Broccoli Leek Soup

IMG_3998.JPG

I love making a good soup but I want it to be quick and simple while still jammed with satisfying flavours.  I've created a new vegan broccoli soup and from beginning to end, it took less than 30 minutes to make.  If you're feeling the need for a quick and easy soup, give this one a try! Broccoli (aka: mini trees) are a great anti-cancer food also!

ingredients:

  • 6 cups water
  • 2 large bundles of broccoli chopped (approximately 650g) 
  • 3 leeks chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • vegetable bouillon
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup hemp hearts
  • 2 cups spinach

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Add all the items in a large sauce pan and bring to boil. Reduce heat to simmer for 10-15 min or till the vegetables are soft. Stir occasionally. 
  2. Mix everything with a hand mixer. You can make it very smooth or leave a few chunks if you'd like. 
  3. Serve warm. 

NOTES:

I like to make a double batch and freeze some for later. 
Add 1-2 cups of cooked quinoa for some extra healthy carbs. 
Sprinkle some Nutritional Yeast on top for some extra B vitamins.
