Alexandra’s healthy soup

Alexandra’s healthy soup

This is a genuine healthy soup: made with leeks, garlic, and onions for the pre-biotics (high in fibers), and with kale known to be high in nutrients and anti-oxydants (carotenoids, flavonoids, glucosinolates, calcium, magnesium, potassium and vitamin C, K …) I love it and I want more each time! Thank you, Alexandra, for this delicious recipe.

Alexandra suggests adding roasted pine nuts on top. Roasted crushed almonds or sunflower seeds are great too.

Good to know!

Alexandra is a pharmacist and is specialized in clinical and biological physio-nutrition. Read more on her website. Kale cabbage as well as all types of cabbages are excellent boosters for a successful liver detox. Alexandra tells me that this soup is a great idea to have after the holiday season dinner parties!

This soup can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 to 5 days if correctly sealed. You may also freeze it. In this case, Alexandra’s advice is to bring the soup out of the freezer a few hours before warming it up so that the nutrients are not altered due to a sudden high temperature heating.
