Bieler’s Soup or Bieler’s Broth was developed by the late Dr. Henry Bieler.
Dr. Bieler was know for his advocacy of food as medicine through his practice and his book, Food Is Your Best Medicine.
This simple soup recipe has been helping people feel better for over 50 years.
4 medium zucchini, sliced into rounds
1 pound string beans, ends trimmed
2 stalks celery, chopped
1-2 bunches parsley (flat-leaf or curly), tough stems removed (you can freeze the stems for stock making)
4 cups water
Place all ingredients in a pot and bring to a boil.
Lower the heat and simmer, covered until the vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes.
Puree soup in the pot with a handheld blender or in a blender in batches. A Vitamix works well, also.
Note: This is a great soup to have on hand if you are not feeling well.
I also like to drizzle some good olive oil on the top.
