Diet-Detox Soup

Whenever I go through a diet detox, like I'm doing now, I make this soup.  The only carbs it has is veggies, and the spices in it are great for de-toxing.  You could also switch it up into a tortilla soup by adding a dollop of sour cream and tortilla chips. 

  • Olive Oil
  • 6 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 cup of chopped onion
  • 1 cup of chopped turnip
  • 2 large carrots, cubed
  • 4 cups of chicken stock, I use free range organic
  • 2 large zucchini, chopped
  • 2 cups torn, fresh spinach
  • 1 pre-cooked rotisserie chicken from the store (Or make your own!)
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 2 tsp rosemary
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1 tsp cumin

For those of you were like me and didn't know...This is a turnip.  You can peel it with a carrot peeler before you chop it.

  • Heat olive oil in large pot over medium heat and add garlic and onion. Saute for 5 minutes.
  • Add turnip and carrots and saute another 5 minutes.
  • Pour in chicken stock and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, shred the chicken.  I only used white meat.
Shaundee really likes this part!

  • Add zuchinni and chicken and simmer for 5 more minutes.
  • Add spinach and spices and simmer for 5-10 more minutes.
