THE ESSENTIALS / KITCHEN SINK SOUP

Words Mia Rigden

We all have those weekends (or weeks, months, let’s be real) were we overdo it a little—I’m a nutritionist but also a human, so yes: it happens to me too. This soup is like a good friend or a warm hug; she’s always there for me when I need her and makes me feel infinitely better about life. I like to make this in big batches and freeze leftovers for those Sunday nights when I feel like I need to hit the reset button. It’s also the perfect meal for the RASA Challenge, my signature whole foods detox program.

THE ESSENTIALS / KITCHEN SINK SOUP

This recipe has an element of “choose-your-own adventure” and is an excellent way to make use of almost-soiled produce headed for the compost bin. Literally, just rough chop and toss in the pot. The method is simple: dump, stir, blend.

One bowl of this goodness packs a ton of nutrients, flavor and warmth, whether made that day or coming from the freezer. I like to use bone broth for extra collagen, but vegetable broth can easily be substituted to make this vegan. Also, feel free to play around with spices; cumin, turmeric, curry, garam masala, herbs de Provence all go beautifully with this recipe.

  • Once a nutritionist says “detox” and/or “cleanse,” they lose credibility. Good news is that you don’t need a nutritionist to stamp-approve vegetable soup. Just don’t forget a swirl of pesto, some hearty bread, a slather of butter, and a glass of wine.

  • Petit détail pour la nutritionniste : la saison de l’asperge va d’avril à juin. Une bonne soupe de saison se compose par définition de légumes de saison, quand ils sont au meilleur de leur forme pour un apport optimal.
