Vegan Creamy Green Vegetable Detox Soup

Vegan Creamy Green Vegetable Detox Soup

One of my favorite ways to get enough greens is to indulge in this vegan creamy detox vegetable soup. It is not only delicious, but super healthy, filling, and easy to make.

This is one of those soups that you will make so many times you won’t need to follow the recipe. I know it has onions and garlic, a few common spices, coconut milk, and my favorite vegetables: cauliflower, broccoli, and spinach. Most of the time I add a whole head of broccoli and cauliflower to sauteed onions and garlic. Add water, vinegar, let it cook until tender, add coconut milk, a whole bag or bunch of spinach, pure, and that is it! Can’t be easier, faster and simpler.

I call this delicious soup “detox” because the vegetables are not starchy making it perfect as a light dinner. Broccoli and spinach are high in protein, so if your goal is to build lean muscle and lose body fat you only need to include the right amount o protein to fit your macros. But if you want to build muscle, add a potato (regular or sweet potato), or some rice along with the protein.

My favorite protein is baked tofu, seasoned with salt, pepper and paprika. I also LOVE adding cooked cannellini beans! It adds so much creaminess, and its flavor blends beautifully with the soup.
