Recipe for Green Soup

October 18, 2006 0 Comments

A customer asked me for the recipe for green soup that I mention on the Osteoporosis dvds so I’m going to start a recipe section in this blog. Although my recipes are not the exact kind.

The soup is really good for you, alkalizing, and rich in the magic of green growing stuff, and it tastes good to me. I have it almost every day, either with lunch or dinner. I make enough for 4 servings at once.

I go to the Farmer’s Market every week and buy greens. My favorites are spinach, parsley and kale. Then broccoli, zuchinni and cauliflower which is classified as a green even though it’s white.

So I put a big pot half-full of water on to boil, then I throw in a chopped onion, lots of garlic, a handful of each greens, some zuchinni, some broccoli and some cauliflower. You can add carrots, tomatoes, mushrooms or anything you like. Now the pot is full to the top.

Then I put in some spices – I use Trader Joe’s 21 seasoning salute, Maca powder, perhaps some curry powder for a change, salt and pepper. I bring it all to the boil with the lid on, then lower the heat a lot for about ten minutes until it’s all tender.

Then I put half of it at a time in the blender and liquify it.

That is about 4 servings of soup for me. I often make it creamier at the end by adding a coconut cream to the serving bowl. Or I add Bragg’s Liquid Aminos instead.

Somehow it tastes a little different each time but anyway I don’t get bored with it because I’ve trained myself to eat the same thing often. I think of food as nourishment not adventure. But  I am usually really happy with the flavor and comfort of the soup. I think it’s the color that puts people off but I’m used to it now.

Well, this is exciting! I will share some more of my recipes off and on and please do send me any that you would like to contribute.

Eat your greens this winter and stay healthy,
