Immune Boost Soup

Recipe from Ilona Napravnik CNP

Serves 4


1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 clove of garlic, coarsely chopped
½ small onion, diced (about ¼ cup)
1 small carrot, cut into rounds
½ teaspoon paprika
¼ teaspoon ground coriander
1 small head broccoli, trimmed and coarsely chopped (about 5-6 cups)
4 cups water **
Pinch of salt
Fresh ground pepper to taste


  1. In a medium pot, heat oil on medium.  Saute garlic, onion, carrot, and spices for 3-5 minutes, until soft.
  2. Trim and coarsely chop broccoli.  Add broccoli and water to pot and simmer, covered, on low for 15 minutes (until broccoli is soft).
  3. Uncover and cool for 5-10 minutes.  Place in blender and puree until creamy.
  4. Season with salt and pepper.

 **for an extra immune boost, instead of water use alkalizing broth, as follows:


One cup of the following, cut in small pieces – organic celery, green beans, zucchini and potatoes (all organic). 


1) Bring to a boil for 3 minutes in 1 litre of water. 
2) Simmer for 20 – 30 minutes. 
3) Strain & throw away vegetables
