Cleansing Green Veg Soup!
What can be better than a bowl of vegetable soup on a nice sunny day? I love to try new soups and make them my own recipe because I like to change a bit and add the foods that I have in my refrigerator.
Her is a recipe from our ” Shaklee Naturally ” and you can add whatever you want and make your own. Enjoy!
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 yellow onion
4 cloves garlic
1 small head of broccoli (2 cups florets)
1 zucchini, diced (2 cups diced)
Green cabbage (2 cups shredded)
2 stalks of celery, diced
6 cups of water
½ tsp dried basil
½ tsp dried parsley
¼ tsp dried thyme
2 bay leaves
10 oz baby spinach or kale, roughly chopped
½ cup parsley
Juice of one lemon, about 3 tablespoons
½ teaspoon black pepper
In a large soup pot, saute onion and garlic in 1 tablespoon coconut oil over medium heat until onions are translucent, about 3-5 minutes, stirring
occasionally so the garlic doesn’t burn.
Add dried parsley, basil, pepper, and thyme, and stir for 1 minute. Add remaining veggies and water, plus bay leaves.
Cover, bring to a low boil, and reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
Turn off heat and add baby spinach or kale. Stir to incorporate and cover the pot with the lid to let wilt, about 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a blender or food processor, add avocado, lemon juice, and a ¼ cup of broth from the pot and blend until smooth.* Stir the avocado and lemon mixture into the broth until completely incorporated, as well as ½ cup chopped fresh parsley.
Taste and season with additional pepper if necessary. Serve hot!
Please, I would love to hear from you!
Have a wonderful day,
