Creamy Broccoli and Potato Soup

 

Rain or shine, its always time for a bowl of soup in my book. My husband hates when I make soup and its not raining (even if he thinks the soup is delicious), he just finds it odd that one would want soup on a hot day? I say soup it up!

I am a huge fan of potato-leek soup and this is a variation of it with a ton of broccoli in it for more flavor and more greens! It’s dairy free and still super creamy, thanks to the addition of the potatoes and the coconut milk. 

Next time your stuffed from the weekend and want a nice and clean meatless Monday, give this soup a try. It’s light, yet filling and very yummy! Enjoy!

  1. Heat 2 tbsp. olive oil over medium-high heat in a large pot. Add chopped garlic, onions, celery, carrots, and leek seasoned with salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper. Saute until tender, about 5-7 minutes.
  2. Add the broccoli, potato, broth, thyme, bay leaf. Season again with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer. Simmer covered for 30-45 minutes, or until potatoes and broccoli are fork tender.
  3. Remove bay leaf, stir in coconut milk.
  4. Using an immersion blender or blender, blend soup until smooth. Serve and enjoy (I garnished mine with some freshly chopped chives and even topped it off with some more crushed red pepper flakes!)

    This is by far the best soup, I have ever made. I shared it with friends and coworker whom I am in a produce share with – we get locally grown produce delivered to my job and share in the produce and price. This time I had opted to take home this huge head of broccoli. I followed all of your directions, Alex! I may have added too much pepper but it was still fantastic! Keep the soups coming, its almost about that time! Also, I saw your asparagus soup, I will probably make that soon as well.
