Detox minestrone soup

Simple, filling and full of nutrients. Low in fat, high in fiber and protein. Sounds like a winner, huh?

Recipe adapted.


  • olive oil
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 3 tablespoons Italian spices
  • 2-3 carrots, cut into thin coins
  • 1-15oz can of fire roasted tomatoes, diced
  • 1-15oz can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed

Saute onion and garlic in hot pan until translucent. Add celery and spices and saute a few more minutes. Add carrots, tomatoes and beans. Add enough water to cover what is in the pot. Bring to a boil. Cover and lower to a simmer. Simmer for 30 minutes or longer. Add salt and pepper to taste.

My nearly empty bowl as I gobbled it down at work. I was hungry for lunch!
