Vegan Green Goddess Soup

This vegan and delicious soup is full of vibrant flavors and loaded with nutrition! Serve this soup with a crusty bread for a perfect meal!

Are you looking for a healthy recipe with no compromise on flavors? Your search is over! This green goddess soup is the perfect one! This soup is rich in veggies and is loaded with multiple  vitamins and micro nutrients essential for the body. The split pea added makes it creamy and adds to the protein profile of the soup. There is no cream of any sort is added in this soup. This soup can help in detox as well as weight loss. 

This soup is full of green veggies. Spring is an amazing season! Everything is green and we get lovely fresh and green spring produce. Fresh asparagus and greens will be peak in flavors and using all the other veggies of tis season in one soup that will detoxify the body is amazing! This soup uses all the green spring veggies I had on hand. It includes green bell pepper, celery, green beans, asparagus, broccoli, mustard greens, spinach, and cilantro. Any herbs of choice could be used. Any combination of green veggies can be used or even spinach alone can be used. 

Greens can be used in soups in many ways and this soup is one way. Try the Potato Spinach Soup or Kale and Pasta Minestrone for other Spring veggies soup. 

This recipe can serve four to six persons based on the serving size. I prefer to puree this soup and serve. In this way the added stash of veggies will not be seen and even the pickiest eater will have this soup. Easy sneaking nutrients! The soup can be pureed in a blender or immersion blender, just use with caution as the contents may be hot. This also makes the consistency creamy! Win-win situation!

It’s the third Saturday of this month and time for our  soul recipes we share in our #soupsaturdayswappers group. Karen is the host this month and she chose the theme as "Soup with Greens".  This soup with greens and spring veggies sound a perfect share for this event.
