This tasty green soup is a great way to warm up on a cold winter day. Not only is it full of vegetable goodness, it is also rich in Calcium! Leafy greens such as Kale, Collard Greens, Turnip Greens, and Bok Choy are some of the best sources of dairy-free calcium in the plant world. These plants are also rich in Magnesium and Vitamin K as well, which are needed for proper calcium absorption. You will need a large pot and a blender to prepare this soup. We recommend the Cleanblend Smoothie Blender, which has a powerful 1800w motor that can keep up with all of your blending needs.

1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil or Olive Oil
1 medium Onion, chopped
3-4 cloves Garlic, minced
2 small Zucchini, chopped
1 head Broccoli, chopped
2 cups Leafy Greens*, chopped (stems removed if desired) *Choose calcium-rich greens like Kale and Collard Greens
32 ounces Vegetable Broth
Salt and Pepper to taste
In a large soup pot, heat the oil and saute onions over medium heat until they soften. Add the garlic and cook a few minutes longer. Increasing heat to medium high, start adding the chopped zucchini and broccoli, alternating each addition with some of the vegetable broth. Continue cooking until the vegetables are soft. Add the remaining broth together with the leafy greens. Once the greens have wilted down, turn off the heat and carefully ladle the hot soup to your blender. You may need to do in batches if your blender is small or lower powered. The soup will be very hot, so be careful. Puree until smooth. If mixture is too thick for your taste or is hard to blend, you can add a bit more broth or water. Once blended, return soup to the pot, place over low heat, season with salt and pepper to taste, and serve.
