Asparagus-Celery Soup

Not only is this soup incredibly good, it’s also a great cure for bloating! Asparagus and celery are both great for eliminating excess water, and toxins from you liver.

I like to double the recipe and freeze half for a rainy day when I don’t feel like chopping!

Ingredients:

2 tbls coconut oil

1 leek, thinly sliced (only the white and light green parts)

2 celery stalks, chopped

2 medium garlic cloves, minced

1 small white-skinned, unpeeled chopped potato

4-5 cups vegetable broth

1 pound asparagus, chopped in 1 inch pieces

1/4 cup fresh basil leaves

Salt and Pepper to taste

Directions:

Melt coconut oil in a large pan cook leek and celery until tender (2-3 minutes).

Stir in garlic, cook for 1 minute.

Add potato, and 3 cup of broth. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat to medium fro 10 minutes.

Add asparagus, and cook for 3-5 minutes.

Add salt and pepper to taste.

Transfer to a food processor (I like the Vitamix), add the basil, and puree.

Do it in batches, adding the remaining broth to desired consistency, and salt and pepper to taste.
