This soup doubles as a satisfying cream soup, and a detox recipe. Stuffed full of greens, ginger and garlic, this soup will leave you feeling great, and coconut milk lends healthy fats and a creamy texture. The soup was a bigger hit with adults than with our kids, but definitely still worth making when you’re feeling in need of something cleansing.

Yield: 10 servings

Prep time: 30 minutes (+ 20 minutes cook time)

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 leek, chopped
  • 2 inches of fresh ginger, grated
  • 3 heads of broccoli, chopped
  • 6 cups of packed greens (kale or spinach)
  • 6 cups of veggie broth
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 to 2 cans coconut milk (avoid the light coconut milk, it’s a waste of your money, as it’s just watered down coconut milk)
  • 1/4 each of chopped parsley, cilantro and mint
  • optional topping: grated cheese/daiya

Directions:

  • in large soup pot heat coconut oil over medium heat
  • saute garlic, onions, ginger and leeks until soft
  • add in broccoli and greens
  • pour in veggie broth and bring to a simmer
  • cook until broccoli is tender (~15 minutes)
  • add the chopped herbs and salt/pepper as desired
  • stir in coconut milk
  • remove from heat, blend with hand-blender
  • serve warm or cool, with grated cheese/daiya if desired
