Are you sick of eating salads for lunch in an effort to be healthier this year?
Do you long for comfort food that not only nourishes your body, but also your soul?
Then you might want to try this Delicious Detox Vegetable Soup.
There’s not much I enjoy eating more than a bowl of piping hot soup, brimming with colorful veggies in a flavorful broth. Even people who don’t normally crave soup (like I do) reach for this nourishing comfort food, especially when it’s cold outside.
So this detox vegetable soup is perfect to eat anytime. And, best of all, it’s loaded with colorful, antioxidant-rich veggies.
It even has one of my favorite healthful ingredients, apple cider vinegar. But you’ll never even know it’s there. It’ll be our little secret. 😉
You can add beans, shredded chicken or beef if you want a powerful protein boost. Or, just eat some beef jerky or, my personal favorite, a big blob of nut butter. However, even though I’m a meat-lover, I find this soup to be hearty and sustaining all on its own. So you may not find it necessary to add an extra protein source.
Just call it your meatless main dish.
Also, feel free to add extra veggies. If you have some leftover vegetables in the fridge, throw them in too. Make it your own!
The more, the merrier!
Also, I like to make this in my Crock Pot. But, you can also make it in a stock pot on the stove top. It turns out great either way.
Please note that the broccoli should be added towards the last 30 minutes of cooking time to prevent over cooking.
Nobody likes soggy broccoli. Unless you do, in which case you can add your broccoli sooner.
As you can see, this isn’t rocket science friends. It’s based on your personal preference.
I tend to like my veggies more crisp tender. But if you prefer mushy, then go for it!
Just keep in mind that the longer the veggies cook, the more the nutrients seep out.
But I figure if we’re comparing eating smushy, mushy veggies to eating no veggies, the mushies are gonna win every time
So, here we go with the recipe. I hope you enjoy it!
This Detox Vegetable Soup is full of fiber, antioxidants and deliciousness! It will fulfill your veggie requirements for the day (if you eat as much as I do), and help flush toxins out of your body.
