Equipment

  • Cutting board
  • Sharp knife
  • Dutch oven or large pot
  • Immersion blender

Ingredients 

  • 1 large head of broccoli
  • 1 onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil or preferred cooking oil
  • 4 cups (900 ml) vegetable broth more as needed
  • cup (60 g) blanched almonds
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder optional

Instructions

  • Wash the broccoli. Cut it into relatively small pieces (including the stalk). The smaller the pieces, the quicker they will cook.
  • Peel the onion and the garlic cloves. Roughly chop the onion and crush the garlic with the flat side of your knife.
  • Heat a Dutch oven or a soup pot with your preferred cooking oil. When hot, sauté the onion and garlic over medium-high until fragrant.
  • Add in the almonds and sauté for a few minutes over medium heat until they turn golden.
  • Add in the broccoli and sauté for 5 minutes.
  • Pour in the vegetable broth. Cover with a lid and simmer for 35 minutes or until the broccoli stems are soft.
  • Blend with a stick blender. Add more vegetable broth (or water) for a thinner soup consistency.

Notes

  1. Storage tips: fresh broccoli soup keeps in the fridge for 3 days if stored in an air-tight container. You can freeze it for 3-4 months.
  2. Reheating tips: you can reheat this broccoli soup in the microwave or on the stovetop over low-medium heat. Note that this broccoli almond soup thickens as it sits, especially when refrigerated. You may need to add a splash of vegetable broth (or water) to thin it out as you reheat it.
