Green Goddess Summer Soup

5 greens and 4 other things make this light summer garden soup. The beautiful bright green color, mood enhancing aroma and creamy texture will make you take a second helping.  I ate it for breakfast the next morning and was filled with happiness and energy.  This soup covers all the popular food categories: organic, vegan, paleo, gluten and dairy free and is absolutely loaded with vitamins and minerals.  All the ingredients in the recipe below are organic, so I have not written it next to each thing.  Use a pot or pan large enough for 8 cups of Green Goddess Soup. 

 RECIPE

 Soup Base

3 Tbl olive oil

1 medium Vidalia onion.  Can substitute any onion, even scallion or leeks.

3 garlic cloves.  The garlic flavor really comes through. Use a lightly with the first batch.

1 Vegan chicken broth cube

Pinch of salt to get the onions to release moisture 

1 C fresh basil leaves

½ C fresh chopped parsley leaves

Gently simmer until the onions and herbs soften and cook.  About 10 minutes.

 

Greens

About 2 C loose leaf baby spinach. I grabbed 2 handfuls.

About 1 C kale.  Any kind will do.  I used purple and grabbed one handful.

About 1 C broccoli floweretts.

Add 6 cups of water. Gently boil until greens just tender.  Blend until smooth.  Use a hand immersion, standard blender or food processor.  Return to pot and add coconut milk and salt to taste.  Bring to boil and reduce to simmer (BTBRTS). Soup is on!

BTW:  My husband is a foodie and likes to try different things.  He really liked this summer soup and offered a few suggestions to tweak the flavor.  “Leave out the white pepper, it’s too hot for the lightness of the soup.” So I made another batch and this is it.  Cheers!
