Broccoli & Collard Green Soup

garnished w/ almond yogurt, peas, pumpkin seeds, sunflower sprouts & hemp seeds

 

In NYC there is a place classed juice press & I used to get their green soup all the time! It was the perfect bowl of soup when I only had 30 minute lunch break. Ah I was so obsessed with it I used to get a whole carton & bring it home.

Now I can't get it anymore so decided to make a similar one for those days I'm craving it. This version isn't exact but it was close enough! I love the way the spirulina adds a different flavor because who usually puts the in anything but a smoothie.


For the garnish I just used what we had around the house. I had Kite Hills Almond Yogurt & a pack of peas that I boiled the night or two before.

Top the soup you can also add some nutritional yeast! It's delicious!

Ingredients:

5 cups Vegetable Broth (or water)

1 small Onion

1 head of Broccoli

5 Cremini Mushrooms

1 medium Carrots

4 Callard Greens, leaves

¼ tsp. Spirulina

½ tsp. Balsamic Glaze

¼ tsp. Shawarma spice

⅛ tsp. Salt


Garnish (this the garnish amount for a personal bowl):

½ tbsp. Peas

1 tsp. Almond Yogurt

1 tsp. Pumpkin seeds

⅛ tsp. Hemp Seeds

2 Sunflower Sprout, leaves


Directions:

Everything is going to be blended so you don't have to be so precise about the size.

  1. Cut the onions in half & then cut into medium size cubes. Sautee in the pot with a little water or oil.

  2. Peel & cut the carrots then add them to the pot with the onions. Let those cook for a few minutes.

  3. Add a little water if you need. Then add cut broccoli florets & sliced mushrooms.

  4. Then, cut the collard green leaves into thin strips. Add them to the pot with the rest of the vegetable broth. Cover & let cook on a medium low flame for about 45 minutes.

  5. Once the vegetable are al soft & cooked let the soup cool for a bit before adding to the blender (When adding hot liquid to the blender don't fill it to high & place a towel over the top while you blend so the steam comes out. If you have a hand blender that works well & you can just blend it up right away.

  6. Once the liquid is blended at it to another pot & repeat until the whole soup is blended. The soup should have no chunks & be extra smooth.

  7. Add in the spices & balsamic glaze. Mix it well & reheat.

  8. Once the soup is boiled scoop some out into the bowls & top with the garnish.

  9. For the garnish I usually swirl the yogurt around the top & then sprinkle the rest of the stuff where ever it falls.



Serve & Share with Love
