Vegan Coconut Broccoli Soup

Updated: Jun 7, 2018

Coconut Broccoli Soup

Straight from 101 Cookbooks | Serves: 8 cups | Time: ~20 min


1 14-ounce can of full fat #CoconutMilk 3 cloves garlic, smashed 1 large yellow onion, chopped 1 small serrano chile, stemmed and chopped (left this at the darn grocery store, subbed with Penzey's Bangkok Blend) 2 teaspoons fine grain sea salt 4 1/2 cups water 2-3 large heads of #broccoli (~1 1/2 lb.), cut into small florets 2-3 large handfuls of #spinach

Roasted almonds and green onion for garnish


Scoop a big spoonful of thick coconut cream from the top of the coconut milk can. Add it to a large pan over medium-high heat.

When hot, stir in the garlic, onions, chile, and salt. Sauté for a couple minutes, just long enough for everything to soften up.

Add the remaining coconut milk, and the water, and bring to a simmer before adding the broccoli and spinach. Simmer just long enough for the broccoli to get tender throughout, 2 - 4 minutes.

Immediately remove the soup from heat and puree with an immersion blender. (I used a regular blender and returned to heat.) Add more water if you feel the need to thin the soup out. Taste and add more salt if needed.

(Blog suggested serving with tofu cubes, toasted almonds, and lots of scallions. I added scallions and had bread on the side.)
