Alkalizing Green Soup

As much as I love my Daily Green Smoothie when the temperatures drop I find myself craving something a little more warm and soothing. This alkalizing green soup has been part of my diet rotation for many years as it has so many health benefits and it is a wonderful way of getting in those green fibrous veggies that I love so much. 

In the same way I 'pimp' my smoothies I use this soup as a vehicle for so many nutritious dense superfoods, the version below uses a bone broth base, avocado, ghee and fresh ginger, turmeric and garlic, all super healing, great for boosting the immune system, and perfect for nourishing both body and mind.

I make this soup in a huge batch then keep it in mason jars in the fridge and the freezer, it is  wonderful on its own, or use it as a base to add chicken, fish or vegan proteins too for a more substantial meal. 

Alkalizing Green Soup

  • 3 cups broccoli
  • 3 cups kale
  • 3 cups zucchini
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 cups bone broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon cultured ghee (grass fed butter is great too)
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon grated turmeric (you can substitute for dried if needed) 
  • 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper 

Roughly chop the broccoli, kale and zucchini, then place in a large pan with the bone broth and the water. Steam until the veggies are slightly softened. 

Pour all of this into a blender (cooking the veggies in the bone broth ensure you keep all the nutrients) and add the avocado, ghee, ginger, garlic, turmeric and salt and pepper. Blend until smooth.
