Optional – stir though 1 cup of cooked quinoa, millet, brown rice or freekeh before serving. Simmer the soup long enough to warm it again.

Method – Gently saute the onion, coriander stems, garlic and ginger in the oil until just getting soft. The add the spices and cook for about a minute until they start to stick. Now add the mushies and stir in the spiced oil. Add the rest of the ingredients in now including the coriander leaves – and stir well. Bring to the boil then drop to a simmer until the leafy greens have softened – about 3-5 minutes. Taste for seasoning. You can blend this soup to make it smooth, or leave it as is and serve it chunky.
