Homemade Warming Soups

As the weather turns colder, I want to share with you some homemade warming and nutritious soups that are easy to make and packed full of goodness. I love to make a whole batch of soup and store it in the freezer for cold and rainy days when you want something healthy but you just can’t be bothered to cook.

Cream of Broccoli & Kale Detox Soup

Ingredients

2 tbspCoconut Oil
1 onion(s)Sweet onion (large)
8 clove(s)Garlic (minced, use more depending on how garlicky you want your soup)
4 cupBroccoli, raw (chopped)
4 cupKale (destemmed, chopped)
6 cupWater, filtered
2 scoop (heaping)Bone Broth Protein,
1 whole lemon(s)Lemon juice
1 tspSalt and pepper (to taste)

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onions and let sweat about 5 minutes.

2. Add garlic and cook another 3 minutes.

3. Add broccoli and cook for 3 minutes or until it becomes a vibrant green colour. 

4. Add kale and cook until kale is wilted.

Pour in water and bone broth, stir well and cook on a low simmer for about 15 minutes, until broccoli is completely soft. 

Place everything into a high-powered blender, or use an immersion blender to blend until smooth. 

Pour everything back into the soup pot, add lemon juice, salt, and pepper to season to taste.

I like to sometimes add a scoop of dairy-free coconut yogurt and sprinkle over-the-top pumpkin and sesame seeds. This is also great accompanied by a big chunk of toasted spelt loaf.
