A delectable fusion of healthy vegetables, this green soup is great to serve on St. Patrick’s Day (and also ideal for detoxing the next day!). Avocado, broccoli, and arugula not only lend the soup its rich emerald shade, but ensure that every sip is brimming with nutritional benefits too.
1/2 Haas avocado
8-10 decent-sized broccoli clusters (stems kept at least 1 in. long)
1/3 onion of choice
2 handfuls arugula
1 tbsp. olive oil
Salt (about 1 tsp.) or to taste
1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
Red pepper flakes (about 1/4 tsp.) or to taste
Drizzle of honey or agave
Juice from half a lemon
1 in. minced ginger root
1 c. water
Lightly steam the broccoli. Remove from heat when bright green. Saute onions in olive oil until just soft. Place cooked broccoli and onions and all the other ingredients in a blender, food processor, or use hand immersion blender. Add 1/2 c. water and blend. Keep adding more water until you reach desired consistency. Add any additional salt to taste. Enjoy hot or cold!
