Ingredients Needed

How to Make Detox Vegetable Soup

  1. In a Dutch oven or large pot, heat the oil over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the onion, carrots, and celery, then sauté for 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  4. Add the bell pepper, vegetable broth, coconut milk, and chicken to the pot. Stir well to combine and bring the mixture to a boil.
  5. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for about 20 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked.

  7. Add the kale to the soup and simmer for 3-4 minutes or until the greens have wilted.
  8. Return the shredded chicken to the soup and add fresh cilantro, tamari, and lemon juice. Give it one final stir and enjoy!
