Recipe by Tifany Hamlin

1 large head broccoli, rough chop
1 large onion, diced
1 cup carrots, rough chop
1 large potato, peeled and chopped
4-6 cups vegetable broth or water
Sea salt & pepper, to taste
2-3 tbsps olive or coconut oil

  1. In a large soup pot, heat oil to a shimmer and sauté onions and carrots with a little salt until translucent and light golden brown.
  2. Add broccoli and potato. Cook for another 3 minutes.
  3. Add broth, salt and pepper and bring to boil. Reduce heat to simmer. Cover slightly and cook for another 30-40 minutes or until potato and broccoli are fork tender.
  4. Remove from heat and blend soup (using a stick blender or a stand blender in small batches) until all veggies are not longer visible. Taste and adjust salt and pepper.
  5. Serve with a drizzle of crème fraîche or good olive oil.
