Cabbage Detox Soup Recipe

cabbage soup recipe eczema

Cabbage is a gentle, low-salicylate vegetable with detoxification properties as it boosts the 'sulphation' and 'glutathione' pathways in the liver. Cabbage is a member of the mighty Brassica family and rich in vitamin C, folate and anti-cancer indoles. Leeks and garlic help to boost the immune system. Calcium boosts the alkalinity of the soup, gradually reduces skin sensitivities and helps the body to block the absorption of toxic heavy metals. 

This low salicylate detox recipe is ideal for people with skin disorders such as eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, hives, acne, rosacea, topical steroid withdrawal and red skin syndrome. Use organic ingredients if possible.

1 leek (white parts chopped finely)
3 cloves garlic, minced
3L filtered water (must be filtered)
1 small cabbage (or ½ large), finely chopped
1/2 to 1 teaspoon quality sea salt/Himalayan salt/Celtic sea salt
2 scoops of calcium powder, optional (Skin Friend PM)
(choose one of the following: if you are not sensitive to potatoes add 3 white potatoes, peeled and diced or use ¼ cup dried red lentils, rinsed)



In a large pot, sauté leek and garlic briefly on medium heat. Add the filtered water and cabbage, and the potatoes or lentils (if using). Bring to the boil and simmer, covered for 20 minutes. Then add the salt and simmer for another ten minutes. Taste and add extra salt if desired. Stir in the calcium powder. 

This can be served as a chunky soup or blend in batches, in a blender, to make it smooth. If blending, allow it to cool for at least ten minutes before placing the soup in the blender.

    Hi, can you please tell me the amount you mean when you say two scoops for the calcium powder in the detox soup. Thank you.

    I added part swede turnip and part potato along with the cabbage. Used some therapeutic bone broth and the filtered water, sweetened it with a bit of rice malt syrup. Mmmm good.

    I have several bowls of this soup every day. It is really delicious and a great way to get cabbage and leek daily. I like to use both potatoes and lentils in it and have it with a side of rice. I’ve also used turnip instead of potatoes and it was great too! When I am out and know I won’t have time to make some at night, I make it in the slow cooker (8 hours on low) and it works well, all I have to do when I get home is blend it with my hand blender! It is also good cold when it is too hot for soup.
