Creamy Broccoli Soup from Pinay In Texas Cooking Corner



  • 1 head of broccoli, chopped into florets
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1/2 small yello onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1" pc of fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 1/2 cup veggie stock or water
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil

  • 2 Tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 avocado, cubed into pieces
  • 1/4 cup arame, broken into pieces
  • 1 tsp dulse flakes or kelp granules

Steam broccoli until slightly tender, approximately 3 minutes. In the meantime, add celery, onion, garlic, ginger, lemon juice, oregano, salt and black pepper to high speed blender. Add the broccoli and 1/2 cup veggie stock or water. Blend until well combined. If soup seems too thick, adjust  consistency with more veggie stock or water. Add olive oil and adjust seasoning with salt and black pepper to taste. Soak dried arame in water for 5-10 minutes and then rinse. Transfer soup to serving bowls and top with pumpkin seeds, avocado, arame, dulse or kelp and cayenne. Serves four.
