Cleansing Green Soup Recipe For Fall

Did someone say comfort food? And no, we weren't talking about pot

pie. Since Autumn is often associated with hearty stews and baked carbs,

we thought we'd throw something a little healthier into the mix. Though we

don't recommend sitting seasonal carbs out indefinitely, we do hope you'll

take a healthier approach to their intake. Cue cleansing green soup recipe!

Spinach, cauliflower, asparagus, onion and yogurt. What could go wrong?

As we said in our last recipe, asparagus is great for your skin because it

contains vitamins A and E whose antioxidant properties prevent the

formation of free radicals. Spinach also has its pluses. This leafy green

vegetable is rich in nutrients and antioxidants. Spinach is loaded with

lutein, which keeps your eyes healthy and sparkling.

Trust us, you won't want to miss out on this hearty, veggie packed soup,

easily servable at any temperature. Sounds like a self-care appropriate

recipe to us!

Cleansing Green Soup Recipe

Serves 4-5

Ingredients:


Cleansing green soup recipe for fall

1 head cauliflower

1 bunch green asparagus

2 cups baby spinach

1 medium-large white onion

2 cups water

1 cup Greek yogurt (I like Fage)

Sourdough, gluten-free, or other toast of your preference

Juice of 1 lemon

Extra virgin olive oil, for pan

Himalayan or sea salt, to taste

Lemon zest, for garnish

Method:

Drizzle olive oil liberally into large pot and bring to medium-low heat.

While that's happening, dice onion. Add to pan. Allow to caramelize,

stirring every few minutes. This will take 5-7 minutes.

Keep heat at medium-low to avoid browning. Sprinkle with salt.

Rinse cauliflower and asparagus, trim, and chop into florets and 2-inch

pieces, respectively. Add to pot and increase heat to medium-high. Stir.

Cook for 5-7 minutes. Sprinkle with salt.

Add water to pot, reduce heat to medium-low, cover with lid, and allow to

simmer and steam for 10 minutes.

Transfer contents of pan (carefully) to a high-speed blender (I love my

Vitamix – just got it for my birthday) and blend until creamy. Add in raw

baby spinach and blend again.

Check consistency and add more water if desired, depending on how thick

you like it.

Check for salt and adjust if necessary.

Toast or grill bread in pan.

Transfer Greek yogurt to bowl and add in lemon juice. Whip with a fork or

whisk.

Serve soup garnished with a dollop of lemon yogurt, lemon zest, and grilled

bread.

Can be served warm, room temperature, or even cold.

Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 4 days, then transfer to freezer.
