The hearty goodness of broccoli mixed with the zesty and fresh overtones of lemon and parsley bring you a delicious winter soup to nourish the body and delight the whole family.

Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 1½ medium heads broccoli, stems and florets separated, roughly chopped
  • 3–4 medium potatoes, roughly chopped
  • 1 medium onion, finely diced
  • 1 medium garlic clove, whole
  • 1 cup roughly chopped flat-leaf parsley, leaves and stems separated
  • 2 lemons, zested and juiced
  • 4½ cups filtered water
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • ¼ cup cold-pressed olive oil
  • 1 tsp quality salt*
  • ½ tsp cracked black pepper

Method:

  1. Place broccoli stems, potato, onion, garlic, parsley stems and just enough filtered water to cover in a saucepan. Cook for 15–20 or until the ingredients are soft.
  2. Add broccoli florets and simmer for another 5–7 minutes until broccoli is just cooked and still green. Add parsley leaves and zest. Simmer for2–3 minutes.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and blend with a stick blender until smooth and creamy. Add more water until soup is of the desired thickness.
  4. You can make it thicker in winter and thinner in summer.
  5. Enjoy a bowl of nutritious goodness year-round – of course, it tastes divine, too!
