Coconut Curry Broccoli Soup
Vegan & Gluten Free
This recipe came about because I bought a HUGE bag of broccoli from Costco – having high hopes that my husband and I could eat it all within one week or before it spoiled. We were both over broccoli after 2 days. So I froze the rest of it and figured I would figure out what to do with it.
And this soup recipe was born.
I LOVE curry anything and I always try different variations when I use curry ingredients. The weather is getting cooler so this recipe is perfect for snuggling up on the couch with a hot bowl of soup.
Plus, it’s packed with Vitamin C, Vitamin A and Vitamin B6. All of which will help keep your immune system strong while the cold and flu season is creeping up on us.
