Curried Cream of Broccoli Soup by Michelle Tam

Curried Cream of Broccoli Soup




Yield 6 servings

This soup is a perfect example of what I call garbage soup. I find whatever is about to rot in my fridge and turn it into a delicious, Whole30 supper! Trust me, it tastes way better than it sounds.



  1. Melt the ghee or fat of choice over medium heat in a large soup pot.
  2. Add the leeks, onions, and shallots and sauté until softened. When in doubt, toss in lots of alliums – your soup will taste that much better.
  3. Throw in the chopped broccoli and apple and add the chicken broth. Top off with some water if the vegetables aren’t submerged.
  4. Turn the heat up to high to bring the soup to a boil, and then lower to a simmer until the vegetables are soft (~20 minutes).
  5. Once the vegetables are soft, add the curry powder and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Remove the pot from the heat and use an immersion blender to blend the soup until smooth.  Place the pot back on medium heat and stir in cup of coconut milk until uniform and warmed through. Serve!
