Detox soup

Just a quick recipe, It's  really easy, it 's just the thing for a light supper for two.

Serves 2
300 g floury potatoes
1 small onion
2 tsp butter
400 ml  vegetable stock
2 tbsp. flaked almonds
1 small handful of rocket
salt to taste
white pepper
70 g whipping cream

Peel, wash and dice the potatoes. Peel and dice the onion. Melt the butter in a saucepan, and fry the onion in it until translucent.
Add the diced potato and the stock, cover, and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
Meanwhile, brown the almonds lightly in a dry frying pan without fat until golden.
Remove from the heat and set aside on a plate.
Wash the rocket, remove the tough stems and cut the rest into strips.
Puree the potato soup, with a miniprimer, in the saucepan. Season to taste.
Add the strips of rocket to the soup.
Whip the cream stiffly and fold it into the soup.
Scatter with the almonds before serving.

It might not sound like a detox soup, with the cream, but the potassium in the potatoes and the aspartic acid in the rocket make it a bit diuretic.
Soups always help flush out the kidneys.
(I hope that hasn't made it less appetizing).
