Chef’s notes

I make this recipe when I’m craving a creamy bowl of soup but want to make it as healthy as possible. I’ve made it several times now and I absolutely love it as a meatless lunch. It’s an easy way to get a big bowl of greens into your diet.

Whether you're craving hot soup on a cold day or just need to hit the reset button on your diet, this healthy broccoli soup is deeply flavorful and very satisfying.

Ingredients

  • ½ yellow onion, diced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp. minced ginger
  • 1 jalapeño, minced
  • 2 tbsp. green curry paste
  • 2 broccoli heads, roughly chopped
  • 2 cans of coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp. lime juice
  • 2 tbsp. fish sauce
  • 1 handful of fresh spinach
  • Coconut oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Cilantro and naan bread to serve (optional)

Special equipment

Blender

Preparation

  1. Heat a large pot over medium heat. Add a tablespoon of coconut oil. Once the oil is melted, sauté the onion.
  2. After the onions are soft, add the garlic, ginger, jalapeño, and curry paste. Cook for an additional minute, allowing the aromatics to release their aromas. Be cautious, the jalapeños will sting your lungs!
  3. Next add the broccoli, coconut milk, lime juice, and fish sauce. Reduce the heat and cover with a lid. Every five minutes, give the broccoli a stir to mix.
  4. After 15 to 20 minutes, or when the broccoli is very soft, transfer the whole mixture to a high-powered blender and purée until smooth. Add the fresh spinach at the end for a vibrant green color if desired. You can also keep everything inside the pot and mix with an immersion blender. Taste and season with salt and pepper to finish.
  5. Serve warm as is or with a side of naan bread and cilantro.
