Garlic & Greens Soup

This recipe comes from Colleen Patrick-Goudreau (

I make this whenever any of my family feels a cold coming on and it nips it right in the bud!

  • 1 whole head garlic, minced
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 1 bunch greens (kale, collards, spinach, etc)
  • 3-4 potatoes, cubed
  • 8 cups veg broth or water with bouillon cube
  • 1 can cannellini beans (beans aren’t a part of the original recipe – I added for a dash of protein)
1.  Saute the onion & garlic
2.  Add potatoes and broth, simmer for a bit
3.  Add greens & beans until potatoes are soft
4.  Salt to taste
5.  add 1T of rice vinegar to bowl when serving & sprinkle a little nutritional yeast on top
Crusty bread is a must!  I put cubes of bread on Olivia’s plate to soak up the broth since she doesn’t do well eating soupy liquids yet.
