Don't you just love those recipes you come across one day that make you think to yourself, "Why didn't I think of that???" Well, this is one of those. It's simply genius, yet so easy to make I've found myself making it over and over and over again!

Unfortunately I can't take credit for this recipe at all...I first discovered it while watching one of Gordon Ramsay's shows on the Food Network and while I'm not necessarily a huge fan of him, I am a huge fan of his recipes. I've never made anything of his that I didn't absolutely love, and this 3-Ingredient Broccoli Soup is absolutely no exception.

There's definitely something to be said about simplicity and if you've been around here for any length of time you know I love to keep it simple. Sometimes out of necessity, because I have two little ones, a busy working husband, and a food blog to run, but also because sometimes the simplest and freshest foods just taste the best. And keeping it simple often means you're making a healthy choice - and we all know how important that is, don't we?

All you'll need for this recipe is a very short list of ingredients, a good sturdy pot, a slotted spoon and a blender. That's it! And feel free to experiment with whatever garnishes you prefer. I've shared a list of my favourite ways to enjoy this soup, but if you're feeling the Parmesan cheese vibes or you feel like adding some roasted vegetables with balsamic vinegar on top, or maybe even some roasted chickpeas for even more added nutrition, go right ahead!

 Healthy 3-Ingredient Broccoli Soup

 INGREDIENTS:

  • 2-3 large heads of broccoli, washed and cut into chunks
  • a generous pinch of sea salt (up to 2 teaspoons)
  • water
    For garnishing:
  • grated cheddar cheese
  • freshly cracked black pepper
  • goat cheese, creme fraiche, sour cream, or coconut cream
  • chopped walnuts
  • olive oil for drizzling

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Start with a pot of boiling water. Be sure the water has reached a hard boil (over high heat) and add a generous pinch of sea salt (about 2 teaspoons). 
  2. Wash the broccoli and cut the florets off the stalks. It's fine if you have some weird-looking chunks; you'll be pureeing the soup so the pieces don't need to look pretty. Just try to make sure they're evenly sized so they cook evenly.
  3. Chuck the broccoli in the pot of boiling water and put the lid on.
  4.  Let the broccoli boil for about 4-5 minutes, or until you can stick a fork through one of the stems fairly easily but the broccoli isn't falling apart. Be careful not to overcook the broccoli; it should remain a nice dark green colour.
  5.  Don't drain the water from the pot. Instead, remove the broccoli pieces to the blender using a slotted spoon. 
  6. You'll be left with a pot full of broccoli stock. Pour some of the stock into the blender until the water level is at about half. You can discard the rest of the broccoli water, or you can save it and freeze it for the next time you make homemade vegetable or chicken stock.
  7. Puree the mixture until it's smooth.
  8. Serve in bowls and garnish with some grated cheddar cheese and cracked black pepper, or with a knob of goat cheese, some creme fraiche, sour cream, Greek yogurt, coconut cream, and some chopped walnuts, along with some cracked black pepper and a drizzle of olive oil (if you wish).
  9. Enjoy!
