Green Soup with Ginger

When the cold weather comes I’m in the mood for soup.  This gluten free Green Soup with Ginger that I found on Heidi’s website is quite comforting on a chilly day.  And I must confess, I often eat it for breakfast to start my day out right.

I’ve probably mangled the work of art that Heidi had on her site, however, I was in the mood for something very soothing so I decided to puree this soup.  I also used collards (my friend Patrick had just brought some over from Rachel’s farm) instead of the green chard that Heidi had used and made a few other changes as well.

All in all I was more than happy with how the soup turned out.  The combination of lemon, ginger and greens can’t be beat taste or nutrition-wise.

Come on over to my facebook page and see my sister’s (Dina Amsterdam) campaign for the yoga clothing company, Blue Canoe.  She is a yoga teacher in San Francisco and leads retreats all over the country and teaches internationally.  The campaign is lovely.

You may notice that I am now displaying my twitter feed on the sidebar of this website.  I’m on twitter every day, usually a couple of times a day.  For more twitter action join me over here.

And finally, at this point, more than 2 months after its release, my gluten free cookbook has received a nice amount of reviews on, to take a look at them (they run the gamut) check out The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook.

Enjoy the soup and stay warm!

  1. Hi Elana,

    I am the only one in my house who will enjoy this lovely soup. Can it be frozen and enjoyed later? And thank you for this amazing site. I appreciate the easy, delicious, healthy recipes.

    • Lisa, I haven’t tried that so not sure! I think it would be worth giving it a go. If you do I hope you’ll stop back by and let us know if it worked :-)

  2. i don’t have colllards where I live, what other greens can I substitute with other than kale? Thanks for replying
