Sometimes, it’s so hard to get enough vegetables, isn’t it? When I’m on the Whole30, I find it easy to get enough protein and healthy fats (avocado alllllll day, everrrryday, am I right?) but struggle to get in enough veggies, especially when the thought of eating one more salad makes me want to run and hide. My solution is this Broccoli and Kale Green Soup – it’s simple and easy and gives me a veggie boost when my meals are lacking.

There’s something about the simplicity of this soup that makes me crave it. It’s such a clean flavour that it makes me feel good and healthy eating it. Ingredients matter in making simple food. Normally, I’d say it’s totally fine to substitute onions for leeks but not in this case. I mean, you CAN, but I wouldn’t because then you’d be missing that sweet, gentle oniony flavour that only leeks can bring. And you wouldn’t want that, would you? I don’t want that for you. You deserve the best.

Green Soup - Broccoli and Kale Soup
Making this soup is a breeze and it keeps well in the fridge. I make it once a week and eat small bowls of it as a side-dish.  If you’re the kind of soup eater that likes toppings or you’re having guests you’d like to impress with your soup style – cilantro, pumpkin seeds and a lime wedge are a nice touch.

Instructions
  1. Heat avocado oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add leeks and saute for 2 minutes until translucent. Add garlic and saute for another 2 minutes.
  2. Add broccoli stems and florets and saute for 3 minutes until bright green. Add stock to the pot and allow to come up to a simmer, about 4 minutes. Once simmering, add kale, spinach and kosher salt and cook until broccoli is tender about 10 minutes.
  3. Once broccoli is tender, remove from heat and use an immersion hand blender or high powered blender to blend the soup until creamy and smooth.
  4. Add the lime juice and adjust seasoning, adding more salt, if necessary.
  5. Garnish with fresh cilantro and pumpkin seeds, if you'd like.
