GAPS Intro Diet. Day 22. Stage 1.
Soups become a mainstay when you're going GAPS. You come up with all kinds of interesting combinations - out of necessity mostly. When those combinations become a bit boring, try blending your soups. An immersion blender, regular blender or food processor can take your recipes to a whole new level.
chard and fennel soup
1 large bunch chard, leaves torn, stalks discarded
1 large bulb fennel, chopped
1-2 leeks, white parts chopped
2-3 carrots, diced
1 quart chicken stock, beef stock or bone broth
celtic mineral sea salt
Add a few spoonfuls of ghee to a heavy pot over medium heat. Saute the leeks and fennel for 5-10 minutes or until translucent. Add the carrots and stir for a few minutes more.
Add the stock or broth and bring to a simmer. Continue to cook for 5-10 minutes or until carrots are just tender. Add the chard and cook until the greens are wilted.
Season with sea salt as desired, blend and serve.
