Good green soup

I came up with this simple soup after many a conversation about how we could get more greens into the day. Why not drink green soup for a snack? We spend a fortune on green juices these days. Why not make our own home made version for much cheaper price?

Bring this soup in a jar and drink it – hot or cold, mid-morning or mid-afternoon.

Popeye would be proud.



– 1 tbsp olive oil
– 1 large onion, finely chopped
– 1 clove garlic, minced
– 2 stalks celery, finely chopped
– 3-4 cups fresh or frozen spinach/kale/swiss chard/broccoli/ brussels sprouts/peas.
– 4-6 cups of chicken stock
– Salt and pepper to taste
– Fresh herbs – basil, parsley, dill.

Sautee onion, garlic, and celery in olive oil until softened. Add the greens and stock, bringing to a boil. Lower heat and cook until vegetables are soft. Add more stock to get the consistency you like. Season with salt and pepper, and the herbs. Cool and puree.

So what do you think?
