This recipe makes: 3 SERVINGS
Prep time: 10 MINUTES
Cook time: 20 MINUTES
30 MINUTE MEAL
Ingredients you will need:
1 medium zucchini - sliced or chopped
1 large broccoli crown - chopped
3 large carrots - peeled & sliced or chopped
1/2 red bell pepper - sliced or chopped
4 cups of vegetable broth
1 cup full-fat coconut milk
1 (2 inch) nub of ginger - peeled and grated
1 tsp ground turmeric
2 Tbsp lime juice
2 Tbsp coconut aminos or gluten-free soy sauce
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/3 cup white rice
**If you add rice, like I do in my soup, it’s a great source for resistant starch, which is crucial for efficient digestion. Rice is neutral (not acidic), so by adding it to soups it helps comfort your stomach.**
Directions are super simple!
Add everything to a pot, cover it, and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat and cook 15 to 20 minutes, or until the vegetables have reached desired doneness.
Crockpot - set it and forget it!
I love to make soups in the slow cooker. Add everything you want and let it simmer until desired doneness.
If you like garlic and onions you can really make this soup a hit!
Add ½ of a chopped yellow onion and 3 to 4 cloves of garlic.
Want more veggies? Go for it!
Add as many of your favorite veggies as your heart desires, your body will love you for it.
1 or 2 stalks of celery - sliced or chopped
1 crown of cauliflower
1 sweet potato
1 can of green beans
Need a grain free option?
Don’t add the white rice. Instead consider adding potatoes or quinoa!
Need more proteins (not vegan or vegetarian)?
Add chicken bone broth instead of vegetable broth
Add 1 shredded or chopped chicken breast (I suggest cooking the chicken breast thoroughly before adding it. I slow cook my chicken the night before or if I’m in a pinch, I’ll boil it while the slow cooker is simmering my veggies and stock). You can also add black beans or garbanzo beans.
I hope this soup fills your belly with warmth and builds up your immune system.
