Ingredients

  • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1" cubes
  • 3 carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 1 stalk celery, diced
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Pinch of Kosher or sea salt, more or less to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans navy beans, drained and rinsed (optional, black beans)
  • 4 cups vegetable broth, low-sodium
  • 1 (14.5 oz.) can diced tomatoes (no salt added), *this is an optional ingredient
  • 4 cups baby spinach, loosely packed
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil, optional, for serving (1/2 teaspoon per serving)

Directions

Add all ingredients, except spinach and olive oil, to the slow cooker. Cover and cook on low 6 to 8 hours, or until the vegetables are tender. Add spinach, stir and continue cooking just until wilted, approximately 5 minutes. Serve and enjoy! (1 Serving Per Night if doing the 3 Day Cleanse & Detox)

Tip: If you prefer a thicker soup, after 5 hours of cooking, simply remove 1 cup of soup, along with ingredients, mash ingredients with a fork, return to the slow cooker, stir and continue cooking 1 to 3 hours. When serving, drizzle a little (optional) olive oil over each bowl of soup.

Note: Olive oil helps the body absorb nutrients more efficiently and supports a healthy digestive system.

Stovetop Method: Follow the same instructions above for prep, cover, and simmer until veggies are tender, approximately 2 hour. Stir every 15 minutes to prevent sticking. Add spinach at the end of cooking time, remove from heat, cover and allow spinach to wilt before serving.

      Remember the idea is not to get filled up, but rather satisfied. 1 cups = approximately 150 calories.

    • hungryanbored  January 20, 2015

      the calories and nutritional facts are right above the ingredients, one cup is unlikely to be very filling but 3 cups is only 411 calories, and that likely would be very filling

      Interesting comments. I am also looking over the ingredients and wonder, its probably the vegetable stock. I never used that type in my soup. I always use chicken or been. that's just me. I am also thinking, it these are on slow cook for 5 to 8 hours, the vegetables are overcooked no? I am going to try this but with chicken/beef stock and not in the slow cooker. will post how it turn out. thanks for your comments.

      You can just leave it out. If you have access to Chayote, a Mexican vegetable. that's a good substitute for zucchini. You can also add chopped cucumber right before serving. Otherwise, just omit it.

I just spent 60$ on food and I don't have everything I need to make the soup. I'm pretty upset cause now I have to go back to the grocery store if I want to make that veggie soup.

      No, you don't need to be home near a bathroom though you might have to use the bathroom once or twice after eating. You can eat regular light meals.

    • SkinnyMs  February 27, 2014

      Cilantro is an herb that looks like parsley, and has a fresh, bright flavor that pairs well with lime. It's often used in Latin American and Asian cooking. Parsley is a good substitute here, or fresh mint leaves. Add chopped cucumber to the soup at the end to replace the zucchini.

      What is butternut squash? In Australia, we have butternut pumpkin, sweeter than some other pumpkins. Squash over here is a small round but flattened veggie yellow or green in couloir and similar flavour and firmer texture than it's family member zucchini.. My point is pumpkin is usually a no no in dieting for some reason. I am happy of it's inclusion though, as it is a favourite of mine.

    I've made this a half dozen times now and it's my favorite soup ever. I make a few minor changes as follows: 1) I use a dutch oven on the stove top. 2) I use both the zucchini and the sweet potato. 3) I use a full 32 oz. carton of veggie broth. 4) I double the paprika.

    I toss the veggies into the dutch oven as I cut them so they get a quick saute, add everything else except the spinach and then cook it for an hour or two until the veggies are just tender. Add the spinach at the end as instructed. It's basically a Minestrone without the pasta. Even my meat loving (and sweet potato hating) husband loves it. SO HEALTHY AND DELICIOUS.

      Yes, you can add a little tomato puree. We prefer the cardboard carton to cans, or a touch of tomato paste from the tube. Even sundried tomato paste would work nicely for a bit of tomato flavor.

    the serving size is 8, so if doing the detox diet should one only eat a cup of soup as dinner?

    • SkinnyMs  August 13, 2014

      Cathleen, For the detox, you can eat 1-1/2 to 2 cups of the soup. It's a low calorie soup.

    Why is there so much floating oil on top of the soup? "The fat you eat is the fat you wear", per Dr John McDougall, but I see there is no added fat in the recipe?

    Reply
    • SkinnyMs  November 10, 2014

      Jessica, That is just a swirl of olive oil added on the top for the image and is not in the recipe. There are many fats that are very good for you, such as the fats found in olives, coconuts, salmon, avocados and more. Refined sugar and refined carbs actually turn to fat in the body.

    This was delicious! I used vegetable stock, not broth, and 4 cups not 2. I also added some frozen green beans and frozen corn. Did this on the stovetop and cooked it on medium/medium low for about 1- 1 1/2 hrs. So good! (Also, used sweet potatoes not zucchini. Added some sweetness to the recipe along with the sweetness from the carrots. I think zucchini might get mushy.)

    I tried this for the first time last week & my husband & I both thought it was so amazing that I have this week's batch cooking as we speak. I love sweet potatoes so I did two sweet potatoes instead of one & three stalks of celery diced. I also added two servings of portabello mushrooms to this batch which I didn't do last time so we'll see if that helps make it more hearty. I have a feeling I'm going to be making this a lot in the future!

    This soup is AMAZING! Really filling and delicious. I've also experimented with adding a poached egg on top or swirling in a tablespoon of low fat sour cream or topping with chopped avocado and cilantro. All are fantastic! I didn't expect it to have so much flavor either.

    Starting this today for 5 days .. while I know this is a cleanse, what on average can you expect as far as weight loss. I’m religious about working out, eat fairly well, but for 2016 wanted to begin a ‘cleaner’ eating pattern and thought this was a great start. Your website is great BTW, glad I came across it.

We, at Skinny Ms., try to take the focus off of the number on the scale and put it onto healthy living, instead.

    I read a bunch of reviews where people said this soup was bland or not good. I thought it was DELICIOUS! I made it in my pressure cooker and my whole apt smells amazing. I didn’t have allspice or bayleaf so I added a mix of oregano, basil, and rosemary. I also added turmeric. I can’t eat beans so I bought extra firm cubed tofu, cut it a little smaller than the cubes, and added that. I planned on cheating tomorrow night for a date night with the husband (I thought I was going to be miserable eating this soup anyway) but I asked him if we could reschedule because I actually WANT to eat this for dinner tomorrow! Thanks for the recipe :)

      Carri, Having a bowl twice daily is fine. It’s important that you eat until satisfied, but not full. This is such a healthy recipe that having a little extra is fine.
