Vegans and non-vegans alike will enjoy this soup. It’s a cross between a broth-based and a cream-like soup, which in my opinion is the perfect consistency-not too watery, not too creamy. The canned coconut milk adds just the right amount of sweetness without altering the light, fresh taste of this soup.

The addition of herbs and spices not only render this soup delicious but also healthy. Turmeric has a peppery, warm and bitter flavour and is well known for its anti-inflammatory properties. Ginger has a pungent and spicy bite and aids in relieving gastro-intestinal issues, and garlic boasts bold flavour and as we know, meany medicinal properties.

Ingredients
    2 garlic cloves, halved or finely minced
  • about 4 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, cut into 2 inch cubes
  • 2 tbs. extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 3 cups cold water
  • 1/2 tsp. ground turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp. ginger puree (or dried ginger)
  • 1/4 cup canned coconut milk
Directions

Heat olive oil in a large pot on medium-low heat for 1-2 minutes.
Add the garlic and ginger and saute for about 2 minutes. Add the vegetable broth and water and bring to a boil (covered) on high heat.
Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium, add the broccoli, sweet potato, spices and coconut milk and cook for 20-25 minutes or until the vegetables are fork tender.

TIP: If a thicker and creamier consistency is desired, remove a few cups of the soup and puree with an immersion blender then return to the pot.

Serve with a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil and additional coconut milk. Garnish with lightly salted pepitas for added texture if desired.
