Clean Broccoli & Bean Soup

These days it’s all about “clean eating”. This can mean slightly different things to different people. For me it’s all about eating unprocessed foods, foods with a small amount of ingredients, focusing on health not dieting and foods close to their original origin.

Wanting a healthier take on a comfort recipe I managed to come up with this recipe after doing a quick read of several recipes. If you know anything about my cooking it usually goes like this
1. Think of a meal
2. Read a dozen recipes of it online
3. Think about the recipes for a day or more
4. Make up my own from what I remember from all the recipes

Clearly there isn’t much logic or sense of order that goes into my cooking method, but by some chance my meals seem to turn out fantastic. At least my person taste tester ( aka boyfriend) will agree.

B&B Soup

Clean Broccoli & Bean Soup

1 can of Cannellini beans
3 big stalks of broccoli, cut
2 cups of vegetable stock ( I use an all natural product that includes a small amount of “extra” ingredients)
1 medium onion diced
1 glove of garlic, minced
2 tsp of olive oil
1 tsp of crushed red pepper flakes

1. Place pot on medium heat adding olive oil, garlic and onion, cook for about 3 minutes then add beans and stock
2. While this is cooking, place broccoli in a microwave safe dish with water at the bottom and cook for about 3-4 minutes until tender
3. Once beans and broccoli are cooked, add together in pot (leaving some broccoli aside for garnish). Stir. Then place into blender or food processor to puree.
4. Return back to pot and let simmer for about 20 more minutes to allow flavors to mix. Once done you may serve with broccoli to garnish.
5. Enjoy
