A book has recently come out that is very popular and the author, Rachael Beller, is doing the rounds of the talk shows. The book is called Power Souping. It starts with a 3-day detox, where you consume nothing but soup, even for breakfast, though the breakfast “soup” is really a smoothie. For the next three weeks, you have one meal per day of only soup. The soups generally consist of a base of vegetables, then a protein and a topping. Beller points out that soups are better than green juices because a soup made of vegetables is usually more palatable than a green juice.
This green pea, asparagus and parsley soup from Rachel Beller is not only power souping, but powerfully good eats. She published this recipe at epicurious.com.
