Broccoli & Basil Soup

Broccoli has a strong, positive impact on our body’s detoxification system, it is also a rich source of fiber, Vitamin C, beta carotene, folate, as well as a variety of other important nutrients. Broccoli has fantastic anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant effects in our bodies, it is low carbohydrate and helps support a healthy digestive system. Basil has been shown to have some great antibacterial properties. This soup is very low in carbohydrates, high in fibre and a great source of nutrients.

1 onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, crushed
500g broccoli, chopped
500g cauliflower, chopped
Bunch basil, including stems
1.5L Chicken Bone Broth (use veggie stock if you are vegan or vegetarian)
1 avocado, chopped
Salt & pepper to taste

Pop everything except the basil and avocado in your slow cooker or a big pot and let it simmer for a few hours until the veggies are nice and soft. Add the basil and avocado and blitz with a stick mixer or food processor until smooth. You are ready to eat! It is pretty delicious with a nice big dollop of natural yoghurt 🙂
