Detox Broth Soup


Having just come back from an all-inclusive in Mexico, a detox soup was in oder. What I love about this recipe is the healing broth is just the backbone and it gives you the ability to create your favorite soup. Usually I add cauliflower, rice noodles, kale, and chickpeas. But we are leaving this weekend and I had portobello mushrooms and spinach to use so I substituted the cauliflower and kale for the other veggies. Both options are yum yum yum.


Tip: The turmeric doesn’t only turn these onions a beautiful yellow hue, it will turn your nails, skin and cutting boards yellow too. So I always make sure to have spare disposable gloves and a plastic cutting board to us when handling this spice.


If your taste buds like it spicy, feel free to add an extra teaspoon of each spice.
