Protein-rich Emerald Soup

June 01, 2016

protein rich soupAuthor: Lily Mazzarella
This savory, silky soup is a great way to drink your vegetables, while keeping your blood sugar balanced and your whole system fueled. Liquid meals remove burden from the digestive tract, freeing up resources for repair & restoration in your body. Unlike green juice, green smoothies & soups maintain fiber content & allow for the addition of a protein source, like grass-fed collagen or pea protein. They are also “warming” to the GI tract, and more digestible than juices for many.


1-2 small green zucchini, roughly chopped (approx. ½ inch rounds)
½ small onion or 1 medium shallot chopped
1 bunch spinach or ½ bag frozen organic spinach, thawed
1/2-1 avocado
1 handful mixed green herbs: parsley, cilantro, basil (optional)
1-2 c broccoli florets, chopped (optional)
6-8 cups of Detox Broth &/or water + Pea Protein or Grass-fed Collagen Hydrosylate
Himalayan pink salt or high quality sea salt
Nutmeg—preferably whole with a grater, or powder
Freshly ground pepper


In a medium to large sauce pan, sauté onions in olive or coconut oil over moderate heat, until they start to turn translucent.

Add zucchini & broccoli, & 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.

Turn off heat & add chopped avocado & herbs, if utilizing.

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

Add salt & pepper to taste. Grate 3 strokes of nutmeg into the soup & stir (use just a small pinch if powdered).

Add approximately 1 tbsp of Collagen or Pea Protein for each cup of soup you consume. Drizzle with olive oil or add a dollop of pesto as desired.

I take this daily to help ward off cold and flu, and take extra after a wine night! Good price for this product.


I made Lily's Recipe for the turmeric paste and we are both having a spoonful every Morning.
Thank You

Asolutely delicious

I swore by the Radical Immune Powder until I tried this one. It is an amazing addition to almost every hot beverage and is a great addition to smoothies, or turning my hot chai/coffee into an iced treat. Fantastic blend.
