Super soup 3

This is one of my favourites from "The Primal Blueprint Cookbook. It is a great way to get your greens in.


2 tablespoons of butter
1 small onion
1 large garlic clove, chopped
250 ml of chicken stock/broth*
1 head of broccoli**
1 carrot
1 cup of coconut milk

*When using stock cubes, it will create a saltier taste so taste as you go along and if necessary, add more broccoli or carrots.

**Preferably you want to steam the broccoli while the onions are being cooked but if you boil them, only boil them for 3 minutes maximum.

Heat the butter in a saucepan. Add the onions and cook slowly. Don't let them burn. When translucent, add the garlic and cook for a few minutes. Do not let them burn.

Add the broth/stock and carrots. Turn the heat up high to a boil. Then add half the steamed/boiled broccoli and cook for a few minutes until the veg is soft. Turn off the heat and blitz the lot with a blender. Be careful as hot soup will splatter as you blend it.

Once it is in a smooth consistency, return to the heat, add the remaining broccoli and the coconut milk. Cook for a few minutes then serve!
