Maybe I have been watching too much tv, but I felt a bit like a master chef yesterday. I am doing a soup cleanse this week. I made 4 soups yesterday and they are all phenomenal. I’ll share the green monster with you today.
1 bunch kale
1 bunch spinach
1 large or 2 med (about 1 1/4 lbs) sweet potato
2-4 garlic cloves
1 tsp fresh thyme
8 fresh sage leaves
2 cups water
2 cups broth
Saute onion in 1T olive oil 5 min. Turn to low and add garlic and thyme. Stir occasionally for about 20 min until onion caramelizes.
Meanwhile, peel and cube sweet potato, remove ribs of kale. Add to a pot with 2 c water, sage and 1/2 tsp salt (optional). Boil 10 min. Add spinach and and onion mix and cook another 10 min.
Use an emersion blender or puree in blender/food processor until smooth. Top with a squeeze of lemon if desired and serve hot.
I honestly didn’t think this would be good, but yall, it’s amazing! When doing a cleanse of any type it’s important to drink plenty of fluids and use organic ingredients as they are less contaminated with toxins. I got 26 organic, whole food items for $50 so no lame excuses, just do it!
