Brussels Sprouts Soup with Leek and Spring Onion
If you like sprouts then you will like this soup. This is a great soup to have in the winter especially in the build up to Christmas. You can have this a starter or a main meal. Sprouts have a sweet, nutty flavour. I added leeks and spring onion in the soup to complement the sprouts and have more depth to the flavour.
I used onion and garlic powder for extra flavour and it is actually a thickening agent for the soup. If you are watching your weight then I would advise you use garlic or onion powder for your gravy and sauces.
