• Difficulty Easy

Struggling to get green veggies into your family’s diet?  

This delicious winter warming soup is a quick, easy, healthy (and sneaky!) way of getting in a whole feast of super greens and they’ll love it!  I often throw a bit of shaved parmasen over the top for an extra tasty treat.

It’s also packed with folate and essential nutrients for all those Mum’s to be.

Ingredients (Serves 4)

  • 1 broccoli, cut into florets
  • 1 zucchini, diced into 1cm cubes
  • 1 small bunch green asparagus, chopped into 2cm pieces

  • 2 stalks celery, sliced
  • 500ml vegetable stock

  • Wow I need this in my life! Sounds like the perfect way to get over a cold quick or something! So much goodness


  • There’s a whole lot of green in there and it sounds delicious.


  • Love my vegetables and this is a great way to get more in while enjoying a delicious soup.


  • This is a soup that I would love. It might be abit harder convincing my kids though. Its worth a try!

    • I think my kids would give it a go, but they wouldn’t be pleased with the chopped sweet basil on top ;)


  • Beautiful !


  • What a fantastic way to get a lot of green goodness into my family’s diet!


  • Looks like a full of goodness soup. Not sure if my kids will like it.


  • Thanks for sharing your recipe – this soup sounds really wonderful for me, however I think that if I put all these veg through the Nutribullet without any extra liquid – I could serve this as the next salad for my husband who has difficulty swallowing food and must limit his liquid intake.


  • Wow! That is definitely a lot of greens!!!
    I may have to leave out some of the bay leaves though as I find it to be quite an overpowering flavour.
    Thank you so much for sharing.


  • Such a quick and easy recipe full of goodness. Love it


  • what a delicious soup. I love my greens and my kids love broccoli so I could just tell them it’s broccoli soup!


  • Wow, that’s a great way to include a lot of greens. I’m going to make chow mein tonight and include broccoli, beans, green capsicum and some spinach for more greens. I do love this soup option and would be prepared to try it. I’ve taken a liking to a smoothie with some added greens, so could imagine this soup would work for me too.


  • What a beautiful tongue tickling greens !!


  • Just made this today – thanks for sharing.


  • This looks so appetizing.
