery, chopped
-3 cloves garlic, sliced
-1/2 cup sunflower seeds
-1 cup coarsely chopped Italian parsley
-4 cups vegetable stock
-4 cups coarsely chopped fresh spinach, packed
-Salt and freshly ground black pepper
-6 radishes, sliced then
-3 ounces chevre


Heat the oil in a large saucepan, and saute the leeks and celery until almost tender. Add the garlic and seeds, and saute for another five minutes, then add the parsley and stock.

Cover and simmer over low heat until the vegetables are tender.

Add the spinach and cook for just a couple of minutes.

Puree the soup until smooth, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Ladle into soup bowls and garnish each bowl with the radishes and chevre.

Note: Try blending chia seeds or flax seeds into your soups – it adds a creamy quality to it and boosts the health benefits!
