Broccoli Cabbage Soup

Broccoli and cabbage soupThis is my favourite soup for the following reasons:

  1. It is so simple to make, and is ready in about 20 minutes
  2. It only contains nutrient-packed, whole food ingredients that I always seem to have in my fridge
  3. Somehow it tastes SO good! When you read the ingredients, it might not scream “YUM” to you… but it really is just so delicious!

  5. Lower the heat to a simmer, cover and cook for 8 minutes
  6. Take the saucepan off of the element and let it cool for a few minutes

  8. Top soup with hemp seeds and squeeze in some lemon

I like to have this soup with dinner, or I will load up some mason jars and store them in the fridge as an easy thing to grab for lunch. Enjoy! FullSizeRender-6
