How To Make This Spinach Broccoli Soup Recipe?
Once you have gathered your ingredients, this vegan soup takes a little less than 20 minutes to make.
You start by adding some oil that is best for high-heat sautéing, like grapeseed oil, to a large heavy bottom pan (which preferably has a lid).
Then peel and roughly chop up the onion, the ginger, and the garlic cloves. Wash the celery and roughly chop it up as well.
Turn the stove onto medium heat/flame and toss in the peeled and chopped onion, ginger, garlic, and ginger. Let them sauté for about 5 minutes. During this time, stir this mixture a bit, so the ingredients do not burn.
After the ingredients have sautéed for 5 minutes, add in the coriander, turmeric, smoked paprika, vegetable broth, frozen broccoli florets, and frozen spinach. Cover the pan and let these simmer for about 10 minutes.
When the ten minutes are up, take the pan off the heat. Then, blend the ingredients until somewhat smooth. You can do this by carefully placing this spinach broccoli soup into a blender and blending until; smooth. Or, you could use an immersion blender and blend the ingredients right there in the pan.
Finally, season this soup with salt and black pepper.
Instead of frozen broccoli and frozen spinach, fresh broccoli and fresh baby spinach leaves can be used while making this vegetarian soup. If kale is your jam, use kale instead of the spinach.
If you do not like celery, use a green bell pepper instead.
The vegetable broth used can easily be replaced with vegetable stock. And, if you don’t mind this not being plant-based, use some chicken stock or chicken broth instead.
How to serve this soup?
Ladle spoonfuls of this soup into bowls and serve it warm, garnished with some chopped fresh parsley.
Being on the subject of garnishes, if you happen to have a few more broccoli florets on hand, you could roast them, bake them, or air fry them and use them as a decoration for this easy soup.
Storage And Reheating
I usually make a big batch of this soup, place any leftovers in an airtight container, and place the container in the fridge. This soup will last for about 7 to 10 days.
To reheat, add the soup to a microwave-safe bowl, cover it, and microwave for 2–3 minutes or until the desired temperature is reached. You could also reheat this by placing the quantity you think you will need in a pan or soup pot, and heating it over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes, or until it is the desired temperature.
