THAI BROCCOLI & PEA SOUP
VEGAN + GREEN GOODNESS + EASY-PEASY
A QUICK + EASY HEALTHY DINNER. JUST THROW EVERYTHING IN THE POT, COOK, AND BLITS, TA-DA!
This is another one of our weekly staples. There's something so wholesome and nourishing about a good pot of soup! I usually make us a soup after the weekend when we've maybe overindulged a bit and I can feel my body needs a comforting soup hug!
I love this soup as it's packed with greens and all my favourite Thai flavours. It's also super simple and quick to make. Just throw it all together and blitz.
TIP 01: Feel free to use Frozen Broccoli if that's easier, cheaper or faster.
TIP 02: If you want to add some more Green Goodness you can add a 2-3 handfuls of Baby Spinach or 1-2 cups of Frozen Spinach
1 Onion / chopped
2 Lemongrass stalks
2 Green Chilies / chopped
40g-50g fresh Ginger / minced or thinly sliced
1 big Broccoli head / roughly 500 - 700 grams / chopped into smaller florets
2 cups Frozen Peas
5 Lime Leaves / optional
1 tsp Green Curry Paste / optional
1 Vegetable Stock Cube
500ml - 750ml hot Water
1 can Coconut Milk
1 cup Fresh Coriander / chopped
Salt & Pepper
In a big pot, add the Coconut Oil, Onion, Lemongrass, Chili and Ginger and simmer until the Onion is going translucent.
Dissolve the Vegetable Stock Cube in 500ml of hot Water.
Add the Broccoli and Peas to the pot.
Add the Stock Water.
If you're using the Curry Paste, you can add that now. (Optional)
Add the Coconut Milk.
The liquid should almost cover the vegetables. You can add more water if you think it needs more liquid.
Put the lid on and bring to a boil. Simmer for 10 - 15 minutes or until the Broccoli is cooked.
Once cooked, remove from the heat and let it cool down slightly.
Add the chopped Coriander.
VERY IMPORTANT! Remove the Lemongrass Stalks before blending.
Carefully blend the soup using a Hand Blender (or a regular blender).
Return the pot to a low heat.
If you're using Lime Leaves, add them to the soup. If you don't have Lime Leaves grate the zest of the Lime into the soup.
Season to taste with Salt & Pepper.
Serve with a squeeze of Lime and a sprinkle of Fresh Coriander.
