Okay.. maybe it is a little weird to have soup for breakfast, but with the temperature a bit cooler or colder, warm foods have been my go to as of lately.

Depending on my mood I have a side of avocado toast with it, or maybe some spicy hot chocolate. OH yes. I did go there.

I use bone broth for it’s amazing health benefits, you can use veggie broth
I add a mixture of hemp hearts + cashews to make it creamy and keep it dairy free. Omit the cashews if you have a nut allergy.
You can swirl in some coconut milk or yogurt or sour cream at the end if you like.
You can leave it chunky and not completely puree it.
Oh and feel free to add something like onion or garlic if you want, I leave them out because my tummy doesn’t agree with them.
More good news babes: not only is this soup dairy free, gluten free and incredibly DELICIOUS , but it is also incredibly high in vitamin A, C, K and D along with high in zinc.

CREAMY SPINACH & BROCCOLI HEMP SOUP
2-3 inches of fresh ginger
3 cups of fresh or frozen broccoli
3 cups of frozen spinach
3.5 cups of bone broth or veggie broth
1/2 cup of hemp seeds + more to garnish
1/4 cup of raw cashews
1/4 cup of nutritional yeast + more to garnish
3 T of hemp oil + more to garnish
salt + pepper to taste
In a large pot add all of the ingredients but the hemp seed oil, and cook for 5-8 minutes on medium low heat. Turn it off and you can either blend it up with your blender or immersion blender. I use my Blendtec blender. Blend until smooth.
Check seasoning and add more salt + pepper if needed. Swirl in the hemp oil.
When ready to serve add more hemp seeds + oil and nutritional yeast. Enjoy warm or at room temperature.
I used this hemp oil in the recipe, you can use whatever hemp oil you want and if you don’t have any, use olive oil or avocado oil. It adds healthy fats and makes it creamier.
I don’t peel or grate the ginger, when you are blending the soup it just incorporates in. Just make sure you wash the ginger really well prior to adding it to the soup.
If you are using fresh broccoli cook until the broccoli is tender, I prefer to use frozen broccoli because it is already prepped for me and makes it easier.
