Bright & Healthy Lemon Coriander Soup
A healthy soup filled with shredded napa cabbage, diced carrot, vegetable stock, fresh squeezed lemon, white pepper, cilantro, and sesame oil.
This bright and energizing soup is great for busy weeknight dinners and meal prep. Make extra and store it in your freezer for when you feel a cold coming on or you just need a gentle, detoxifying meal.
A WEEKLY SOUP FOR MEAL PREP
I developed this soup for my clients who follow a vegetarian diet. Their weekly meal prep menu is usually structured as follows:
- A seasonal soup
- Two seasonal, hearty salads
- Two warm, savory meals with a balance of vegetables, grains, & beans
ADD PROTEIN AS DESIRED
I like how light this soup is with the broth, yet filling from the fiber rich cabbage. The use of napa cabbage supports the light and bright feeling the soup provides.
If you prefer protein in the soup, try adding the following:
- white beans such as great northern or cannellini
- lima beans
- shredded chicken or turkey
- ground chicken or turkey
IF YOU LIKE THIS RECIPE, TRY THE FOLLOWING

- Roasted Rainbow Carrots

Have a few extra minutes? Peel the carrots to remove the bitter outer layer and enjoy their natural sweetness.
Add seaweed to enhance the flavor of the broth and the health benefits. Seaweed is full of minerals our body craves. I use a two-inch piece of kombu or wakame.
