A Fall Favorite Soup

15 09 2011

The weather is cooling down and what could be better than a warm bowl of soup. Here is my favorite recipe for broccoli soup:


Creamy Broccoli Soup

2 Tbsp coconut oil

2 med green onions, coarsely chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 large head fresh broccoli, washed and chopped

1 Tbsp basil leaves, dried

2 c. chopped spinach, kale, turnip greens, collards, or Swiss chard

2 quarts vegetable or chicken broth (homemade or organic/free-range)

1 can coconut milk

1 tsp sea salt

1 Tbsp curry powder

In large soup pan, melt coconut oil and sauté green onions and garlic for 1-2 minutes, until translucent.

Add chopped broccoli and stir. Cook over medium heat, stirring, until broccoli turns bright green.

Add basil and additional chopped greens. Cover and steam-sauté for 3-4 more minutes.

Transfer vegetables to food processor or blender. If using blender process in two batches. Add a little coconut milk and process until smooth.

Transfer vegetables and stock to pot and add remaining ingredients. Reheat gently and stir. Serve.
