I loved all the food I made this weekend. It was so fun to make and so delicious. My stomach and body, however, weren’t the biggest fans. I’m not used to eating that rich of food, so once Monday rolled around I promised myself I’d do a little detox. But I’m not one for the starvation, juice detoxes, so instead I made this yummy soup. Best part? It was the quickest soup I’ve ever made. 20 minutes start to finish, and tastes great!
BEST FOR- Quick lunches on cold or detox days… also perfect for leftovers!

Do all your prep work. Mince the shallot and garlic. Pick the thyme off and chop it. Cut the asparagus and kale. Get the corn.
In a large stockpot over medium, heat the oil. Add the shallots, garlic, onion, carrots and celery. Cook until the onion is tender and translucent, six to seven minutes.
