Healthy Food - Bouillon de Poireaux

The new year has begun - the perfect time to press reset and bring your body back into balance!

The Bouillon de Poireaux (leek broth) is THE beauty secret of the French: It detoxifies, provides important vitamins and supports your health and beauty from within.

Sulfides are also important antioxidants that protect the body from free radicals.

Leek is also a miracle weapon for the intestinal flora and the immune system, because it contains water-soluble fiber, which stimulates digestion and cares for the intestinal mucosa, as well as the plant substance allicin. This acts as a natural antibiotic in the body and eliminates negative bacteria in the intestine. Leek soup thus supports a balanced intestinal flora and this is the basis for a strong immune system

The dietary fibers have another advantage: they keep the blood sugar level stable and thus prevent cravings! A dish that belongs on the table much more often!

You need:

  • 8 leeks
  • 2 carrots
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 onion
  • 1 clove
  • 1 x 1.5cm piece of fresh ginger
  • 1 x 1.5cm piece of fresh turmeric
  • 4 sprigs of coriander or parsley
  • 1 tablespoon of coarse salt
  • 10 mixed peppercorns
  • Pepper from the Mill
  • Organic Lemon
  • Olive Oil

Here's how you prepare it:

  1. Wash the leeks well, dry them and cut them into pieces. Peel the garlic cloves. Peel the onion and add the clove. Peel and slice the ginger and turmeric.
  2. In a large saucepan, add 1.5 liters of water, add the coarse salt, peppercorns, whole garlic cloves, onion, leek, carrots, ginger, turmeric and herbs. Bring to a boil and simmer for 30 minutes.
  3. Taste the soup. Serve hot with a squeeze of lemon juice and some olive oil, if desired.

Bon appetit!
