8 Easy Plant-Based Soup Recipes With Immune Boosting Power

Our immune system is made up of a complex network of cells and organs that help protect our body from harmful toxins and infections. Adding immunity-boosting foods to our diet is a natural and healthy way to strengthen our immune system. Soup is a quick and convenient dish that can be packed with phytonutrients and antioxidants. Since soup is a one-pot meal, all the nutrients are retained in the broth as vegetables, herbs, grains, legumes, and spices are cooked together. With ingredients like garlic, dark leafy greens, broccoli, chickpeas, black beans, mushrooms, and sweet potato all simmering in a flavorful, hot broth with spices, you’ll be sure to help nourish your body.
