This might be one of the healthiest soups ever! Not to mention, it is so so yummy!!! And let’s face it, that’s what we’re looking for! I was trying to figure out what to make for lunch yesterday, so I looked in the refrigerator and found some onions, broccoli, and spinach. Can you say super foods?!? Check out these pins that contain some of the health benefits of each of these super-good-for-you veggies!
WOW! That’s a TON of health benefits in just three simple vegetables! Considering these are the three main ingredients of this soup, you can see how good it is for you! I beefed it up a bit with some goat cheese, garlic, and sea salt to create a delicious and filling lunch! It was perfect!
BROCCOLI AND SPINACH SOUP
- 1/2 large red onion, chopped
- 1 Tbsp. olive oil
- 5 cups broccoli florets
- 3-4 cups baby spinach
- 2-3 oz. soft goat cheese, plus some for garnish
- 1/2 tsp. garlic granules
- 1/2 tsp. sea salt, plus more to taste
- parsley for garnish
1.) Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a large pot. Add the onions and cook for 5 minutes. Add the broccoli. Stir, and then fill the pot with enough water to cover the broccoli.
2.) Bring the pot to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until the broccoli is tender/soft (about 15 minutes. Add the spinach and allow to wilt completely.
3.) Remove from heat, and measure out 1 cup of the water you cooked the vegetables in. Set aside. Drain the vegetables using a strainer.
4.) In a food processor, add the drained vegetables, goat cheese, garlic granules, sea salt, and the cup of water you set aside. Process on high until completely smooth.
5.) Transfer to bowls, and garnish with some parsley and crumbled goat cheese.
Delicious and so so so nutritious! Enjoy! 🙂
