Creamy Coconut/Lemon Broccoli and Spinach Soup

Hi gang 🙂 It has been a while in between recipe blogs (apologies) as this little lady has been a very BUSY lady!

I made a delicious soup last night and from great feedback off the Facebook page, I am going to share the recipe. Am rushing back to work soon so I will jump right into it!

Hope you enjoy 🙂

STEP 1: Gather your ingredients. For this you will need stock (I used 3L), quinoa, a head of broccoli, spinach/silverbeet, 1 brown onion, garlic (I used 10 cloves), coconut milk, 2 carrots, 2 lemons, coconut oil, hemp seeds (optional) and parsley (optional).

STEP 2 – With a little coconut oil, sauté the brown onion and crushed garlic cloves until fragrant. Add the chopped carrot and broccoli and stir. Cover pot and cook on low heat for 5 – 10 minutes.

STEP 3 – Add the spinach/silverbeet (as much as you desire) to the pot and stir. Add the stock/coconut milk and bring to boil and then let simmer for about 30 minutes. During this time in a separate pot, cook your quinoa (I used about a cup).

STEP 4 – Juice 1.5 lemons and add to the pot. Add the cooked quinoa and then blend with a stick blender. Add salt, pepper or more lemon if desired.

STEP 5 – Garnish with some parsley and hemp seeds (both optional) and drizzle with a little more lemon and serve. Enjoy some crunchy bread and vegan butter with it if you desire
