I have a confession to make. I have a love affair with soups. They are so comforting, warming, and filling, especially on colder days! I prepped a soup on Sunday to have for my Monday soup post. It is a very green soup, packed with protein and healthy kale. It is part of the detox I am doing and I got the recipe from Rocco Dispirito’s cookbook, The Negative Calorie Diet. Here’s a link to check it out. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0062378139/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=beckoningharm-20&camp=1789&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creativeASIN=0062378139&linkId=443d99b8e5db505babbe2c01e7d1666a
The soup is called “Caldo Verde” or Mixed Leafy Greens with Chickpeas. Caldo verde is a traditional soup from Portugal. It means “green broth,” which I’m sure you are able to see how green it is from the picture! Rocco calls this his “hot smoothie.” I like that name! I’ve been doing hot smoothies, aka, soups, for the past couple months since my morning smoothies were too cold for me to drink with this cooler weather.
Every Monday, during the winter months, I try to post a new soup idea or recipe. Stay tuned for more! Also, comment if you have tried this soup before or are going to!
