4 For Soup

Cold winter months demand warm bowls of soup and they can be especially comforting while we're cleansing. We kept this recipe super simple so it can be made quickly. Just kicking off your Love Cleanse? Wash and prep some veggies at the beginning of the week and use the peels, tops, ends with some high quality water to make your own veggie stock. Soak some beans overnight, cook, drain and store in the refrigerator. You'll have everything you need to create a comforting cup on the fly! 

  • 2 cups of Roasted or Steamed Veggie of Choice (a few of our favorites include broccoli, parsnips, butternut squash, and asparagus)
  • 2 cups of homemade Veggie Broth*
  • 1 cup of cooked white beans, soaked overnight
  • 1 TB of our Nightshade Free Curry Blend (included in your TLC Kit)
Combine beans, veggies and curry in blender (reserving a handful of the veggies for finishing garnish and texture). Pulse several times. Add 1 cup of broth and blend until creamy, adding more until desired consistency is reached. Add reserved veggies. The NSF Curry is really what makes this soup sing so don't hold back! 

Making your own vegetable broth while cleansing is important as most brands on the market contain nightshades in the form of tomatoes. If you're a home juicer, homemade broth is also a great way to use up the juice pulp. Simply strain through a fine mesh sleeve before cooking.
