A Cooling Carrot & Kale Detox Soup For Summer

Soup is a great way to get immune-building nutrients and detoxifying antioxidants into your diet. In the spring and summer, soup can be a lighter version of the heavy soups we consume in the fall and winter. By lightly cooking soup, meaning a quick sauté and just a few minutes on the stovetop, you’ll have a light, nourishing, feel-good dish, filled with the vitamins and minerals your body needs.

This carrot and kale soup is a light and refreshing dish that can be served hot or cold, depending on your mood.
