Paleo Cream of Broccoli Soup

Whale, I just got back from a lovely weekend trip to Banff with friends for a little birthday celebration and snowboarding. I loved seeing a big red looking full moon on the way back home. There’s something so exciting about full moons to me. If I had a tail, it would be wagging all night tonight while I stared out the window.

This week is a high potassium week because I tend to beat the shit out of myself during the winter. Between winter sports and yoga and soon-to-be rock climbing, I’ll need all the muscle recovery. Seeing as bananas don’t jive well with my skin, I stocked up on broccoli, potatoes, mushrooms and spinach to incorporate into my lunches this week.

Also, this soup is amazing because everything I make is amazing so you should make it.

broccoli soup


1 bunch of broccoli, loosely chopped

1 leek, chopped

1 cup yellow potatoes, cubed

1 cup canned full fat coconut milk

6 cups chicken or vegetable broth

1 tsp salt

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp nutritional yeast


Preheat oven to 350F. In a large roasting pan, combine broccoli, leek, olive oil, salt and garlic powder. Roast uncovered for 30 minutes, stirring often.

In a small sauce pot, bring water to a boil. Boil potatoes for 30 minutes, or until soft. Drain.

In a large stock pot, combine potatoes, broccoli mixture, coconut milk, broth and nutritional yeast. Simmer for 10 minutes. Blend soup entirely with either a food processor or immersion blender.

Serve hot, season with salt and pepper.
