Put your springtime greens to good use with this one-pot soup you can have ready in minutes!

If you’re looking for a fresh way to use up those hearty spring greens, this brothy soup has you covered. It’s full of immune-boosting antioxidants and essential vitamins to keep you nourished throughout the day. Plus, it’s versatile enough to enjoy with any kind of protein (like chicken or beef).

Add As Much Produce Power As You’d Like

When it comes to spring soup, there’s a bounty of seasonal veggies to choose from. Tougher greens like chard, kale, and collard greens give this soup nutritional substance. However, you can also add in other greens (like celery, leeks, or zucchini) if you want to switch things up a bit.

We bump up the overall staying power of this soup with hearty parsnips. They make a great low-carb alternative to white potatoes and can be easily paired with other root vegetables like carrots, turnips, or rutabagas.


Complement Your Soup With Savory Herbs

For this recipe, we use ingredients that infuse mouth-watering aromas with the zesty tang of fresh lemons. White onion and garlic make the perfect combination to sauté in buttery ghee, as it intensifies the broth’s flavor and overall richness.

Fennel is full of herby anise flavor, and is equally delicious raw as it is cooked. While we utilize the bulb in this recipe, its seed and wispy fronds are also edible and can be added to other dishes, like salads, meatballs, and coleslaw. Other great herbs to add include fresh thyme, a sprig of rosemary, dill, or fresh basil.

Helpful Tips To Get Started:

  • Sauté your veggies with ghee. Ghee is ideal for high heat cooking and won’t burn easily like butter or other cooking oils.
  • Make your bowl even more filling. While this recipe comes with plenty of versatile options, you can also add mustard greens, cauliflower, or sweet potatoes for even more nutrition.
  • Swap out herbs. Try herbs like thyme, rosemary, or dill to pack in even more springtime flavor.
