Ingredients

  • 1/2 sweet onion (chopped)
  • 4 garlic cloves (chopped)
  • 1 small head broccoli (chopped) (about 2-2 1/2 cups)
  • 2 stalks celery (chopped)
  • 1 cup green peas (I used frozen)
  • 3 green onions
  • 2 3/4 cups low sodium vegetable broth
  • 4 cups leafy greens (I used baby kale, baby spinach, and baby swiss chard)
  • 1 15 oz can cannellini beans (or 1.5 cups cooked)
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh dill
  • 5 fresh mint leaves
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup lite coconut milk (optional)

Instructions

  • In a soup pot over medium heat, heat 1/4 cup vegetable broth and saute the sweet onion for 3-4 minutes, until starting to soften.
  • Add the garlic and saute another 1-2 minutes.
  • Add the remaining 2 1/2 cups vegetable broth, broccoli, celery, peas, and green onions. Turn down the heat to medium-low and simmer 10-15 minutes until vegetables are tender.
  • Transfer the soup to a blender and add the leafy greens, beans, lemon juice, dill, mint and salt. Use the tamper to pack the greens down. Blend until smooth. You may need to work in batches if your blender is on the smaller side.
  • Pour the soup back into the soup pot, taste and adjust seasonings as necessary. Add the coconut milk, if desired, and stir to combine.

Notes

~You don't need to be precise with your knife cuts since this is all going in the blender anyway. A rough chop is fine.
~Use any mix of greens you like - kale, spinach, chard, arugula, red or green leaf lettuce, watercress.
