A Perfect Day of Clean Eating
The five soup recipes featured here are from the Soup Cleanse Cookbook
by Nicole Centeno, founder of Splendid Spoon, a plant-based meal delivery program based in Brooklyn, New York. With varieties such as rich and creamy eggplant tahini, a hearty green chili, and the light and refreshing lemon-fennel consommé, your taste buds are sure to be satisfied as your body benefits from every nutrient-packed spoonful. Each soup recipe makes four servings and could stand alone as a delicious, healthy meal. (Next up, try these nine bone broth-based soup recipes.)
Eggplant Tahini Soup
Eggplant and tahini go together like bacon and eggs, and who doesn't love bacon and eggs? Exactly. This easy recipe uses an immersion blender, which means less mess spooning soup into a blender and more spooning soup into your mouth. (If you can never get enough tahini, here are more creative ways to use the sesame seed paste that aren't just hummus.)
The green in this green chili comes from loads of fresh herbs—four different kinds, actually. The result is a gorgeous bowl of soup that warms you up and looks pretty while doing it.
Pear and Sunflower Seed Soup
Pear and sunflower seeds may not seem like the obvious ingredients for soup, but once you try this sweet and savory recipe, you'll wonder what else you've been missing in your life. (With warmer weather on the horizon, you'll want to try these refreshing chilled soups.)
Avocado Kimchi Stew
This creative soup is served at room temperature, and it can be whipped up in just a few minutes. Your gut will be happy with the kimchi, as fermented foods act like a natural probiotic source, and kimchi has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties as well.
A consommé might sound fancy, but it's essentially a broth-based soup that boils the ingredients (in this case, lemon, fennel, and onion) to extract and then devour its nutritional properties. Basically, this soup is both delicious and healthy. (Here's more on getting the most nutrients out of your food.)
