Warming Autumn Broccoli Soup

Fresh, organic broccoli soup.

Here’s a simple recipe to warm you up. It’s packed with protein and calcium. 

Ingredients

  • 1 head of Broccoli -chopped
  • 2-3 cloves of Garlic – diced loosely
  • 2 TBS Ghee
  • 1 Onion
  • 1-3 cups of vegetable stock (make it at home ahead of time by sautéing onions, celery, carrots and turnips, add water (3-6 cups) bringing water to a boil, and simmering for an hour. Refrigerate and/or freeze. Use as a base for soups like this)
  • 1 cup beans (choose, black-eyed peas, white navy beans, butter beans, etc.)
Directions
  1. In a corning ware dish, add chopped and rinsed broccoli, garlic, 1 – 1/2 TBS ghee, and a tsp or two of filtered water.
  2. Put in oven or toaster oven (my preferred method) on 350˚ until roasted to desired brightness
  3. Meanwhile, sauté or sweat onion in 1/2-1 TBS of ghee until medium soft (smelling great) 
  4. Add in beans and cook through till hot
  5. Heat up stock on stove top
  6. Add all ingredients to high speed blender (broccoli + garlic, Onions and beans, and stock) and blend until smooth and creamy
  7. While blending squeeze in 1/3 of lemon, add salt to taste.
Serve with fresh lemon and a sprinkle of Celtic sea salt.
