It seems like there was a lot of broth put into the recipe, but when you boil it down, much of it evaporates and leaves and the essence is concentrated into the soup.

I love to make all kinds of soups in the colder months; vegetable and meat based. When I make a vegetarian or vegan soup, I always make my own broth ahead of time. This is much easier than it may seem.
To make my own broth, every day I save the vegetable scraps from my meal prep in a freezer bag in the freezer. I use the skins and ends of onions, garlic, carrot and celery tops, broccoli and cauliflower ends, kale or chard stems, etc.
When I’m ready to make broth, I take the bag of scraps out of the freezer, put them in a pot, cover with water, bring to a boil and then simmer for 2 hours. It’s chock full of nutrients! Not only are you taking advantage of extracting all the nutrients from your vegetable scraps that you would otherwise be throwing away, you can easily compost the cooked veggies afterwards. Good for you and good for the environment!!

This is a low-carb, plant-based keto soup recipe that tastes wonderful and is loaded with powerful nutrients. This is a fantastic immune supporting recipe for someone that is immune compromised.
In order to increase the overall fat calories, I recommend adding in extra coconut oil, olive oil or MCT oil after it is prepared. It can also be a great idea to add an avocado or sprinkle some hemp seeds for more healthy fats, fiber and anti-oxidants. You can really play around with this base recipe to find what makes it perfect for you.
If you have come down with a cold or flu or are trying to battle cancer it can be a great idea to do a plant-based keto diet with nutrient dense soups like this to jump start your immune system. If you do enjoy consuming meat, you can also add chicken or grass-fed beef or lamb to this and make a great stew. Let us know your thoughts in the comments box below!
