It’s the time after the Thanksgiving feasts when it’s good to help your body heal by having a detox cleanse. My new Detox Broccoli Soup is a great cleansing recipe. With only 2 ingredients plus optional toppings, this Broccoli Soup is done within minutes and you can enjoy a nourishing and healthy soup. This easy soup recipe is a great way to eat more veggies and greens in your nutrition.
Fast and easy recipes fit perfectly to a hectic lifestyle. If you want to have a fresh recipe with a lot of vegetables, which you don’t have to make in advance, this Detox Broccoli Soup is exactly what you need. Nothing against making a meal in advance the day before – but really fresh tastes so much better than preheated sometimes. With this timesaving Detox Broccoli Soup recipe you can make yourself comfortable after a long hard day at work, or after big holiday feasts. And not just for yourself but also for your family and friends.
There are already a couple of soup recipes on Contentedness Cooking like my Pumpkin Soup or the Vegan Sweet Potato Soup with Kale – but none of them is so easy to make as this Detox Broccoli Soup. It’s such an easy eye-catcher recipe. Look at the greens! It is straightforward to prepare: just cook the broccoli in coconut milk for about 5 minutes until it softens. Let it cool a bit, put it in a bowl of blender or food processor blend until smooth. The coconut milk adds richness and creaminess to the soup. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg to your own liking. Many detox recipes can take bland and boring – not this one!
It is absolutely possible to double or triple the amount of the Detox Broccoli Soup, which also depends on your guests and for sure on your appetite. Basically I would say this recipe is suitable for 2 or 3 people, so feel free to make more or less with this easy recipe. If you like, add some sliced avocados, crushed macadamias and last but not least some chopped parsley to the soup to make a full meal from it.
- 1 broccoli
- 1 14 oz (400 ml) can coconut milk
- salt, pepper, nutmeg
- toppings (optional)
- crushed macadamias
- parsley, chopped
- Add the coconut milk and the broccoli (broken into florets) to a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Let simmer for about 5 minutes until the broccoli softens. Remove from heat.
- After letting it cool a bit, transfer to a blender and process until smooth. Transfer back to the saucepan. Reheat and season to taste with salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Serve with optional toppings
