INSTRUCTIONS For Mediterranean Detox Soup Recipe:
⭐Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Spray a baking pan with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
⭐Toss broccoli with 1 tablespoon olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and add to the baking sheet. Roast for 15 – 20 minutes, until broccoli has softened and browned. Rotate half way through.
⭐While the broccoli is roasting, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil in a large sauce pan over medium heat. Add garlic and shallot and saute until fragrant, 2 – 3 minutes. Add the spinach, peas and liquid and bring to a boil, stirring constantly until spinach has thawed. Season with salt and pepper. Turn down to a simmer and cover.
⭐When broccoli is done, add to the pot and keep covered for another 5 minutes.
⭐Remove the soup from the heat and, in batches, blend on high until smooth. Return to the pot, season with additional salt and pepper to taste.
⭐Serve immediately. Garnish with a drizzle of oil or chili flakes.
Just like the green smoothies it’s inspired by, this detox soup is super versatile. You can swap the peas with edamame, chickpeas, or white beans for extra protein. Garnish it with cooked quinoa, crispy chickpeas, or crumbled kale chips. You can also swap out the broccoli for any other green vegetable you have on hand, such as zucchini or kale.
