After the extravagances of the weekend (somehow even in lockdown we manage to eat more!!! haha), this soup is what we need.

Made with some gut-friendly ingredients like fermented garlic (AKA black garlic), fresh ginger, miso paste and cumin seeds and topped with healthy fats from seed and extra virgin olive oil.

Spinach have also lots of health benefits: they are rich in fibers, are an excellent source of vitamin Kvitamin Avitamin C and folate as well as being a good source of manganesemagnesiumiron and vitamin B2Vitamin K is important for maintaining bone health and it is difficult to find vegetables richer in vitamin K than spinach.


  • 400 g fresh spinach
  • 1/2 head fermented garlic
  • 1/2 inch fresh ginger
  • cumin seeds and black pepper
  • 1 tbsp miso paste
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (or cashew milk or coconut milk)
  • salt

for topping

  • mix of seeds (pumpkin, sunflower, sesame)
