Anti-Cancer Soup is Soothing and Delicious

This simple light brothy soup is one of my favorites because it is fast and easy to make and is loaded with anti-cancer vegetables.

The broth is warm and soothing, the vegetables are not overcooked, and it's full of healthy nutrients. It definitely feels like a big bowl of comfort soup, and it's a good immune booster as well. I feel really good when I eat this light healthy soup.

This recipe is truly a dump soup. You can dump any vegetable you have in the soup pot before cooking. Obviously, I dumped cruciferous vegetables for their anti-cancer benefits. 

I used what I had in the fridge. Can you see the dark green kale and snowy white cauliflower amidst the carrots, parsley, garlic,  leeks and celery? In addition, I dumped in a few pieces of fresh garlic and a little turmeric.

After the soup is cooked, you can add cooked grains like rice or quinoa to each bowl, chopped hard boiled egg, chopped scallions, more ground turmeric, a little sesame oil,  or whatever healthy ingredients you like . The beauty of a dump soup is that just about anything can go into it. 

Since the soup can be made rather quickly, I like to make mine fresh and eat it right away for the greatest antioxidant benefits.  This recipe makes about 4 bowls.

    1. It is simple and it is healthy. Your vegetable broth that you add will make a difference with the flavor.
      So make your own or find a broth that you love. My husband always adds some sesame oil to his bowl with some rice.

    1. Yes,
      I try to be all about healthy especially in a broth.. since I'm a vegetarian I don't make bone broths. I like to think that I get some good nourishment from my soups.

  7. Soup is a favorite here... especially because it can taste good and also pack a nutritional punch. :)

  8. You are talking to a soup lover whether is winter or summer
