I mentioned in yesterday’s post that I made an awesome green, veggie-packed soup that was part of my clean eating program. I was bummed I didn’t write down the recipe because it turned out so great. Well, I went back and looked at the recipe that had originally inspired me, and I was able to pull the recipe together out of memory!
Inspiration from this recipe
So without further ado, I am going to keep this one short and sweet for you. Here is my recipe for Green & Clean Soup!
|Green & Clean Soup|| |
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 medium onion, diced
- 2 celery ribs, diced
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 green zucchini, chopped
- 2 cups green beans, chopped
- 2 cups broccoli
- ¼ cup raw almonds, chopped
- 3 cups chicken broth*
- 1 cup water
- dash of Thyme
- sea salt and black pepper
- *I ran out of chicken broth so had to use 1 cup of water. You can use 4 cups of chicken broth, or if you want to keep this meal vegan, use vegetable stock.
- In a medium soup pot, saute the onion. celery, and garlic in the olive oil for about 3 minutes.
- Next add in the zucchini, green beans, and broccoli and let saute together for 3-5 more minutes.
- Add in almonds, broth, thyme, and salt and pepper, and bring soup to a boil.
- Once boiling, cover pot, and reduce to simmer. Let simmer for 20 minutes.
- Use a blender to puree batches of the soup until all of the soup is blended.
- Serve warm with a drizzle of olive oil on top.

YES! The greener the better!
Yummy!! Do you think this would be good served cold too? I’m all about cooler things in the summer months 🙂

I’m not one for cold soup, BUT I do think it would probably be good cold! I’m with ya on the cooler things in the summer months, and I’ve already decided I’ll be changing up my plan for this Clean Program. It does give you the option of doing smoothies in the evening and not soup, but I’m just not feeling that a whole lot. I’ll be adapting it to fit my needs and will be posting about it probably sometime in the next week. xoxo to you.
This sounds wonderful! I’m usually all for cold foods in the summer but my office is freezing cold and some soup would be a great lunch option.

You will really enjoy this soup! I am with you though with the soup thing in the summer. The only soup that I can seriously tolerate in any temperature even when it’s hot out is chili. Is that strange?
Whoa, that is one healthy soup. I’ll have to try it sometime!

Hey Melanie! This looks delicious! On a side note, not sure if you know this, but I’ve been reading your posts on Feedly recently, since Google Reader is going away, and it has reposted this specific post over 20 times! Just wanted to give you a heads up as I wasn’t sure if I was the only one experiencing it. Have a good one!
Hi! Thank you for the heads up. I’m not sure if that has anything to do with me or if that is Feedly? Yikes! I am so computer illiterate I’m not sure how I would even look into that but I’ll have to try and check it out. Thanks again!
Hi like your blog…we struggle with similar health “challenges” but I’ve yet to find a good doc…please email me if you can…would love to know what your doc has trialling for you…I’m willing to try ANYTHING 🙁
Also, how many servings in this soup? And how much for one serving? One cup? more or less?
Hi Dee. I responded to your email! I hope you are doing okay.
The soup makes quite a few servings–I actually didn’t measure how many but I would say at least 5-6.
