Recipe Post Header Image - Garlic and Ginger Soup Recipe. Image of soup in a bowl.

This Garlic and Ginger Soup recipe is quick-to-prep and absolutely delicious. In a rush? Use the stovetop. Savoring your time in the kitchen? Use the crockpot. A slow simmer of whole peeled garlic and sliced ginger gives deep flavor with a gradual addition of cooked chicken, zucchini, carrots, finished by covering a handful of baby spinach in the soup bowl with the hot soup. Garnish with finely chopped fresh herbs of choice, and you have a light lunch made with little hassle.

This recipe is loaded with anti-inflammatory veggies ; carrots, ginger, and spinach provide significant anti-inflammatory properties from carotenoids and gingerols, and the zucchini contributes Vitamins B6, vitamin C, Folic Acid as well as manganese, all boosters for detoxification processes. This recipe works for the Four Week Nutrition Wellness Plan and is Paleo-Friendly.

This Garlic and Ginger Soup recipe pairs well with our Gluten-Free Flatbread: Garlic and Chive .
