Creamy Broccoli Soup Ingredients
1 head of broccoli – roughly chopped – cut the hard layer from the stalk and chop the stalk up as well.
1 avocado (this is not added until the last step)
2-3 inches of leek chopped
2 tablespoons of Coconut Aminos
1 teaspoon of curry powder
2 tablespoons of chia seeds
Creamy Broccoli Soup Method
Half-fill a large saucepan with water, (the water should cover the ingredients – adjust as necessary) start heating the water as you add the ingredients.
Add the chia seeds first and stir well so that they don’t all clump together.
Add all the other ingredients except the avocado.
Cook until the broccoli is tender.
Turn the heat off.
Add the avocado.
Using a stick blender, blend all these ingredients together.
Keep blending until it is smooth.
Now is the time to do a taste test. This will depend on your family and their preferences. We like a little hot kick so I may add a little more curry or even a sprinkle of hot sauce. This recipe is deliberately free from added salt. If you get the other flavors right, you will not miss the salt. The Coconut Aminos does contain salt, I use the barbecue one as it has the least salt.Creamy broccoli soup is one awesome recipe to help combat inflammation Click To Tweet

Benefits of Broccoli
“It’s no coincidence that more than 300 research studies on broccoli have converged in one unique area of health science—the development of cancer—and its relationship to three metabolic problems in the body. Those three problems are (1) chronic inflammation (2) oxidative stress, and (3) inadequate detoxification.” (Source : The Worlds Healthiest Foods)
“These include significant amounts of vitamin C, vitamin K, dietary fiber, folate, potassium, selenium, vitamin A,manganese, tryptophan, vitamin B6, and phosphorus. In terms of unique organic compounds, broccoli is a rich source of phytonutrient glucosinolates, flavonoids, and various other antioxidant compounds that boost our health in a major way!” (Source: Organic Facts )
