with the weather changing and becoming more cool, i felt the beginning signs of a cold coming on. it’s never great timing for a cold, but especially not with a work trip approaching. so, i took matters into my own hands and whipped up this alkalizing and detoxifying soup and gave that cold a TKO. one week later, i am happy to report, that cold didn’t stand a chance!
2 - 4 cloves of garlic (personal preference how many you use) 2 ½ - 3 cups vegetable broth 5 celery stalks, cut in thirds 2 cups broccoli florets ½ jalapeño pepper 1 bunch chard, roughly chopped 1 handful spinach 1 handful arugula 2 handfuls baby kale 1 lemon, juiced sea salt to taste
in a medium saucepan, add in garlic, celery, broccoli and jalapeño. cover and bring to a boil and cook for 10 minutes. remove from heat
in batches, start adding in some of the warm soup mixture to a blender. toss in a few handfuls of the lettuces + lemon juice. blend till smooth (adding in vegetable broth as needed to get desired consistency). continue until all ingredients are blended and salt to taste.
