Broccoli Basil Detox Soup Recipe

ingredients

  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 yellow onion, chopped

  • 8 cups broccoli, chopped

  • 4 cups cauliflower, chopped

  • 6 cups veggie or bone broth

  • 2 cups spinach, raw

  • 4 cups basil, fresh

  • 1 can garbanzo beans, rinsed & drained

  • 1 avocado

  • 1 tsp salt (or to taste depending on salt level of broth you use)

    Optional, but highly recommended: crunchy chickpeas for serving.

preparation

  1. In a large pot on the stovetop, heat olive oil and garlic over medium high heat.

  2. Once the garlic starts to brown, add onion and continue to sauté until onions starts to become tender.

  3. Add broccoli, cauliflower and broth to pot and reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer for ~5-10 minutes, or until broccoli and cauliflower become tender but not overcooked.

  4. Stir in spinach, basil, garbanzo beans, avocado and salt.

  5. Using an immersion blender or regular blend, mix until creamy.

Serve hot with crunchy chickpeas instead of croutons for an extra hit of crunch.
