Broccoli and Red Lentil Detox Soup


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 medium white onion (chopped)
  • 2 cloves of minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp of ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp of turmeric (powder)
  • 1/2 tsp of ground ginger
  • 1/3 tsp of ground cardamom
  • 1 1/2 cup of raw broccoli
  • 1/2 cup of red lentils (raw and rinsed)
  • 1 pinch of sea salt
  • 2 cup of water, filtered
  • 5 leaves of mint (510 leaves, optional)
  • 1 bunch of cilantro (optional)
  • 1 tsp red chili pepper (minced or flakes – optional and to taste)

Instructions

  1. Rinse lentils a few times and set them aside
  2. Add olive oil and saute garlic and onions over medium heat for about 1 minute in a small cooking pot. Add the spices (turmeric, ginger, cumin, and optional cardamom). Stir and add a splash of water to prevent burning.
  3. Add chopped broccoli, lentils, salt, and water to cover everything.  Additional water might be needed.
  4. Cover everything with the lid and cook for 8-10 minutes until lentils are tender and everything else is cooked.
  5. Add the herbs (mind and optional cilantro). Take off the heat.
  6. With a hand blender, blend the soup. Option to blend until smooth or to keep the soup slightly chunky.  Add a drizzle of olive oil and/or additional salt to taste—option to add water if too thick.
  7. Optionally, add red chili pepper powder or flakes
