I don't what it is about this winter but I'm craving soup all the time! There is just something so satisfying about these warm concoctions. Luckily, it's so easy to make your own soup at home and keep in the fridge or freezer for an easy meal.
This detoxifying green soup is quickly becoming a staple in my soup rotation because it's so delicious and so nourishing. I actually don't think it's possible to get more vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients or GREENS into a soup. All of the veggies, herbs, spices and almond milk come together for a perfectly creamy and green masterpiece. The spices, like cumin, also give this soup a slight spicy kick. I like to top it with Siete tortilla chips or nuts. So good and so good for you. Enjoy!
(Note: I use a slow cooker, but you can also make by replacing the slow cooker with boiling the vegetables for 20 mins)
