How to Make Easy Vegan Super Greens Soup:

1. First, heat the oil and water in a medium-sized pot over medium-high heat. Going the no-oil route? No problem! Just use extra water.

2. Meanwhile, roughly chop the onion.

3. Next, add the onion to the hot oil/water and stir until the onion becomes translucent and the edges become lightly browned; about two minutes.

4. Then, add the broccoli, spinach, garlic powder, salt and pepper.  Stir until the broccoli is hot and steamy, about 3 minutes if your broccoli was fresh or 5 minutes if it was frozen.

5. Add the water and bring it to a boil.  Then, carefully ladle all of the pot’s contents into your blender…

…and blend until very smooth.

6. To make the croutons, pop your bread of choice in the toaster. I usually make about one slice per person.  Once toasted, lightly apply non-dairy butter or olive oil if you like, and then cut it into squares.

Such a simple, yet, delicious sight! It’s making my mouth water…. mmm…. toast….

I’ll then take half of the toast croutons and add them to each bowl or cup of soup.  The other half stays on the side, giving the option to add extra croutons to the soup or eat them by themselves!  You can’t lose either way.

That’s all there is to it. I hope you love this delicious soup as much as we do!

Top Tips for Making Easy Vegan Super Greens Soup:

  • Keep an eye on your onions while cooking them to make sure they don’t burn, as this would alter the flavor of the soup.
  • Feel free to use either fresh or frozen broccoli or spinach.
  • Be mindful while transferring the veggie mixture to the blender and while blending, as it will be very hot!
  • For gluten free croutons, use any gluten free bread of choice.

At first i thought it was green pea soup. 🙂 my son will soon have his wisdom teeth removed. I have been thinking about things he can eat, without chewing. One can’t. Live on jello, pudding, ice cream, and applesauce. He likes both vegetables, so this will be great!! Thank you Audrey!
