Ingredients

  • 1 T . coconut oil
  • 1/2 c . yellow onion , chopped
  • 3/4 c . celery , chopped
  • 2 carrots , chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic , minced
  • 1 t . sea salt , plus more to taste
  • 1/2 t . black pepper
  • 4 1/2 c . water or vegetable broth
  • 16 oz . broccoli florets (defrosted if using frozen, which I do)
  • lemon juice , to taste (I usually add a whole juicy lemon to the pot)

Instructions

  • Heat the oil in a large pot.
  • Add in the onion and saute for about five minutes.
  • Add in the celery and carrot and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add in the garlic and saute for 30-60 seconds.
  • Add in the water, broccoli, salt, and pepper, and bring it to a low boil.
  • Cover the pot and simmer the mix for 15 minutes until the broccoli is fork tender.
  • Using an immersion or high-speed blender, puree the mix until smooth.
  • Re-taste, and add more salt and pepper to your liking.
  • Ladle into bowls with a lemon wedge on the side (about one teaspoon per bowl is good).
