SAMPLE RECIPE: Zesty Broccoli Soup
Gluten-free / Lactose-free / Paleo / Soy-free / Vegetarian
Serves 4 / Prep time: 10 minutes / Cook time: 20 minutes
For this recipe, try to purchase the broccoli fresh because as soon as broccoli is cut from the main plant, its vitamin C content begins to degrade. If you need to store it for a day or two, place it in a plastic bag without washing it, remove as much air as possible, and store in the refrigerator’s crisper drawer.
1. In a large soup pot over medium heat,
melt the ghee.
2. Add the onion and garlic, and sauté for 5 minutes.
3. Add the broccoli, carrot, and celery, and sauté for 2 minutes.
4. Stir in the broth, salt, lemon juice, and lemon zest, and season with pepper. Bring to a simmer, and cook for about 10 minutes. Serve immediately.
PREPARATION TIP: This soup can be served chunky, or puréed with an immersion blender (or standard blender) for a smoother consistency.
- 1 tablespoon ghee
- 1 medium white onion, diced / 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 head broccoli, roughly chopped
- 1 carrot, chopped / 1 celery stalk, diced
- 3 cups vegetable broth
- ½ teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice / ½ teaspoon lemon zest
- ½ teaspoon salt / Freshly ground black pepper
