New Year’s Detox

1 Jan

A few days early of January detox time, but we thought we’d add this soothing soup to the mix.

After all the wine and goodies we’ve consumed through the holidays, we’re already craving hot water with lemon and nutritious soups, smoothies and salads.

Dr. Oz’s Belly-Blasting New Year’s Soup
Makes 4 1/2 cups

1 (14.5-oz) can of fire-roasted tomatoes with medium chilies

1 (15-oz) can of chick peas

2 cloves garlic, chopped

2 cups vegetable or chicken broth

2 tbsp chili powder

1/4 cup lime juice

1/2 cup chopped cilantro

Puree the tomatoes, chick peas and garlic with the broth and chili powder in a blender (in batches, if necessary) transfer mix to a medium large pot, bring to a boil, lower the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes. (If using and an immersion blender, you can process the ingredients directly in the cooking pot).

Before serving, stir in the like juice and cilantro. Enjoy!
