Creamy Broccoli Soup Recipe

This creamy broccoli soup is too delicious and full of healthy fats from coconuts. Coconut oil is one of the few foods that can be classified as a “superfood.” Its benefits include weight loss, better brain function, skin health and many more.

Total Time: 30 minutes
Serves: 2

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium green onions, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil

  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • 1 large head fresh broccoli, chopped
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
