What Is Broccoli Spinach Soup, Exactly?
This vibrant green 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.
But 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. It’s a super healthy clean soup that will make eating your daily vegetables fun!
This is easy broccoli soup recipe is packed with simple, wholesome 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 per serving!
Plus, 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.)
All you need to make this Creamy Broccoli Soup is: extra virgin olive oil, an onion, garlic, broccoli, low-sodium chicken stock, fresh spinach, Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, and plain Greek yogurt.
Serve with an extra dollop of Greek yogurt, some chopped parsley or chives, and some crusty bread to complete the meal!
