Broccoli-Spinach Soup, Green Food for St. Patrick's Day

Broccoli-Spinach Soup, Green Food for St. Patrick’s Day


It is St. Patrick’s Day tomorrow and I just had to post something green. I decided to make green soup, it’s quick and easy Broccoli-Spinach Soup – green food for St. Patrick’s Day.


  • Handful of onion flakes
  • 1tsp garlic powder
  • 2tsp broth powder
  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • 1 medium potato, cut into cubes
  • 1 sweet potato, cut into cubes
  • 2 small or 1 bigger broccoli head + stalk(s), cut into smaller pieces
  • 200g (7oz) spinach, chopped


  1. Boil a kettleful of water.
  2. Throw onion flakes, garlic powder, broth powder, carrot, potato, and sweet potato into a soup pot. Cover with water from kettle. Bring to boil.
  3. Simmer for five minutes, and then add broccoli pieces. Add more water if necessary – enough to keep the veggies covered.
  4. Simmer for another five minutes.
  5. Add chopped spinach and let simmer for the final five minutes.
  6. Let sit uncovered for 5-10 minutes to cool the soup down a bit. Puree with immerse blender.


Garnish with sunflower seeds, sesame seeds and parsley leaves. Nutritional yeast also goes very well with the soup. I had a few slices of fermented buckwheat bread with the soup.
