A Deliciously Filling, Homemade Cabbage Detox Soup
by Jeremy David Wilson
If you’re wanting to detox your body but you’ve heard horror stories about “feeling hungry” or “starved” while detoxing, then fear no more because I just made this pretty amazing, and very filling, cabbage detox soup in my own kitchen and I know it may be a tad sickening to hear (we are all looking to detox and flush our systems though, right?), but after eating a meal of this homemade Cabbage Detox Soup, the next morning I was feeling “completely flushed” and cleansed out!
Since I had such amazing results with it, I wanted to share the recipe with you, and I would greatly enjoy hearing your feedback on the following:
- How did you like the flavor?
- Was it filling for you?
- Did you feel like you just ate a hearty, healthy meal?
- Did you have any “body-flushing” effects the next day?
I’m about to share this awesome recipe with you (which I created in quantity to feed your whole family) and all I ask is that you leave a comment or two below with your personal answers to the four questions above.
So without any further ado, here’s the recipe for my homemade Cabbage Detox Soup:
- Measuring cups and/or a measuring pitcher
- Sharp chopping knife
- Cutting Board
- Large 16-quart Stockpot (a.k.a. “Stew Pot”)
- Vegetable Peeler
- Grater / Shredder
Ingredients Needed (shopping list):
- 1 Head Purple Cabbage (roughly cut)
- 1 Bunch Kale (roughly cut)
- 1/2 quart Raw Spinach (not cut)
- 1 full Broccoli Head, Stems included (roughly cut)
- 16 ounces Brussel Sprouts (not cut)
- 3 Large Carrots (chopped)
- 2 cups Fresh Green Beans (whole) (cut or snapped into pieces approximately 2 inches in length or shorter)
- 1 1/2 cups sliced Radishes (sliced)
- 1 full Bulb Anise – Stems & Leaflets included (sliced or roughly cut)
- 1 1/2 cups Chopped Parsley – Stems included (chopped)
- 8 ounces Shiitake Mushrooms (sliced)
- 1 large Red Onion (roughly cut)
- 1/4 cup Shredded raw Ginger Root
- 6 Serrano Peppers
- 1/2 cup Minced Fresh Garlic Clove (minced)
- 1/4 cup Hemp Seeds (whole or ground)
- 1/4 cup Chia Seeds (whole or ground)
- 1/4 cup Flax Seeds (ground)
- 1/4 cup Organic Quinoa (whole)
- 1/2 tsp 90,000 unit Ground Cayenne Pepper (ground)
- 1/2 tsp Nutmeg (ground)
- 1 tbsp Paprika (ground)
- 1/4 tsp Ground Coriander (ground)
- 3/4 tbsp Caraway Seeds (whole)
- 1 1/4 tsp Medium Ground Black Peppercorns (medium ground)
- 1 tbsp Sea Salt (ground)
- 5 quarts Filtered or Distilled Water
Now, how does this all come together? ….Very Simply!!!
Step #1 – In a large stew pot, bring five quarts of water to a light boil while beginning to prepare your vegetables and spices. Once it’s at a light boil, cover pot and reduce heat. (You do not want to actually boil the fresh produce as it will eliminate much of the natural nutrients that are vital in assisting to naturally cleanse and detox your body’s system).
Step #2 – Combine all your dry spices in one small bowl and set aside.
Step #3 – Roughly cut all of your vegetables and begin adding them to your hot water in the pot. Remember, do not boil vegetables, but rather keep them at a simmering steep and covered. You will want to add your tougher produce first (like cabbage, carrots, brussel sprouts, broccoli and anise bulb/stems, etc.) as they will take longer to soften, releasing their natural vegetable broth.
Step #4 – Once you have added ALL vegetables to the pot (keeping the heat at a steady, high simmer), then add all of your spices from the bowl you had previously set aside.
NOTE: Be sure to stir every time you add an ingredient.
Step #5 – Now that you’ve added all ingredients, stir it all in real good, make sure your heat is set just right to produce a heavy / high simmer, then cover and set your timer for 60-minutes. (Check it periodically to make sure your heat is still at a high simmer and NOT a boil. Also stir it periodically within the 60-minutes).
Step #6 – Once your timer goes off and the soup has simmered for at least an hour, stir then check to ensure that all the vegetables appear to be cooked (soft).
Step #7 – Remove from heat and let stand for an additional 15-minutes.
Step#8 – Stir and Serve! (Additional Sea Salt may be added to taste).
Step #9 – Enjoy!
Additional Note/Caution: Now this Cabbage Detox Soup can be highly effective in “cleaning out your system” so be prepared to make additional trips to the restroom over and above your normal body flow.
