Courgettes are incredibly low in calories and the fibre in the skin helps burn fat, so if you are looking to have a bowl of ‘low-cal’ ‘detox’ soup, then this recipe is your new best friend.
First, melt the coconut oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Add the chopped celery, courgettes and radishes and fry for 5 minutes. Next, add the vegetable stock and coconut milk, simmering over a medium-high heat for 10 minutes. Add the dried sage and cayenne pepper and stir for 3 more minutes.
Either whizz to a purée in a food processor or blender, or serve straightaway and garnish with finely sliced fresh sage, if using.
