Creamy Broccoli Spinach Soup With Greek Yogurt | chefsavvy.com #recipe #soup #healthy #broccoli,

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.

Healthy Broccoli Spinach Soup With Greek Yogurt | chefsavvy.com #recipe #soup #vegetables #healthy 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.

How to make Creamy Broccoli Spinach Soup

To make this colorful soup start by sautéing 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. Cool soup slightly then add soup in two batches to a blender. (If you have an immersion blender you can do this in the pot). Pulse until thick and smooth. About 1-2 minutes each batch. Add 1 tablespoon of Greek yogurt to each batch (2 tablespoons total) and pulse to combine. Pour into bowls and garnish with extra Greek yogurt, chives and fresh cracked pepper. Serve immediately!

  • New Years resolutions are fun and eating healthy is always on my list 🙂 This soup is so easy and looks delicious! Pinned!

        This recipe looks delicious – I can’t wait to try it. Just wondering why it’s so important to blend the soup in two batches? If I use a stick blender can I not do it all at once in the pot before adding 2 tbsp of the yoghurt?
        Thanks!!

        • Nathan

          Hi Sian,

          You can do it all at once with a stick blender. The only reason to split it up is if it won’t fit in a blender in one batch. I hope this is helpful! Thank you for your comment!

    Love, love, love this recipe. I actually ate some for Breakfast the other morning. 🙂

  • Lori

    This soup is delicious and so easy! I added some cayenne pepper to give it a little kick.

    Yummy. I have made this over and over during our recent NZ winter months with a spinach/kale/bloc mix from the garden. Also added chickpeas for protein, as had some to use up and worked a treat as did doubling the receipt. Thx so much for sharing Kelley.

  • Daniel

    Just tried it! It’s delicious.. I used baby spinach for a milder taste. Well done!

  • Annie

    Absolutely delicious, healthy and nutritious, although it would be good if ingredients were in weight also. My family loved it.

  • Angela

    Delicious – who’d have thought broccoli and spinach taste so good. The Parmesan and yoghurt go perfectly thanks

  • Stacie

    This is DELICIOUS! subbed vegetable stock and added a squeeze of lemon at the end. Having some vegetable aversions during pregnancy and tremendously relieved that I now have a way to get my geens. Thank you for this great recipe.

      Hi Stacie,

      I’m so glad you enjoy the soup, thank you for commenting!

    Just made this tonight and will definitely be making it again! I doubled the garlic, and I don’t love plain yogurt, so I subbed a squeeze of lemon at the end. I also did a bunch of extra salt & pepper to taste at the end.

    Right after making this soup, I thought the flavor was good but missing a final touch. I let it sit while I cleaned up the kitchen, and the soup either melded awesomely in that time or grew on me. Either way, it’s 11:30pm, which is when I’d ordinarily be scouting for, like, ice cream, and I’m sitting here eating broccoli soup.
