Little Green Goddess Soup


  • 1 Tablespoon of Coconut Oil
  • 1 Large White Onion
  • 2 Cloves of Garlic
  • 1 & 1/2 Teaspoons of Cumin
  • Pinch of Coarse Salt
  • 350g of Broccoli
  • 100g of Kale
  • 100g of Spinach
  • 1L of Veg/Chicken Stock
  • 200ml of Coconut Milk

Topping: Tahini, Coconut Milk, Toasted Nuts & Seeds

Sometimes you just need a bowl of green goodness to get you glowing from the inside out. This soup is amazing, in every sense. It’s incredibly nutritious, bursting with vitamins, fibre, iron, magnesium and antioxidants and it tastes sensational. It’s also remarkably easy to make. Add even more flavour and a little crunch by sprinkling on some toasted nuts and seeds and a drizzle of runny tahini! IMG_0979

Dice the onion and mince the garlic. Add a tablespoon of coconut oil to a large pot on medium heat and add in the garlic and onion. Sprinkle in the cumin and a good pinch of coarse salt and stir well. Pop the lid on and let the onions soften for about 3 minutes.

Chop the broccoli into florets and remove the stalks from the kale. Add the broccoli, spinach and kale to the pot and toss everything. Pour in the stock and stir. Adjust the heat to allow it to come to a simmer and then pop the lid on. Leave it to simmer for about 10-15 minutes, until the broccoli is tender. Don’t worry if the stock doesn’t cover all of the veg.

When the broccoli is tender, transfer the contents of the pot to your blender (you may need to do this in batches) and blend until smooth.

Return the soup to the pot, on low-medium heat and stir in the coconut milk.

Toast your nuts and seeds in a pan on medium heat until crisp.

When the soup is heated through, serve with a drizzle of tahini and the toasted nuts. I like to add another drizzle of cool coconut milk, too.

  6. Shona says:

    Hi there – I was wondering if the little green goddess soup would freeze well?

    • Indy Power says:

      Hi Shona. This soup freezes well as it is but it’s even better for freezing if you make it without the coconut milk, freeze it and then add the coconut milk in when you’re heating it up. It will work either way though! Hope you love it!x

  7. Marion says:

    Wow, this is like a warm hug in a bowl! Made some yesterday and just had the leftovers for lunch, tastes just as good heated up the next day.

  9. Niamh says:

    Hi, is 450g broccoli correct? Seems an awful lot. I made the soup with 200g broccoli…was delicious and the added tahini really lifted the flavours…. I’m trying you chocolate hazelnut butter next!

  10. Dee says:

    This soup is delish! Making it has become a Sunday ritual for the week ahead! Its comfort food with out the feeling of guilt! I added a courgette to it also as I didn’t have enough broccoli and it worked a treat! People in my office where very intrigued and jealous ????!

    Only 45g of kale and spinach? Why so little?

  14. Learning to avoid yeast at all costs! says:

    This soup looks lovely, however, I am suffering from a severe case of Candida, I’ve never done a yeast free diet before, so my question is what is the alternative to stock in this soup?

    • Indy Power says:

      There is no yeast in homemade stock so if you can then try making your own and using that. You should also be able to buy yeast free stock but I’m not sure where you are based, hope you love it!x
