Broccolini, Onion, and Potato Soup with Roasted Broccolini

Ingredients:

Soup

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1½ cups broccolini
  • 1 russet potato
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground ginger
  • A few sprinkles ground pepper
  • A pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 3 cups water
  • ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon cooking wine
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 green onion

Roasted Broccolini

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6-7 stalks broccolini
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • A few sprinkles ground pepper

Instructions: 

  1. Soup: Finely dice the onion into small cubes and chop the garlic into small pieces and put it in a saucepan with a tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil. Turn the heat on medium high (5-6) and sauté the onions and garlic for about 10 minutes, stirring all the time.
  2. Meanwhile, cut the broccolini into small pieces, and peel the potato and cut it in small pieces too. The smaller they are, the faster they’ll cook.
  3. After cooking the onions for 10 minutes, add the broccoli, potatoes, onion powder, garlic powder, dried thyme, oregano, basil, dill, ginger, pepper and red pepper flakes. Stir and cook for 2 minutes, then add the water, almond milk, wine, extra virgin olive oil and salt.
  4. Stir and cook for about 2 more minutes.
  5. Turn the heat down a notch (4-5) and put the lid on and let it simmer for about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, chop up the green onion into small pieces and a minute before you turn the heat off, add the green onions and stir.
  6. Put everything in a high speed blender and blend until it becomes a thick soup. Add a pinch of herbs (dried oregano, thyme, basil) as garnish and serve with roasted broccolini.
  7. Roasted Broccolini: Preheat oven to 350°F.
  8. Drizzle the olive oil over the broccolini in a small bowl, then add the onion powder, garlic powder, salt and ground pepper.
  9. Massage all the spices and oil thoroughly into the broccolini until everything is evenly coated.
  10. Bake in the oven for about 8-10 minutes (may take longer if your oven hasn’t been properly heated up yet).
