Broccoli Soup

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.

  1. Vegan? You have bone broth in the short list of ingredients. I don’t know any veggies with a skeletal system.

  2. I made this soup for my boyfriend and I last night! I loved the simplicity of the ingredients and cooking and really enjoyed the taste. My boyfriend is a typical junk food eater and said it was good but tasted just like broccoli puree! (Which it pretty much is)! Haha we kept it a bit chunky so it would have more texture but I will be making it again.

  3. This was really good – I haven’t been able to make this soup very well at all in the past. Thanks very much!! ;-)

  4. I am going to try this with just broccoli and add garlic olive oil so it is SIBO friendly and see if it works for you. I will let you know. As always, thanks for the inspiration Elana!!

  5. This soup is so simple yet so delicious. I wasn’t sure what to do with all the broccoli that I harvested from my vegetable garden this week, but this was the perfect solution! I added some fresh garlic to cook along with the onions and instead of using 8 cups of water, I used 4 cups of chicken stock, 3 cups of water and 1 cup of coconut milk. The whole family enjoyed it thoroughly.
