You are going to love this Paleo Broccoli Vegetable soup. Not only is it vegetarian and has so many veggies, but it is also so flavorful! It honestly tastes like broccoli and cheddar soup without all the guilt! You would be silly NOT to try it.
Ingredients
  • 2 lbs of fresh broccoli heads, cleaned and coarsely chopped
  • 2 lbs of fresh cauliflower heads, cleaned and coarsely chopped
  • 5 carrots, peeled and chopped (about 2-3 cups)
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons of Paleo Powder (or 2 tablespoons of Montreal Steak Seasoning or any other all-purpose seasoning to your liking)
  • 7 cups of vegetable or chicken broth
  • 1 (15 oz) can of coconut milk
Instructions
  1. Clean, chop and peal all your vegetables.
  2. Place all your vegetables in the largest sauce pan you own (mine is 8 quarts) and pour your 7 cups of broth into the pot with the chopped vegetables.
  3. Add your Paleo Powder and keeping the pot uncovered, bring to a boil. My vegetables were not fulling covered with the broth at the beginning of the cooking process and it is ok. Once the vegetables cook down a bit, the broth will be sufficient enough to cook the remainder of the vegetables on top.
  4. Cook your vegetables for about 20 minutes, pushing down the vegetables to be submerged in as much broth as possible.
  5. Once all the vegetables are tender enough to cut with a fork you are ready to blend. It is recipes like this that I love having an immersion blender. It is honestly worth every penny. Remember immersion blenders are relatively cheap when it comes to kitchen appliances. A good one can run you just $35 and that is not bad in my book. Turn off the heat, add your can of full fat coconut milk and blend your soup mixture right in the pan with your immersion blender or pour several batches in your blender until you get an overall smooth soup consistency.
  6. Serve and devour! The recipe has such simple ingredients and it is so easy to make. What more can you ask for? Enjoy!
