The Green Soup

How this feeds the soul…

Fresh organic broccoli, spinach, peas, onions, garlic, and fresh herb make this not only delicious but a gift for the body.

I also added a green chili for heat and some cumin for earthiness.

Some nutritional yeast at the end is optional but does add super flavor.

Vegan deliciousness at its best

  1. As soon as I saw the title of your recipe I wondered what the “green” was. To my surprise there are three kinds of “green”. Then you’ve kicked it up a notch with some spices and other great flavors such as chilies. Fiesta Friday thanks you for sharing this creamy “green” soup.

    It certainly is green, which is a good thing. The mix of green veggies sounds wonderful. I’ve not used nutritional yeast before, but now you’ve got me curious.

  3. You keep giving me great ideas for Halloween! Green soup for Halloween sounds perfect, hehe… Maybe served in a cauldron 😀 Though to me, it actually sounds quite delicious. You can eat a lot of veggies in one sitting this way. I mentioned the bloody beet burgers to my husband and he made a face. For that, he’ll be getting green soup! I think that’s actually a treat!

    1. Ha bloody beet burgers and green soup in a cauldron for Halloween… would love to see that and be invited to your Halloween party 😁 I can have my husband talk to yours – he loved the beet burgers and I even managed to get my son to try some. Miracles 💕
