Skinny Creamy Broccoli Spinach Soup. Takes less than 30 minutes to make and only takes one pot!
The New Year is filled with lots of resolutions. Eat better, get more sleep and exercise. I am trying to conquer all three. Starting with eating better. This soup is just what you need to start your new year off right. Loaded with spinach, broccoli, garlic and Greek yogurt. No milk or cream needed. It’s super healthy, delicious and satisfying.
This is a super easy recipe with simple ingredients. Loaded with tons of fiber and vitamins. This soup packs 4 cups of broccoli and 4 cups of spinach. That’s about 2 cups of veggies for one serving!
Soup is one of my favorite meals to prepare during the winter months. Quick, easy and comforting.
This colorful soup has the same consistency of cream of broccoli soup without the milk or heavy cream. For flavor I added garlic, onion, Parmesan cheese and fresh pepper.
How is this soup so creamy without heavy cream or milk? Tons of veggies and not too much chicken stock. The soup gets finished off with just a bit of Greek yogurt. A super healthy clean soup. This soup will make you want to eat your vegetables.
Everything gets cooked in one pot making for an easy clean up. Don’t worry about chopping the onions fully. They will get puréed with the soup in the blender.
To make this colorful soup start by sauteing onions in olive oil in a large pot. Add in garlic and cook for one minute. Toss in chopped broccoli and cook for 10 minutes. Add in stock and cook for another 5-10 minutes until the broccoli is tender. Take off the heat and add in spinach and cook until wilted. Toss in Parmesan cheese and pepper.
When you are pureeing your soup in the blender it is important to split the soup into two batches. I like to add a dollop (1 tablespoon to be exact) of Greek yogurt to each batch and pulse for another quick second until combined. Pour into bowls and garnish with extra Greek yogurt, chives and fresh cracked pepper.
