Here’s a simple, protein-filled soup recipe that you can make with frozen broccoli. It’s a great way to eat something that’s comforting while staying on your healthy eating plan.
1 head garlic, the top sliced off
2 pounds Broccoli OR 2 (10.8 oz) bags of frozen broccoli or cauliflower
1 teaspoon olive oil
32 ounces bone broth
½ cup unsweetened Greek yogurt
sea salt and black pepper to taste
1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Wrap the garlic head in foil and roast in the oven for 50 minutes.
2. Wash the broccoli and cut into 2-inch pieces. On a large, rimmed baking sheet combine the broccoli pieces with the olive oil. Roast in the oven for 20 minutes. OR if using frozen broccoli simply spread over a foil-lined baking sheet and roast for 18 minutes at 450 degrees F.
3. In a high speed blender, or food processor, squeeze the roasted garlic out of its skins, add the roasted broccoli, yogurt and broth. Blend until smooth.
4. Pour the mixture into a pot and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
