Weight Loss Soup


This Weight Loss Soup has all kinds of spring vegetables and spices, like garlic, ginger, cayenne, and turmeric, which will help boost your metabolism and fight off spring colds. A delicious, light, yet filling soup that matches a low-carb diet. Perfection!

Start with the broth. Sauté the aromatics in a little olive oil until they start to release their fragrance and become translucent, this takes about 20 minutes. Then add the spices, broth, pureed tomatoes, and a splash of mild vinegar and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook gently for 45 minutes. Once ready, strain the broth. Use it right away, or keep it in a mason jar in the fridge. Alternatively, transfer to a freezer-safe container and freeze until needed. To make the soup, bring the broth to a simmer and add all the vegetables and mushrooms except for the cabbage. Cook gently until the veggies are tender, then stir in the cabbage and remove from the heat. Let the soup sit for a few minutes before serving. Ladle the soup into bowls and top with a sprinkle of cheese. Enjoy!

Steps to make Weight Loss Soup


Make broth: Saute aromatics


In a large soup pot, heat 3 tablespoons olive oil and add the diced onion, 4 chopped celery stalks, 5 chopped garlic cloves, sliced fresh ginger, 2 crushed peppers, and 2 bay leaves. Sauté on medium-low, stirring often, about 20 minutes. Don’t let the aromatic mixture brown or burn, just let it soften and release its juices.


Add remaining ingredients for broth


Add 1 teaspoon turmeric, 2 tablespoons paste, 64 ounces chicken broth, 1 cup pureed tomatoes, and 1 tablespoon mild vinegar to the pot. Add 1 ½ teaspoons salt and black pepper to taste. Mix well and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer, cover, and cook gently for 45 minutes. Taste and adjust the seasonings if needed.


Strain broth

Strain the broth and store it in the refrigerator or freezer until needed.


Heat broth


In a pot, bring 8 cups of the prepared broth to a simmer.


Add vegetables and mushrooms


Add in ½ cup diced onion, 1 cup sliced carrots, 1 cup sliced celery, 1 cup diced winter squash, 1 cup diced zucchini, 1 cup green beans, 1 cup cauliflower or romanesco florets, and 1 cup mushrooms and bring to a boil.




Reduce the heat to low, cover, and gently simmer for 20 minutes. The soup should barely be at a simmer. Stir once or twice through the cooking time.


Add cabbage


Stir in 2 cups shredded cabbage or leafy greens of choice. Remove the soup from the heat and let it sit for about 5 minutes before serving.



Ladle into bowls and serve hot with a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
