This warm and satisfying Veggie Soup makes for a great Detox lunch, especially during the winter months.
1 onion chopped
6 garlic cloves minced
2 celery sticks finely chopped
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon sweet paprika
1 14 oz can crushed tomatoes
1 can chickpeas 14 oz, drained and rinsed
4 cups 1 quart vegetable broth
Salt + pepper to taste
7 oz baby spinach 200 g, about 2 handfuls
1. In a large pot, heat coconut oil over medium heat. Add chopped onion, minced garlic, and chopped celery and cook until onion becomes translucent (reduce heat if they start to brown).
2. Add spices (cinnamon, cumin, cayenne pepper and paprika) and cook for about one minute, stirring.
3. Add crushed tomatoes, chickpeas and broth (chickpeas should be just covered by the broth - if they're not covered, add just enough water to cover them). Stir to combine. Bring to a gentle boil, reduce heat and simmer for 45 minutes.
4. Remove soup from the heat. Using a potato masher, mash some of the soup directly in the pot. Stir in spinach and let it cook through the heat of the soup for a couple of minutes until wilted. Adjusted salt and pepper if needed and serve!
Serve right away. Store any leftovers in the fridge in a sealed container.
