Kimchi and Vegetable Soup

VEGGIE-KIMCHI-SOUP.jpg

When searching for Crohn’s friendly recipes, I am always on the look out for great dishes that not only are delicious, but easy to digest, and (if I am lucky) actually good for the gut. Well, this Kimchi and Vegetable Soup seems to hit the trifecta. Not only is it packed full of flavor, but it is absolutely full of gut-boosting goodness, (thanks to the kimchi,) as well as a huge immunity builder with loads of bone broth, garlic and ginger. Being naturally gluten and dairy free, this soup seems to be a great fit for Crohnies. If any of the veggies are difficult for you to tolerate, simply leave them out or substitute a veggie that works better for you. I love the idea of using kimchi juice to get those probiotics into the soup, (especially if the solid kimchi itself is difficult for you to digest.)

 

Soups can be a great way to get huge amounts of nutrients in an easily digestible way. Here’s how the magic happens:
