Super-Fast Cleansing Broccoli Soup Recipe

Sometimes you just need nourishing. You just get that craving for greens and goodness.

Other times you just need something QUICK, that is warming, filling and will keep you going – but not take hours to make.

This Cleansing Broccoli Soup is BOTH!

It takes just 10-15 minutes from start to finish, creates very minimal mess – and has been road tested with my 1 year old and 5 year old, both providing thumbs up. Well, the 1 year old showed he liked it by eating it without much fuss, rather than throwing his spoon on the floor and tipping the soup everywhere. Result.

Cleansing Broccoli Soup with Ginger, Mint & Spinach

Serves 2
Ingredients:

  • 1 large head of broccoli, roughly chopped(approx 400g)
  • 1 small brown onion, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 bunch of fresh mint, roughly chopped
  • 2 large handfuls of spinach
  • 1/2 cucumber, roughly sliced
  • 1.5 cm of fresh root ginger, grated
  • 3-500ml of organic vegetable stock
  • Himalayan salt & black pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp coconut or avocado oil

Instructions:

  1. Start by gently sauteeing the onion and garlic in the oil in a large pan for around 2-3 minutes, and then add the chopped broccoli
  2. Continue to gently warm through for another 1-2 minutes and then stir in the ginger, mint and pour over the stock – you can start with just 200-300ml and if this covers the broccoli, save the remainder for once you’ve blended it, to get the consistency you want
  3. Let this simmer for 3-4 minutes until the broccoli just starts to soften.
  4. Transfer everything to a blender, and add the spinach and cucumber (raw), and blend on high speed until everything is completely smooth
  5. Add more stock to get the consistency you like and serve with a sprig of mint atop each bowl and a little drizzle of avocado or olive oil

    I tried this recipe and it is DIVINE. It’s a really easy way to get tons of veggies in without it feeling like a chore. I added extra ginger and the results were just as delicious. One time I even added an avocado when I needed to stay full longer before my next meal, and the texture and taste were less delicious than the OG recipe but it was still aight and definitely filling! Thanks for this recipe, Ross!

    Can you list the amount of carbs in your recipes for those of us who are diabetic and have to count carbs? I also would appreciate it if you could put the measurements in your metric measurements but also in our American measurements. Thanks – can’t wait to try this recipe!

    Hey Ross love your movement and motivation and recipes .
    Recently I heard from Dave Asprey’s site that garlic are good for specific treatment but on regular Basis they hinder some functions of brain. U can verify and research more on that.Thanks

    Gorgeous recipe – thank you. I love adding spinach and cucumber and leaving them raw. what a fab idea.

    Interested that you don’t add the ginger with the onion. Is there a reason for that?

    I normally add garlic right the end, and almost not cook it at all. That way you get to have the (antibiotic) alicin, which is very easily destroyed by cooking.

    Love your work – thanks again!
