With green peas, celery, zucchini, leek, and fragrant fennel, this no-fuss summer soup is low in calories and loaded with vitamins and minerals. Fennel is particularly rich in vitamin C, vitamin A and beta-carotene, all of which are powerful antioxidants that can help protect cells against free radical damage.
Garlic and shallots also contain anti-inflammatory, antibiotic and antiviral agents that help maintain a strong immune system, so keep this soup as a soothing staple for recovery days, and any other time you need a little extra comfort.
