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
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.
