Here’s a super easy broccoli or asparagus soup recipe that is healing, delicious, and comforting. And, with the added collagen it is also a wonderful restorative food for your gut.  It takes only about 20 mins to make and you’ll have soup for a few days.

4 Cups Organic Broccoli Florets or Asparagus
1 Med Organic Onion, chopped
1 T. Grass-Fed Ghee or Coconut Oil
1-2 pinches of nutmeg (just tiny bit)
Salt and Pepper to taste (approx. 2 tsp. Salt and 1/4 tsp. Pepper)
Pinch of Cayenne Pepper. optional
1 T. Grass-Fed Beef Gelatin, optional
4-6 Cups Water or Chicken Broth
1-2 tsp Grass-Fed Ghee to stir on top

  1. Saute onion with a tablespoon of ghee or coconut oil in a large pot.
  2. Add broccoli or asparagus with 1 Tbl. of water and steam with onion for 2 to 3 minutes. Should be slightly tender, not mushy. You want the soup to retain a beautiful bright green, so be sure not to over steam the broccoli or asparagus.
  3. Blend onion and broccoli in Vitamix with water or broth.
  4. Stir in gelatin with the rest of the ingredients and simmer for a few minutes to blend flavors. Be sure to be careful with the nutmeg as it can overpower the flavors quite easily. Just a teeny, tiny bit and it will enhance the vegetable flavor, not dominate it.
  5. To thicken the soup you can always add some arrowroot powder. Just mix 1 to 2 Tab. in a bowl with 1/4 C of the blended soup, then add mix to your pot. Stir over warm heat.
  6. You can also sprinkle a bit of salt and pepper, herbs, a tsp of ghee, or walnuts on top for added flavor.
