Okay I just made the most delicious carrot ginger soup that works so well into this January detox diet! I always feel it’s such a waste to throw out those carrot top greens because I never know what to do with them. Here’s a great recipe where you use them! Detoxers-feel free to post your recipes here so we can share what is working for us in the diet this week.
1 bunch (6-9 small to medium) carrots, the tops and the roots
1 ½ tsps better butter mixture
1 red onion diced
2 sprigs thyme
Marjoram, sea salt, black pepper
5 cups water
1-2 tsps grated ginger
Pull or pluck lacy leaves of the carrot greens off their stems. You shld have between 2-3 cups loosely packed. Wash, then chop finely. Chop carrots.
Melt the better butter mixture in soup pot. Add the carrot tops and carrots, diced onions, seasoning, grated ginger. Cook for several minutes, turning everything a few times. Add the water and the cover and bring to boil. Simmer for about 20 minutes.
Use immersion blender or transfer soup into blender, add water if necessary to achieve desired consistency.
It’s done! Delicious, filling and that tangy ginger flavor adds a nice kick to the soup. Enjoy!
