Nutty Broccoli Soup with a Spoon and Tablecloth


  • 1 large head broccoli
  • 1 teaspoon ghee or olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped leeks or onions
  • 2 tsp Braggs Liquid Aminos or tamari
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp marjoram
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp dill
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • ½ cup almonds, finely chopped, or substitute 2 tablespoons almond butter for richer taste
  • 4 cups vegetable stock
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley

You will need a hand blender or a food processor for this recipe.


  1. Cut the broccoli head into florets. Peel and chop the stalk.
  2. Heat the oil in a soup pot. Add the leeks, aminos, herbs, and spices.
  3. Sauté for 2-3 mins, then add the broccoli and the finely chopped almonds. If you are using almond butter, this will be added later.
  4. Sauté the almonds and broccoli with the herbs and spices for several minutes; stir frequently.
  5. Add the stock and bring to a boil – if you’re using almond butter, add it now, then reduce the heat.
  6. Simmer the soup until the broccoli is almost soft. Be careful not to overcook the broccoli.
  7. Let the soup cool for about 10 mins, then purée with a hand blender or food processor.
  8. Reheat; then add the lemon juice. Ladle into bowls and garnish with chopped parsley.
