So Why is it a “Detox” Vegetable Soup?
♥Feeling bloated, run-down, sick or just want to nourish your body? Make this soup! All of the ingredients are meant to help pull out the bad and fill you up with good! I always make a big pot to eat all week! So good!
Carrots: Beta-caritene helps balance hormones and gives your skin a glow. The fiber will balance blood glucose levels and help lowering cholesterol.
Celery: Loaded with nutrients! Cleansing properties help with digestion, gets rid of excess water weight and can help curb sugar cravings. Boom!
Kale: Super concentrated vitamins and antioxidants and is a natural anti-inflammatory.
Cauliflower: Contains Indole-3-carbinol, a phytonutrient that is shown to aid the liver in detoxing the body.
Garlic: Supports liver enzymes. Detoxes the body. All natural anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-viral.
Beans: Fiber for the win! Keeps your digestion clean and “pulls out” the bad stuff 🙂
Bone Broth: Make sure it’s the real deal. Supports immune health with tons of mineral. Collagen and other natural compounds help reduce inflammation and heal your gut lining.
You can add organic chicken breast to up the protein level or make it vegetarian by swapping out bone broth for vegetable stock.
- 4 carrots, chopped
- 4 celery stalks, chopped
- 1 bunch of kale, chopped
- 2 cups cauliflower
- 1 whole white or yellow onion, diced
- 3-4 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 Tbs olive oil
- 2-3 Tbs no salt seasoning like 21 Salute or Italian
- 1 cup uncooked beans (you can get a mix of lentils or whatever kind you prefer)
- 64 oz bone broth or stock
- In a large pot over medium sauté the chopped onion in the olive oil until translucent
- Add garlic and stir and stir an additional minute
- Add all remaining ingredients and bring to a low simmer
- Cover and let simmer for about 90 minutes or until beans are cooked (you can also use cooked beans if short on time)
- Add additional salt, pepper or seasoning as desired and serve!
**Option to add chicken: Add about 2lbs of raw, bone-in chicken breasts. In this case, you will want to keep it at a very low simmer for 2-3 hours or until the chicken falls off the bone easily with a fork. Once it is cooked, pull the chicken and remove bones.
