Alkaline Diet Recipe #26: Broccoli and Mint Soup
This soup is nothing short of fantastic, even if I do say so myself – You can enjoy it as a soup while cleansing, but you don’t have to wait til you cleanse to try it. I feed this to my husband and children on a regular basis, they love its flavor and texture. This is a great soup to have on days when you feel like something warm and rich and will by LOVED by my Ultimate Health followers who are looking for a really healthy and alkalizing soup.
It has muscle building broccoli and of course is chlorophyll rich.
***THIS SOUP IS 100% ALKALIZING
2-4 tablespoons Olive Oil
1 large onion chopped into chunks
1 clove garlic crushed
1-2 heads fresh Broccoli broken into florets. Use the stalks and leaves also.
3 cups Vegetable Broth (I make my own but you can also buy Pacific Brand with no mushrooms) or Alkaline water. Trust me, vegetable broth gives this an amazing flavor.
Large handful fresh mint leaves (and I mean large.)
Celtic Salt or pHlavor and Pepper to taste
Add 5 drops per liter of pH drops to bring the alkalinity up to pH 9.5
How to Make
Sauté the onions and garlic in the olive oil gently, so they become soft but not over cooked. Add the broccoli and mix in for a minute or 2. Add the broth, put the lid on the pan and bring the mixture to a simmer. As soon as the mixture is simmering, switch off the heat and with the lid still on, wait about 3 – 5 minutes (depending on how large the florets are until the broccoli turns a bright green. You will notice this softens the outside of the broccoli but does not cook the inside. We do not want to over cook the broccoli but we do want to make it easy to digest. (This is acceptable on a puree cleanse.)
Pour the mixture into the blender and add the mint, salt and pepper. Blend on high until well pureed. Serve and enjoy. Add more stock if too thick.
**You can add a cup of almond milk to this to make a creamy soup if you like.
It is an Outstanding Day!
