They could be blended or have veggies in small pieces which gives our digestive system little rest from over working.
How this Broccoli Detox soup works
This Broccoli detox soup has broccoli (off course) florets that is a great natural broom for our colon. They help to keep a healthy bowel movement. More or less we all know Broccoli have high fiber, vitamin k, Vitamin C, folic acid, potassium etc. (well that’s why it called super food). Also Broccoli is a great source of Plant based Protein. One medium stalk of broccoli contains almost 4 grams of protein. And this soup is a great way to consume more broccoli in one meal.
This soup has Spinach and Celery. Both have high fiber and lots of nutrients. They also help to have a healthy gut.
A hidden Gem in this soup is CHIA seed. I say Hidden because it almost tasteless and don’t have strong smell like flax seed or spirulina. If you don’t say that you put chia seed in this soup no one can find out. Chia seed is a great source of plant based Protein. Only one TBSP of Chia seed has 2 grams of protein. Chia seeds also a natural laxative and has OMEGA-3. If you never try chia seed before, I highly suggest to add this in your diet. Chia seed can be added to both sweet and savory dishes. My most favorite way to eat chia seed is making pudding with granola, yogurt and fresh fruits.
I also add a small amount of potato in this Broccoli detox soup so it can give me more fuller feeling. You can avoid this or avoid any extra bread you thinking to eat with this soup (lol)
Personally I like Cilantro leaves to add with this but for this recipe I keep it out to make this soup more versatile. But you totally have freedom to add.
I also posted 2 Detox Green Smoothie which is Banana free, Dairy free, Gluten free & Vegan. You can Check them here .
