Happy healthy detox meal to you! Enjoy! Let me know how you liked the taste as well, I ask because I like normally broccoli but sometime its taste has ruled the soup. Some do not like coriander and that is fine, you can leave it aside and add some sour cream at the end or if you are like me, an avocado fan, I will add it as well. the leek gives always a really special taste that in my case I enjoy very much together with the lemon zest and the black pepper. You can spice it up as you like as well, just take care of the salt.
