CREAM OF GREEN

Want a healthy soup that still has a creamy taste? Well then, here is the perfect soup for you! Full of whatever green vegetables I found in my fridge, this soup is blended until smooth and has a touch of cream. While it’s not required, the cream adds that little bit of naughtiness to an otherwise super healthy dish.

Cream of Green

Don’t feel restricted to the green vegetables in this recipe. You can definitely add other green vegetables to this soup or swap some for others. I simply used what I had in my fridge so if you have broccoli but no leek, go for it! If you want to make this even healthier, try making and using your own homemade vegetable stock instead of using bouillon.

HEALTHY BROCCOLI SOUP

A healthy broccoli soup for Sunday afternoon

Or really any afternoon… I just love eating soup on Sundays, although it’s usually Rosół (Polish Chicken Noodle Soup), the tradition has been ingrained in me since childhood. This time however, I decided to make a deliciously light and healthy broccoli soup. It was so quick and easy to make and really hit the spot! My partner and I are such lovers of the soup and sandwich combo, so I paired this with a light wrap.
