Cauliflower and Broccoli Soup

by Ruth Almon

I do so love soups. The best dinner party I ever hosted was a soup buffet, accompanied by a choice of toppings – grated cheese, chopped chives, roasted pine nuts, and more. Nothing else – just a variety of soups. Not the most balanced meal, but it was a lot of fun.

Some of my favorite are blended soups; they’re a great way to feed picky kids. When my daughter was little, she’d poke at the soup asking me, What’s the yellow thing? What that green thing? I got sick of it and started blending them. Problem solved. After I bought a stick blender, this process became a lot easier. Funnily enough, as she was having the soup today, she said, broccoli and cauliflower are so good together. Who would have imagined my finicky child would become a vegetable lover.

Cauliflower and Broccoli Soup

2 Tbsp. coconut oil

2 onions, sliced

1 head of cauliflower

2 small heads of broccoli

2 small carrots

1 potato

1 cup bone broth

½ cup coconut cream

salt to taste

sliced chives to garnish

 

  1. In a large pot, heat the coconut oil and sauté the sliced onions.
  2. As the onions sauté, peel, wash, and chop the rest of the vegetables into large chunks.
  3. When the onions are soft, add all the veggies, the bone broth and about a cup or two of water. There should be barely enough water to cover the vegetables. Since I’m going to blend all the vegetables later, I prefer to keep the amount of liquid low to start with.
  4. Bring to a boil and reduce to low heat.
  5. When all the vegetables have softened, blend.
    Tip: Unless you need to serve immediately, let the soup cool. It’s much more pleasant to blend it when it isn’t boiling hot.Blending the Cauliflower and Broccoli Soup
  6. Add the coconut cream and enough water to dilute it to the thickness you desire and add salt to taste.
  7. Sprinkle chopped chives to garnish.
