A piping hot bowl of this vegan Broccoli Soup is the perfect dish for today. Why? We’re expecting a nice balmy high here in Boulder of 15 degrees, while we’re buried in snow from yesterday’s storm.
I was fortunate enough to spend yesterday, my Sunday, at a yoga class, and then hiking the gorgeous Mount Sanitas in the snow. As you can see, thus far, the new year is treating me well.
If you’re looking for a healthy soothing recipe to help kick off your new year, this is it. Simple (this gluten free soup is made of a mere 5 ingredients), warming, and easy to digest, it’s the perfectly healthy treat for cold winter days and nights. Serve it with a salad and you have a quick and easy dinner that the whole family can enjoy.
- Heat oil in a large pot and saute onion over medium to low heat until soft, about 15 minutes
- Add broccoli and saute for 5-10 minutes
- Add water and salt and cook until broccoli is soft about 15 minutes
