  • 1 Leek
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 0.5 avocado
  • salt optional


  • Put water to boil in a medium pan.
  • Rinse the leek a first time, then chop it. As you do so you may find extra dirt at junctures of stems. Rinse a second time. Peel the carrot and chop it as well.
  • Add the vegetables to the boiling water. There should be just enough water to cover them. Too much water may dilute nutrients. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes with a lid on.
  • Cut the avocado in half, then peel the skin. Place it in the center of the plate, slice it thinly. 
  • Drain the vegetables, add them to the plate around the avocado. Finish by juicing a lemon and pouring it on top, along with olive oil. Salt optional.
