Making it into a soup is a combination of flavors that are divine. Light, low calorie, and nutrient dense, this rich green soup can be whipped up in under 15 minutes and made in small quantities.
Whether you are following Dr. Fuhrman, Weight Watchers, Paleo, vegan, gluten free/grain free, this soup is a winner and will help you keep warm, healthy, and satisfied. On a cold fall night, I like to start every dinner with soup. However, since this soup doesn't cook on the stove, it is great for hot weather too since you won't be heating up the kitchen. Pin it right now so you will have it when you need it!! Pin It
This is how I came up with this soup.
I had spinach and garlic sauté left over from last night's dinner. I simply took the leftovers ( spinach and garlic sauté) and added some vegetable broth, whizzed it in my Nutribullet ( which I love) till smooth and in seconds I had soup- I heated the soup, dusted it with some nutmeg ( or you could use curry powder which has nutmeg , cloves, cinnamon etc) and licked the bowl clean. It was delicious.
You can make this soup for one
No need to make an entire pot of soup if you are the only one eating it! Simply make the spinach and add the amount of broth you desire to the Nutribullet!
Another Way to Add More Healthy Greens to Your Diet-
We know we should be including more greens in our diet because of their amazing alkalizing health benefits. Greens contain the pigment chlorophyl which gets its energy from the sun and passes it on to us! Greens are important body detoxers ( body cleaners) as well. It doesn't get much greener than this soup!
1 very large package of organic baby spinach ( most packages are pre-washed)
6-8 cloves of fresh garlic, peeled and pressed
olive oil or coconut oil spray
2 cups ( or more if desired) of vegetable broth
nutmeg or curry powder to taste
Optional: Himalayan salt to taste
|I used a giant size container of organic baby spinach from BJ's ; it cooks way down|
Spray a large skillet with olive oil. Turn the burner on low and add pressed garlic to the skillet . Saute for a minute and then add the organic baby spinach and cover . Allow to the spinach to begin to wilt. Stir well and remove from stove.
Put sauteed mixture ( spinach and garlic) and vegetable broth into the Nutribullet or blender. Whizz until smooth. Pour soup into a saucepan to heat. Serve in bowls dusted with nutmeg.. ( serves 3-4)
Why I love my Nutribullet:
- It is small, yet powerful
- I make my smoothie and drink it from the same container ( no mess) and I can take the container in the car with me..
- I purchased it a year ago and use it everyday for a multitude of uses
- It can handle nuts and seeds
- It is convenient because of the its small size and ease of using
- I use this instead of my Vitamix ( which I loved) 90% of the time
- It is a great value for the money $99 or less
- The large container goes right into the dishwasher
- It is small enough to take with me when I travel
- Don't confuse the Nutribullet with the Magic Bullet. This is much more powerful
I love them both. If you are wondering about purchasing a Vitamix or a Nutribullet.. you may want to check out the Nutribullet.. I[ve been thrilled with mine ...and it's so much less expensive. However, if you are a large family and need to make quantity- check out the Vitamix
