Here i am back in town, back on the www and back with that strong wish to get a bit healthier after all those yummy but heavy Christmassy meals. I spent the last two weeks at my moms and found in between the renovations some time to cook this delicious light soup. It is for me the perfect way to balance my diet and find some vitamins to fight the cold.
Kale is one of the most nutrient food containing high amounts of Vitamins A, C, K, as well as fiber, magnesium, iron and more calcium per calorie than milk... Something noteworthy when you were, as me, a big consumer of milk products.
Broccoli on its side contains many nutrients, such as folate, soluble and insoluble fibre, vitamins C and A, and calcium, which are needed for numerous functions in the body.
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- 1 diced onion
- 2 crushed garlic cloves
- 4 cups of vegetable broth
- 1 broccoli
- 2 handfuls of kale
- salt and pepper
Place in a hot pan some olive oil with the onion and the garlic. Let it turn gold after few minutes. Then add the broth, the kale and the broccoli. Bring it back to boil then let it simmer for 5-10minutes so the broccoli cooks. Add salt and pepper as desired, even though i think broth brings enough salt to the soup. Blend the soup until it gets smooth.
PS: you can add tahini, lemon, cream (for the more hungry) on top of it :)
Let me know how you find it !
