Taste-bud Journey: Lettuce Soup Recipe

During the pandemic, I am taking taste-bud journeys as I self-isolate rather than physical journeys. Here is my adapted recipe for Lettuce Soup. It was inspired by a couple of recipes I found on the internet.

Please note that this soup bowl easily holds a three-cup serving. The recipe itself makes enough for either:

  • 3 servings of 3 cups each or
  • 6 servings of 2 cups each or
  • 9 servings of 1 cup each.


  • 12 oz bag of lettuce (any kind)
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 3 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 tsp chives
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds (optional)
  • 10 oz bag riced cauliflower
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp minced onion flakes
  • 1 tsp chopped parsley
  • 1 tbsp ground flax
  • 1 tsp Italian Seasoning

Please note: The addition of chia seeds is optional. It helps thicken the soup; plus, chia seeds are super nourishing.

Please also note: You can substitute or add in any spices you desire. I tend to be sensitive to pepper and spicy foods; therefore, that dictates my ingredients choices.



  • Step 1: In blender, place lettuce and 2 cups chicken broth. Blend until mostly smooth.

  • Step 2: Pour that mixture into microwave steamer.

  • Step 3: Add rest of ingredients.

  • Step 4: Cover and microwave for 10 minutes.

  • Step 5: Stir mixture.

  • Step 6: Garnish serving with salt-free pine nuts. Enjoy!

Please note: You could alternatively use an immersion blender; however, when I tried it, I ended up splattering soup on my kitchen wall. Lol! Therefore, next time I make this recipe, I will blend those ingredients instead.


Please also note: Leftovers can be refrigerated for next-day use or frozen for future use.
