Alkaline Diet Recipe: Gut Healing Zucchini and Basil Soup

Printer Friendly Version

Zucchini_and_Basil_Soup_mediumLast time, we talked about leaky gut syndrome and how it’s not what you eat, it’s what you absorb.

Today, I’ve got a recipe that’s going to help heal a leaky gut, but you’ll enjoy it even if your digestive system is perfectly healthy!


This soup has 3 sources of healthy fats that help to repair the gut, and it’s full of alkaline vegetables that will restore the nutrients your body desperately needs. Plus, you can make your own veggie broth for a really healing experience – the store bought kind is fine, as long as it’s organic, but homemade really is best.


It’s also a delicious use of a couple of in-season vegetables. I know you’re going to love the aromatic flavor of the basil, so give it a try and let me know what you think in the comments below.


Zucchini and Basil Soup
Serves 4



Zucchini_b924da57-1c90-4fff-8c97-9f4c29a03681_medium2 tbsp. coconut oil

2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
4 zucchinis, sliced with skin on
6 cups of vegetable broth (or 4 cups broth + 2 cups water)
Small handful of fresh basil
Sea Salt (Celtic Grey, Himalayan, or Redmond Real Salt) & pepper to taste
½ cup raw cashews (ideally soaked overnight)
½ – ¾ cup filtered water




For the cashew cream, soak cashews overnight, then drain and rinse them. Place in a high-powered blender with enough water to cover a little over the top of the cashews. Puree until smooth. Add more water to create the consistency of heavy cream. You may strain the cream through a mesh strainer to remove any coarse pieces.


Melt the coconut oil in a large pan, add the olive oil and once hot, add the onion and garlic with a little salt. Once the mixture starts to brown a little (about 7 to 10 minutes), add the zucchini and sauté for 3 to 5 minutes more.


Add the vegetable broth and lower the heat a little. Let the flavors meld and the zucchini soften for 15 to 20 minutes.


Puree the mixture in a high-powered blender and then strain through a fine mesh strainer back into your pot. Stir in the cashew cream and basil and then season with salt and pepper.
