Cook Time 20 mins
Total Time 40 mins
Servings 4 people

Ingredients
  

  • 1 onion finely sliced
  • 350-400 g broccoli head cut into florets, peel and use the stalk
  • 450 g frozen spinach
  • 2 tbsp. light olive oil
  • 2 ¼ pints boiling water
  • 2 vegetable or chicken stock cubes (gluten & diary free)
  • herbamare or sea salt
  • white pepper

garnish

  • sea salt
  • cracked black pepper
  • kale chips or plantain croutons
  • coconut cream or yogurt

Instructions
 

  • In a large saucepan add the olive oil, onion and sauté until soft for approx. 5 minutes. Add spinach and sauté until soft. Season with herbamare or sea salt and white pepper.
  • Add the broccoli florets and stalk, and continue to sauté for 2 minutes. Add the chicken or vegetable stock and stir into the vegetables, check for seasonings. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer on a medium heat for 20 minutes.
  • Once the soup has cooked, cool for 15 minutes then, using a hand blender, or freestanding blender. blend into a creamy and smooth liquid. The longer you blend, the creamier the texture will be.
  • To serve, I like to garnish with a touch of coconut cream, twist of cracked black pepper, kale chips or plantain croutons.

Notes

LISA’S TIP - Broccoli is bursting with so much goodness. With an abundance of vitamins, calcium and a great source of phytochemical sulforaphane, which has been scientifically proven to help reduce the risk of cancer and repair sun-damaged skin. It’s absolutely decadent and delicious, made using a handful of ingredients, if you don’t need this soup to be vegan scatter some blue cheese or grated parmesan, cheddar cheese over the top.
