How To Make This Recipe: Step-by-Step Instructions
In this step-by-step section, I'm going to show you how easy it is to make this simple one-pot detox soup recipe.
Step 1: Prep the Veggies
Firstly, cut your veggies in bite-size pieces, or in sizes that you prefer.
When making a cleansing or detox soup, it's best to use fresh, organic veggies and filtered/purified water, if possible.
Step 2: Combine The Ingredients
Secondly, add the prepped veggies and all remaining ingredients to a large pot.
Step 3: Stir The Ingredients
Thirdly, stir all the ingredients together until they are evenly distributed and covered in the broth/water.
Step 4: Simmer Until Cooked
Fourthly, simmer the soup uncovered until all the veggies are soft.
As the veggies are cooking, check the soup a couple of times and add a little extra water or veggie broth if needed.
If you do, you may need to adjust the seasonings to compensate for the extra liquid.
Taste and adjust the seasonings to your preference.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is This Detox Soup Healthy?
In my opinion, yes!
It's made with fresh, real food ingredients like beets, broccoli, carrots, onions, and garlic, all of which are good for you - and your liver!
Homemade soup is always going to be healthier than a store-bought soup especially when you can control the quality of ingredients.
For example, buying organic veggies and even the water you use.
Let's compare the ingredients to a popular store-bought canned vegetable soup:
- S.A.D. (Standard American Diet) Campbell's "Healthy Requests" Vegetable Soup Ingredients: Beef Stock, Carrots, Potatoes, Tomato Puree (Water, Tomato Paste), Enriched Pasta (Wheat Flour, Egg Whites, Niacin, Ferrous Sulfate, Thiamine Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid), Green Beans, Corn, Peas, Celery, Potato Starch, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Contains 2% or Less of: Tomato Paste, Salt, Potassium Chloride, Vegetable Oil, Dehydrated Onions, Flavoring, Spice, Caramel Color, Disodium Inosinate, Disodium Guanylate, Yeast Extract, Paprika Extract for Color, Celery Extract, Lactic Acid, Onion Extract.
As you can see, store-bought soups contain preservatives, MSG, flavorings, caramel color, and even high fructose corn syrup.
What Is The "Dr. Group Liver Cleanse Soup"?
This extremely healthy and nourishing plant-based soup recipe is from Dr. Group at Global Healing Center.
I wanted to share it because I just completed Dr. Group's Liver Cleanse Program last week.
In fact, this is the fourth Global Healing Center Liver Cleanse I've done over the past several years, and have always enjoyed the detox soup at the end of the cleanse.
Although the original recipe is perfect as is, I made a few minor changes to it by adding extra amounts of some of the veggies.
This liver detox soup recipe is made with ingredients and herbs that are naturally high in sulfur and glutathione.
Both of which help cleanse the liver of harmful chemicals and pesticides.
Do I Have To Follow The Liver Cleanse Program For The Soup To Be Beneficial?
No, you do not have to do the full "liver cleanse" program to make this recipe!
While I believe that periodic liver cleanses with Dr. Group's protocol are beneficial to keeping the liver healthy, you do not have to follow the liver cleanse program to enjoy this detox soup.
Because it is made with real food ingredients that specifically target liver health, it's an excellent soup to make as a nourishing meal anytime for overall liver support.
Karielyn's Expert Tips + Ingredient Substitutions
Here are some of my expert tips to make this recipe perfectly.
The best tip I can give you is to make sure you are using the purest ingredients to make this recipe.
Since this is a cleansing/detox soup, you wouldn't want to add any additional toxin burden to your body.
For example, pesticides from non-organic produce or tap water.
- Vegetables + Herbs - Try to buy organic, if possible to avoid pesticides.
- Water - The best water to use is filtered/purified water. For instance, I use a Berkey water filtration system for all my cooking and water needs.
Vegetables. Feel free to cut the veggies into whatever sizes or shapes you prefer, but the smaller the better because they will cook quicker.
Vegetable Broth + Water. As the soup simmers, additional vegetable broth or water may need to be added.
- Check it every 20 minutes or so and add extra if needed.
- After that, taste the soup and add adjust the amount of seasonings if you prefer.
In addition, make sure your veggie broth doesn't contain citric acid.
Lemon. I use freshly squeezed lemon juice since it's not pasteurized. However, store-bought organic lemon juice can be substituted.
Himalayan Pink Salt. This is my salt of preference, but it can always be substituted with sea salt.
