Broccoli & Kale: Superfood Soup

broccoli cream soup

Not only do broccoli and kale contain a bunch of vitamins, minerals, fiber and other nutrients. These two superfoods also contain an array of health-promoting compounds like antioxidants and detoxifying compounds.

You will know why you should make these foods a staple in your diet after you read my Wednesday blog post.

I have an awesome cooking hack to keep the healthfulness of raw broccoli and kale, without eating them raw! Check out my new soup recipe below:

Recipe

Serves 4

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 tbsp garlic, chopped

2 large handfuls kale

4 stalks celery, chopped

4 stalks broccoli chopped
8 cups broth
½ cup tahini
2 tsp sea salt

Instructions

  •  Sautee garlic in olive oil in a large soup pot. At the same time do steps #2 and #3.

  • Add half of the raw kale, celery, and broccoli to your high-speed blender (in that order). Cover with up to 4 cups of broth and blend.

  • Pour soup into the pot with the sauteed garlic. Do the same for the other half of the veggies and broth.

  • Heat soup and simmer for up to 5 minutes

  • Remove from heat. Add tahini and sea salt. Stir well.

Serve & enjoy!

Tip: If you want the soup to be extra creamy, you can re-blend after it's heated.
