Jeanette Hydes's Leek and Prawn syNbiotic Soup

This is great for the gut in so many ways – you have leeks which contain prebiotic fibres called inulin which feed good bacteria in the gut, plus lots of variety which promotes gut health too (from the flower peppers the ginger, and olive oil). PLUS the miso and tamari bring probiotic live bacteria to your gut too. Meals that have prebiotics AND probiotics are known as syNbiotics and this meal is a perfect example of that.
