Green Dream Broccoli Soup

Prep Time

5-10 minutes

 

Prep Notes

 

Yields

2 large servings or 4 small ones

 

Ingredients

  • 4 cups fresh steamed broccoli florets (feel free to use the stems, too)
  • 1 large cooked sweet potato, skin removed and discarded•½” knob of fresh turmeric root (or 1 teaspoon, ground turmeric)
  • 2 tablespoons, organic, pastured ghee or your choice of healthy fat (1/2 of a large avocado works too!)
  • 1 tablespoon MCT or coconut oil (if using coconut oil, melt it first)
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt, or, to taste
  • green onions, chopped, for topping (you can also steam them with the broccoli if you prefer. I like them better that way because they aren't as potent)

 

Directions

1. Combine the steamed broccoli, sweet potato, turmeric, ghee (or avocado), oil, lemon juice, and salt into the pitcher of a high-speed blender.

2. Process on high or until ingredients are smooth (about 90 seconds).

3. Serve warm, with green onions on top.
