Felt the aftermath of the non-stop eating sessions of the just-ended holidays? Haven’t refused from drinks offered by friends? Feeling guilty? Why not resort to a detox soup? Feel great with this Hope with Green: Green Easy Soup Detoxifying
The past holidays caused you to eat a lot, to drink a lot and to sleep a lot (because of hangover). Everyone must have been through this. Once in a year celebrations are just unstoppable, aren’t they? But be reminded that you still have to be taking care of your health. I’m sure, you don’t want to spoil one or so days of the first week of New Year with being sick. Your health might get wasted during the holidays but you can always start a New Year with a new healthy lifestyle. Take this simple soup recipe that I am to introduce to you. A healthy vegetable soup recipe. Take note, a veggie soup recipe.
This recipe will yield 4 servings. Phase 3.
Ingredients for this Detox Soup:1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons diced onion
1 inch of fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
4 cups fresh broccoli, cut up
1/2 pound of fresh spinach leaves
3 parsnips, peeled, cored, chopped
2 ribs of celery, trimmed, chopped
A handful of fresh parsley, roughly chopped
Fresh water, as needed
Sea salt and ground pepper, to taste
Lemon or lime juice
Steps in making this Detox Soup:
- In a large soup pot, pour the olive oil in it, heat it over medium fire and sauté garlic, onion and ginger. Put the broccoli, spinach,parsnips, parsley and celery in, and stir a bit until the spinach is distorted. Add water just enough amount to drown the vegetables. The spinach will be cooked quite a bit so avoid adding more water. Maybe later, if you want the texture thinner.Heat to a high simmer, cover the pot, and reduce heat to a medium simmer. Cook it for fifteen minutes or so until the veggies are softened. Seems like one of those quick and easy soup recipes you’re familiar with.
- Blend the soup in an immersion blender to smooth it.
- Make a taste test and if it needs brightening, squeeze a citrus to it.
- Not really a grain-lover but eats, serve your soup with a spoonful of newly cooked rice in the center of your bowl- perfection!
