Load up on antioxidants with this easy and comforting soup, packed with vibrant green veggies and collagen-rich bone broth.
Eating your greens is easy when they’re steeped in a garlicky bone broth. This soup is full of antioxidants from fresh broccoli, asparagus, and garlic. Add to that a batch of flavorful, gut-healing bone broth, and you’ve got yourself a big bowl of comfort.
Finish this soup off with a perfect creamy drizzle of velvety, lemon-infused coconut cream, and a few sprinkles of chopped tarragon.
Don’t Rush The Veggies
An integral part of building the flavors of this soup is browning the vegetables.
First, give the onions some time over medium heat to sweeten up. You’ll know they’re ready when they’re translucent.
Next, get a golden sear on the asparagus and broccoli. Finally, cook the garlic. Your nose is your friend on this step. Once the garlic is fragrant and golden, it’s time to deglaze with the bone broth.
Be sure to grab a wooden spoon to scrape up any browned bits that may be at the bottom of the pan.
Helpful Tips To Get You Started:
- Pick the right broth. Thick, rich bone broth is the foundation of this soup. Not only does it add flavor and texture, but it also does wonders for your gut.
- Process the soup in batches. Overloading the food processor will only lead to a big mess and an unevenly puréed soup. Take your time and purée the soup in batches, processing each batch until it’s completely smooth.
