INGREDIENTS TO MAKE BROCCOLI SOUP
- Olive oil, buy olive oil that comes in glass bottles or dark packaging. Check the labels and check that it only contains olive oil and is not a mixture of vegetable oils.
- Onion, you can substitute with shallots. Use the onion at home, yellow, white, red, etc.
- Garlic. Garlic is full of superpowers, and I love putting it on everything. Did you know that garlic has components that act as a natural antibiotic?
- Salt. Use kosher salt or sea salt.
- Broccoli. Use fresh broccoli; let the green be impressive and bright. Don’t buy broccoli that is yellow or old.
- Water or vegetable broth .
- Greens: spinach, kale, baby spinach, or a mixture of chard, spinach, kale, etc. This soup is perfect when the green leaves in the fridge are already a little wilted.
- Cilantro, leaves, and stems.
- Navy beans. Navy beans, canned or home-cooked.
- Dill, fresh or dried.
- Lemon juice for serving because everything tastes better with a bit of lemon juice at the end.

Transfer the soup to an airtight container. Glass containers with tight-fitting lids work well.
Label the container with the date and type of soup, and store it in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
Here are a few tips to keep in mind when storing soup:
Avoid storing soup in metal containers, as the acidity in the soup can react with the metal and cause the soup to taste metallic.
Do not leave soup at room temperature for more than 2 hours, as bacteria can grow rapidly.
If you are storing soup in the freezer, leave some headspace in the container to allow for expansion as the soup freezes. Adjust seasoning when reheating.
