Wild Mushroom & Minted Brussels Soup - Perfect pairing with our Juice Till Dinner Juice Cleanse

Wild Mushroom, Ginger, and Minted Brussels Pho Soup Vegan Soup - Perfect Pairing on our Juice Till Dinner Juice Cleanse

Recipe and photo courtesy of Crazy Sexy Kitchen by Kris Carr 

This is a great meal to enjoy during your prep period of a Juice Cleanse.  It is also fantastic way to compliment our Juice Till Dinner juice cleanse where you drink 4 juices/day and 2 small meals.

This recipe became an instant favorite because of the incredibly flavorful broth, and how easy it is to make.  We love it best with 2 packages of Udon noodles. However, if you want to keep it gluten free, feel free to use your favorite brown-rice, buckwheat or rice noodles.
