“Cream” of Broccoli Soup

October 28th, 2014 | Eating, Recipes, Soups

Last week, my lab mate gave me an amazing recipe for a “cream” of broccoli soup.   I tried it during lunch one day and it was delicious, I couldn’t believe it had no dairy.  I changed it up a bit based on a few extra ingredients I had at home and it was still pretty incredible.  Check it out!

Ingredients
(~6 servings of soup)
12-15 oz broccoli (~1 whole head of broccoli)
8 oz of carrots (2 medium sized carrots)
6 oz of spinach
3 cloves of garlic
1 medium onion
2 cups of chicken stock
2 cans of full fat coconut milk
1 tbsp of coconut oil
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne

Directions
1.  Cut broccoli into florets, carrots into 1 inch thick pieces and coarsely chop onion and garlic
2. Sautee onion and garlic in coconut oil in a pot over medium heat for ~2-3 minutes
3. Add chicken stock and coconut milk.  Bring to a boil and then let simmer for ~10 minutes
4. Add broccoli, carrots and spinach.  Let simmer for ~25 minutes.  Broccoli should be fork tender.
Broccoli Soup
5. Let cool for several minutes and then blend the mixture in a blender.  Don’t blend too much if you like your soup chunkier.  If the soup is too thick for your liking, add water and blend more.
6. Add salt, pepper and cayenne to soup and mix.
7. Ladle soup into a bowl and devour!
