Green C Soup

September 18, 2019

green soupAuthor: Lily Mazzarella
Come and get your greens! Greens consumption tends to suffer in the fall as we move towards heavier foods and root vegetables, and away from summer's salads. This easy, delicious puree makes use of most of the green matter in your kitchen. Kale and broccoli contain more vitamin C than oranges, and spinach contains abundant beta-carotene. You'll feel light, bright, and well-nourished after eating this soup!

Ingredients

1-2 small green zucchini, roughly chopped (approx. 1/2 inch rounds)
1 small leek (white and light green parts), or small onion or 2 medium shallots, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 large handful kale leaves, de-stemmed and chopped
1 bunch spinach, chopped or 1/2 bag frozen organic spinach, thawed
2 cups broccoli florets, chopped
6-8 cups of broth
Pea Protein or Great Lakes Grass-fed Collagen
Pink Himalayan  salt or high quality sea salt
Freshly ground pepper

Directions

In a medium to large saucepan, sauté leeks/onions and celery, in olive or coconut oil over moderate heat, until they start to turn translucent.

Add zucchini & broccoli, and sauté until just the outside of the zucchini starts to turn translucent.

Add the spinach & wilt.

Cover with liquid & bring to a boil, then simmer for about 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Blend soup, using a hand blender or Vitamix (Vitamix gives the soup a silky texture).

Add salt & pepper to taste.

Add approximately 1 tablespoon of Collagen or Pea Protein for each cup of soup you consume.

Drizzle with olive oil or add a dollop of Mineral-rich Pesto, as desired.

Helps with sleep

I've been taking this in the evening before bed for about 6 months and it definitely helps me go to sleep more quickly, and also sleep more soundly through the night.
Digestible and effective.

The best B Vitamin I've tried

I'm very happy with this vitamin. Easily digestible, and I can feel the difference in energy levels when I'm taking this regularly.

I love this

I take this most mornings for both a mood and energy boost. I also take it if I’m feeling sluggish and want to enhance mental clarity. I highly recommend this blend.

Great

Received the gift certificate for my birthday from my daughter-in-law. I Had shopped in Farmacopia one year ago. Wanted to shop again. Due to Covid it’s hard to do. Searching for products online was easy. Purchasing items online was easy. Calling the store to make sure my order was ready was easy. Picking up my purchase at the store was easy. I will shop Farmacopia again. Looking forward to trying all the products I purchased.

Definitely helps

I’m not celiac but I am lactose & gluten intolerant. I avoid eating gluten always but sometimes I’m tempted by cheese. I recently ate some goat feta and I had no problems. I didn’t over unduly. Usually any amount of dairy causes me stomach pains and so much bloating. I don’t make a habit of taking this in a regular basis but it’s also come in very handy when I’ve gone out to eat or over to a friends (pre covid) and cheese has bean sprinkled on top and it’s always hard to remove it all.
