Flush The Fat Away Vegetable Soup

Ingredients

  • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1″ cubes
  • 3 large carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 1 stalk celery, diced
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • pinch of kosher or sea salt, more or less to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans of navy beans, drained and rinsed (optional black beans)
  • 4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can of diced tomatoes (no salt added), *this is an optional ingredient
  • 4 cups baby spinach, loosely packed (optional 2 zucchini, sliced)
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil, optional, for serving (1/2 teaspoon per serving)

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients, except spinach and olive oil, to the slow cooker. Cover and cook on low 6 to 8 hours, or until the vegetables are tender. Add spinach, stir and continue cooking just until wilted, approximately 5 minutes. Serve and enjoy! (1 serving per night if doing the 3 Day Cleanse & Detox)
  • Tip: If you prefer a thicker soup, after 5 hours of cooking, simply remove 1 cup of soup, along with ingredients, mash ingredients with a fork, return to the slow cooker, stir and continue cooking 1 to 3 hours. When serving, drizzle a little (optional) olive oil over each bowl of soup.
  • Note: Olive oil helps the body absorb nutrients more efficiently and supports a healthy digestive system.
  • Stove-top Method: Follow the same instructions above for prep, cover, and simmer until veggies are tender, approximately 2 hour. Stir every 15 minutes to prevent sticking. Add spinach at the end of cooking time, remove from heat, cover and allow spinach to wilt before serving.
