“This book is a triumph! Rebecca has harnessed the healing power of soups in spectacular fashion with this stunning collection of tips and recipes. No matter what your dietary stripes, this healthy, clean comfort food will revitalize you, body and soul, and make you voracious for vegetables.”
—TESS MASTERS, author of The Blender Girl and The Blender Girl Smoothies
"Designed for efficiency, with guidelines for pantry stocking and broth doctoring, this cookbook also includes prep times, cook times and notes alongside lush photographs. Suitable for eaters ranging from carnivores to vegans, and accommodating gluten-free and dairy-free diets, Clean Soups never compromises on flavor--promising a few simple steps between an array of ingredients and, as Katz's writes, a 'bowl of yum.'"

The cons of this book, in Kindle version anyway, are primarily that the Table of Contents pages are all in light blue font on a dark blue background. The recipe titles here are very hard on the eyes and difficult to read due to the bright, jarring font effects. Links throughout the Kindle version, while better than the Table of Contents, have a similar jarring blue underline to indicate hyperlinked text.
Now for the pros. The books is well done with good instructions for making varieties of base stocks, or broths as the author calls them, and then soup recipes to make from the broths. I acquired an Instant Pot last year and have become a huge fan of making my own soup stocks and healthful soups, and while this book is not geared toward an electronic pressure cooker, the recipes are easy to convert. Aside from basic chicken broth, this book offers Immune Broth, Magic Mineral Broth, and Thai Coconut broth, in addition to three of the popular "bone broths." So far I have made the escarole soup, summer zucchini and basil soup, spiced butternut soup with cardamom and ginger, Moroccan carrot soup, and the coconut cauliflower soup with ginger and turmeric (about five times for that last one). We have loved all of them to date.
My Instant Pot is not large enough to hold 8 quarts of water plus the ingredients for a full recipe, so I have everything. This book also offers a "soup cleanse" which I plan to try this winter. Well done with nice photographs - if only it didn't have those crazy fonts.
