Detox Bean Soup
We love soup at Go2Kitchens and this detox bean soup is so delicious, you won’t even realize how healthy and detoxifying it is! It’s chock full of vegetables which will give your body lots of vitamin C, beta-carotene, and is super anti-inflammatory. You’ll get your plant protein and fiber from the organic garbanzo beans in this soup. The turmeric is also healing to the body because of its amazing anti-inflammatory power. Lastly, the full-fat organic coconut milk (in a can) contains medium-chain fatty acids that are easily absorbed and can help lower your cholesterol!
This recipe is easy to make vegan, just omit the cheese and use vegetable stock in place of the chicken stock. As usual, we recommend using organic ingredients when possible. You are going to love the flavors of this detox bean soup and we hope it becomes a regular dish in your home!
