Heat the olive oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat.

Add the onion, garlic, and ginger Saute for 3-4 minutes, until the garlic is fragrant and the onions are translucent.

Veggie Variations

It’s easy to customize this chicken detox soup recipe to your liking with your favorite vegetables. Here are some other ideas for what you can include in this dish…

Hard Vegetables:

These harder veggies are best to saute, so add them at step 2 with the onions or step 3 with the bell peppers:

Cabbage – Detox cabbage soup is a popular soup addition. Shred the cabbage (or just use a bag of coleslaw mix to save time) before sauteing with the peppers.

Carrots – Note that carrots are not low carb on their own, but I’m fine including them in small amounts in healthy soup recipes. You can dice them finely to cook more quickly, or simply slice into rounds.

Celery – Thinly slice or dice one stalk celery (or a few), and saute with carrots and onions.

Mushrooms – Slice thinly and brown them with the onions.

Soft Vegetables:

These softer vegetables cook quickly, so we add them toward the end (at step 6) so that they don’t get mushy:

Green Beans – Fresh or frozen.

Zucchini – Slice them into half moons or cut into cubes.

Greens – Add kale or spinach just in the last couple of minutes of cooking.
