The color of this soup doesn’t look like much, I know, but the taste is great! You can swap out the broccoli for an equal amount of cauliflower if the color has you or your little family members totally weirded out. The flavor won’t change too much, and it’ll be more yellow than anything.
3 tablespoons coconut oil or avocado oil
1 small white onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
5 cups (420 g) broccoli florets
1 (13½-oz/400-ml) can full-fat coconut milk
1½ cups (355 ml) chicken bone broth
1 (2-in/5-cm) piece fresh ginger root, peeled and minced
1½ teaspoons turmeric powder
¾ teaspoon finely ground sea salt
⅓ cup (55 g) collagen peptides (optional)
¼ cup (40 g) sesame seeds
- Melt the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until translucent, about 10 minutes.
- Add the broccoli, coconut milk, broth, ginger, turmeric, and salt. Cover and cook for 15 minutes, or until the broccoli is tender.
- Transfer the broccoli mixture to a blender or food processor. Add the collagen, if using, and blend until smooth.
- Divide among 4 bowls, top each bowl with 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds, and enjoy!
