How to make broccoli soup

  • Take your broccoli and remove the stems from the head. Slice all the broccoli stems the same size (1/8 inch thick). You should have about 3-4 cups of stems. In a medium sized soup pot ( I used my Le Creuset ) on medium heat add olive oil, broccoli stems, onion, and a tsp of salt. Cover the soup pot and cook for 10 minutes stirring occasionally (don't let the vegetables brown)
    Add the water and half of the broccoli crowns, bring to a boil. Cover and cook for 30 minutes. Then add 3 cups spinach to the pot and cook for 2 minutes. Transfer everthing to a vitamix (in batches if need be) and puree for 1 minutes until bright green. Adjust the seasoning if need be.
