    I’m intrigued by your potato and leek soup that has no cream in it! On that note, do you maybe have a recipe for “healthier” croutons? Must one use a lot of oil or would a little bit do, too?

    Your green smoothie sounds intriguing. I’ve been on a smoothie kick and would love to try your variation with ginger in it!
