Salad Soup

May 16, 2022, at 01:49 PMerika

The concept of a "detox" seems ridiculous when it tends to just end up a potentially sugar-filled smoothie. Since I'd rather take my sugar in cake and cookie form, and find salads cold these days, turning it into a relatively healthy soup seems like a decent alternative. Not a bad result from the couple times I've tried it.


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion
  • 1-3 tbsp chopped garlic (1-3 cloves)
  • (optional) mixed vegetables, eg. celery, carrots, leeks, cucumbers, etc.
  • 1 large container mixed salad greens (eg. 50/50 spinach and red lettuce)
  • 1 tbsp rosemary
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 L water
  • 1.5 cups milk


  1. Saute in olive oil the onion, garlic, and any vegetables that do well with sauteing (eg. celery, leeks)
  2. Toss in vegetables, salad greens, rosemary, salt & pepper, and water
  3. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 20-45 min
  4. Add milk, again bring to a boil and simmer for 20 min
  5. Puree

Makes enough for 6-8 portions.
