Detox Super Soup  

Yet again I’m about to embark on another detox journey and in preparation I’m eating as clean as possible. I like to include lots of soups, broths and juices which are high in nutrients which can give me the best results.  Even if you are not doing a detox it is important to give your digestion a break, so here is homemade special recipe full of wonderful ingredients.

If the summer seems to hot for soup then just cool it down a bit and drink it lukewarm; the spices inside are great for your gut, skin, immune system and give you the required energy you need.  I try to pack in as much as I can and simmer it for a few hours.


Ingredients:

  • Kombu
  • Lemongrass
  • Ginger, Galangal, Turmeric, Garlic
  • Shallots, Thai Basil
  • Cabbage, Celery
  • Reishi / Shiitake mushroom
  • Thai Chilli, whole Lime
  • Pumpkin
  • Black pepper and coconut oil

Method:

  • Peel chop and dice roughly
  • Lightly fry the ingredients first to release some of the aromas
  • Add in filtered water, just enough to cover the veggies, you can add more in later
  • Simmer on low until everything is nice and soft
  • Strain and only keep the liquid


Enjoy!!

    Looks good. I’ll have to try it. I see the jars. Do you can it for later ease? Also, some of your ingredients aren’t easily found at a general grocery store. Where do you find Kombu and Galangal.
