White, Green and Red Soup

After an exciting visit to the Art Gallery I made this soup out of leftovers and things from the garden.


2 leaves radicchio, washed and sliced
2 leaves spinach, washed and sliced
Boiled potatoes, cut into small chunks
5 cherry tomatoes, cut in half
Sherry or red wine vinegar


Heat a heavy pot over a medium heat, add a little olive oil, then the potato chunks. Stir about. Add a little salt and pepper. Add the chopped radicchio and spinach leaves and stir to combine, put a lid on and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Boil the kettle and had about a cup of hot water. Add the cherry tomatoes, stir again and cook for another minute, just to heat through the tomatoes.

Serve in a warmed bowl adding a teaspoon of vinegar on top.
