gingered pork soup with green spring vegetables and szechuan broth {gluten free + paleo option}

Guys! Seattle is still sitting RIGHT on the middle of the fence with this whole nice weather business. My solution? Gingered pork soup with green spring vegetables and szechuan broth! It’s the perfect way to warm up AND indulge in some of the new spring vegetables that are making their way into our markets. Because what’s the fun of resisting new spring veggies just because the weather isn’t exactly cooperating?

Full disclosure here.. I’m totally obsessed with this soup and I’m not even sorry about it.

It’s a brothy, umami rich, green spring vegetable loaded bowl of goodness and I’m reaaaally excited to be sharing the recipe with you guys! I made this for the first time a while ago.. and just re-made it again right before I left for the Everything Food conference. It didn’t all get eaten before I left so I tucked a container into the freezer so I would have a healthy meal to come home to when I got back. And while I wouldn’t recommend freezing it (the veggies got a little soft and turned a weird green color) I still happily ate it when I returned 🙂

It’s that good.

Brimming with fragrant aromatics, tender ribbons of cabbage instead of noodles, and delightfully delicious pork meatballs.

Since giving up most grains I haven’t been dining out for as many meals as I used to, and definitely I have not been indulging in big bowls of steaming pho with long slurp worthy rice noodles and more aromatics than my head knew what to do with.

Considering that pho is one of my ultimate comfort foods (helllllo one too many glasses of wine! How does pho always know how to fix that?!), I’ve been coping okay, but when it started snowing this week AGAIN in Seattle, I knew I had to do something about my life without pho.

She used to make smothered pork chops for dinner what felt like every week. Her version was definitely made a little bit differently though – with canned cream of mushroom soup, served alongside some rice and steamed lima beans (my favorite // least favorite veggie that I always said I hated but always finished – oh to be five again 😂)

This version has no canned soups, no grains, and is totally dairy free. Sounds pretty phenomenol, right?
