Paleo Cream of Broccoli Soup

Missing that creamy goodness on the Paleo diet? You can still have it! This broccoli soup uses coconut milk and it is delicious. It doesn't taste coconut-y, just creamy. 

Gather your ingredients:

2-3 cups of chopped broccoli

1 cup diced carrots

1/2 an onion, diced

1 garlic clove, minced

1 can coconut milk

2 cups chicken broth or more as needed

coconut oil

sea salt as needed

In a large pot, sauté onions until tender in the coconut oil. Sprinkle with salt. Add in garlic. Add chopped broccoli, carrots, coconut milk and chicken broth. Cover. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Taste. Add salt as needed. Cook until broccoli is tender. Using an immersion blender, blend soup in the pot until desired consistency. We like to like some chunks of broccoli for texture. You won't believe how delicious this is!
