Soup on Peertrainer

There was a video for how to make this vegetable soup with coconut milk on peertrainer a while back. I would like to make this soup, but I can't find the link. Can anyone lead me to it? It sounded really good.

It's an "Energy Soup Recipe". I guess that means it has lots of calories?

no- it is a miracle weight loss soup. Make the soup, eat it for a week and then post your weight after 7 days. You will have to work very very hard to gain weight while eating it. I have no idea why it works, but it does, it literally sucks the fat off your stomach.

A warning though - only make this soup if you like broccoli. I made it thinking it maybe wouldn't taste totally like broccoli, but it did, and I couldn't even gag down one bowl. If you like broccoli, it's not bad!

I love broccoli and this sounds really good. I wonder if I could make it in my vitamix and use vegetable juice instead of Chicken broth? I am a vegetarian, you see.

Beware ~ if you do not have an immersion blender, this will be a pain to make. It needs to be blended correctly or one veggie will stand out too much. A food processor MIGHT work but it is not the same as an immersion blender.

To the PP that wanted to use "vegetable JUICE" ~ no, no, no. As a chef I can tell you that broth and juice are sooooooooooooooooo not interchangable. You can use veggie broth, but not veggie juice.

Thanks for telling me not to use vegetable juice. I am extremely curious, though, what would happen?

To loose weight with this soup, is that all one eats for a week? or is it added to the existing eating plan?

By the way, don't do one large onion. Make it a medium onion. Signed, Jackie who hasn't gotten to change the blog post recipe yet!

Juice verses broth ~

Juice is made from selected whole vegetables whereas broth is made from cooking down whole vegetables in equal parts of veggies and water with selected spices. You extract the goodness of the veggies into the water and then drain off, no whole veggies end up in the broth.

Someone posted earlier "miricle weight loss" soup, is it really that? I thought it was just a really healthy, get your veggies in, type of soup. Has anyone actually eaten it every day, along with their normal diet and lost a lot more weight? Would love to hear any and all testimonials.

Thanks 8:32, but my curiosity was not about what is juice versus what is broth. (I actually do know that) My curiosity was about, what will happen if I substitute juice for broth? I was hoping to hear why the chef was so appalled. Would it turn Toxic? Would it Explode? What exactly would be the repercussions?

It would radically change the texture because you're removing water. Think about oatmeal. When you make it and don't add enough water it gets lumpy. While juice appears soluble, it is 10 times or more thicker than broth (depending on how you make your broth). Most juices are not designed to be heated either. The chemical reaction of heating tomato juice for one is hysterical. I've seen it explode. There are also additional acids in juices not found in broth. You could get curdling from the coconut milk mixing with a highly acidic juice. There's just various things that could go wrong based on what type of juice you would consider using.

Such knowledge and information! I love it! I'm shopping tomorrow and buying the necessary ingredients to try this famous soup!! : )
I love coconut and I love broccoli (2 of my husband's most detested foods) - I can't wait to taste this!

I wish I had the immersion blender to make this or even my food processor. This sounds really good and you can control the sodium unlike canned soups.

OP, here. Thanks for the link. I made the soup today. Looks kind of gross, but very tasty. I cut down on the onion (thanks for the tip) and changed a "handful" of red pepper flakes to 1 teaspoon which is plenty hot for me. Doesn't need much in the way of salt at all. Not sure where the 'energy' part of the soup comes from, but I'm always looking for new ways to dress up the veggies. I'm not really tasting the veggies in it; mostly what I taste is the mild sweetness of the coconut milk and the hot pepper flakes.

I made this soup today, I don't have anything fancy just my magic bullet (blender). I made the soup and let it cool then blended it up, I think this would be the same result. I haven't tried it yet, it looks like baby puke really gross green lol but it smells really good so crossing my fingers I can eat it for lunch tomorrow.

It's green. What is the big deal? It looks kind of like split pea soup. People drink coffee every day and it looks like sludge, the worst mud ever. Don't listen to these people. It's just green and it's fine. I've never thought twice about the color.

Anyone that makes this soup... do you have any questimates on the calorie count? for a one cup serving?

To the PP asking about calories for this.

Thankfully I tend to not depend on Calorie Counts. What you have to do is add up all the calories for the individual ingredients, then find out how many cups it makes. Divide the cups into the calories and you have the calories per cup.

Some of the measurments given in the ingredient list are totally vague. bag of spinach, box of mushrooms,chunks of ginger. It is up to us what we want to put in, I guess. Calorie count books have calorie counts for fresh produce, at least the good ones do. I suggest you get a good one if you count calories and want to get away from the already-processed-for-you food choices. You can figure out the calories for almost any home cooked meal this way.

calorie count on the energy soup

I ran the tally of the calories of the ingredients and I came up with 1550 for the whole soup which I divided into 10 one cup portions making it 155 per serving. At times I have also cut the serving size down to 3/4 cup or 1/2 cup and then figured the calories at roughly 40 per 1/4 cup of soup. I would suspect the fat loss is due to a number of things 1) Soup which is rich, creamy and fiber rich satifies your hunger well. 2) The soup in very nutrient dense so you eat less later in the day since your body got good quality fuel. 3) They is reportedly a calorie burning benefit from coconut oil which is in the coconut milk.

Thanks for the soup video link -- I want to make it, just got the Cuisinart stick blender! I plan on using my favorite veggies (LOVE broccoli and mushrooms!) and some kale -- I don't think I'll overdo it on that first time.... and chicken broth.

Coconut milk can vs box

Where do you get a can of coconut milk? Mine comes in a box from SoDelicious (unsweetened). How many ounces should I use for the soup?

I use the can, I don't think the unsweetened one in the box is right for the soups. You just use that for the vegalite shakes for the cleanse.

Oh, and you get the can in the mexican or ethnic aisle in the grocery store. If you ask someone who works there thye'll usually tell u exactly where it is.
