Creamy Broccoli Soup

This recipe is so easy, and the ingredients are so minimal yet so rich. (Did I use "so" too many times? I think so.) Anyway, this is great for a quick healthy fix especially when on a budget!


Ingredients:
  • 2 cups broccoli florets, (I used frozen)
  • 2 cups cooked black eyed peas, (I used frozen for these, too)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 cups almond milk or help milk
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • Cilantro to garnish
Serves 4.


Directions:
  1. Boil broccoli and black eyed peas in milk until broccoli is soft.
  2. Add in garlic and onion. Stir well.
  3. Pour mixture into a blender. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  4. Add in extra virgin olive oil. Garnish with black pepper and cilantro. SOOOOO rich and fulfilling ;)

  1. I would never think to mix black-eyed peas and broccoli, but that is genius.
