There is a trend called happy food. So it’s about food that lifts the mood and creates a good mood. And, it doesn’t have to be the chickpeas are used. Rather, it is about the color of the food being prepared. And the color green represents energy. Broccoli basil soup gives you energy and vitamins that keep you fit – physically and mentally.
Broccoli and basil soup doesn’t drain your energy either, because it’s so quick to prepare. So you don’t have to exert yourself physically. Hot salt water and a hand blender do most of the work. You can also replace the latter with a food processor. Afterwards, clothes and the kitchen floor remain reliably clean. We love broccoli and have tons of recipes using the healthy vegetable.

Green fitness maker: broccoli and basil soup
For greater wellness: broccoli and basil soup
Heat the vegetable broth. Wash the broccoli, remove the damaged areas and cut off the bottom end of the stem. Break into small florets and split the stem. Wash the basil, shake dry and set aside a few leaves for garnish. Roughly chop the rest of the leaves. Peel and finely chop the shallots and garlic.
In a saucepan, sauté shallots and garlic in oil until translucent. They should not turn brown. Add the broccoli and stir briefly. Then pour in the hot vegetable stock and add the basil. Cook broccoli until tender. This takes about 15 minutes. Puree the mixture, add the crème fraîche and serve the soup with lemon juice, salt and pepper. Pour into pretty plates or bowls, garnish with basil leaves and serve. Then enjoy with a spoon!
