Detox Comfort Stew
Serves : 4
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 small red onion, diced
- 2 shallots, diced
- ½ apple, peeled and diced
- 1 sweet potato, peeled and diced (about 3 cups)
- 2 cups cauliflower, separated into florets
- 2 pints chicken or vegetable stock
- 1 cup baby spinach
- 1 cup baby kale
- Juice of 1 lemon (or more to taste)
- Sea salt to taste
Using a stock pot, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Sauté the red onion, shallots and apple until they just start to brown, about 5-8 minutes.
Add the sweet potato and cauliflower and stir for a minute or two.
Add the stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until the cauliflower and sweet potato are soft, about 15-20 minutes.
Add the spinach and kale and stir until they are wilted. Purée all the ingredients using a blender. Add sea salt and lemon juice to taste.
Variation: If you don’t like sweet potato, add more cauliflower. You can also roast the cauliflower, onion and apple, tossed with the olive oil, in a 400° oven for 25 minutes, rather than sautéing them, add to the stockpot and proceed with recipe.
