Don’t you just love those recipes you come across one day that make you think to yourself, “Why didn’t I think of that???” Well, this is one of those. It’s simply genius, yet so easy to make I’ve found myself making it over and over and over again!
Unfortunately I can’t take credit for this Healthy 3 Ingredient Broccoli Soup recipe at all…I first discovered it while watching one of Gordon Ramsay’s shows on the Food Network and while I’m not necessarily a huge fan of him, I am a huge fan of his recipes. I’ve never made anything of his that I didn’t absolutely love, and this 3 Ingredient Broccoli Soup is absolutely no exception.
There’s definitely something to be said about simplicity and if you’ve been around here for any length of time you know I love to keep it simple. Sometimes out of necessity, because I have two little ones, a busy working husband, and a food blog to run, but also because sometimes the simplest and freshest foods just taste the best. And keeping it simple often means you’re making a healthy choice – and we all know how important that is, don’t we?

Healthy 3-Ingredient Broccoli Soup
- 2-3 large heads of broccoli washed and cut into chunks
- a generous pinch of sea salt up to 2 teaspoons
- grated cheddar cheese optional
- freshly cracked black pepper
- goat cheese creme fraiche, sour cream, or coconut cream
- chopped walnuts
- olive oil for drizzling
- Boil a large pot of water and add the sea salt to the water.
- Add the broccoli chunks into the water for about 3 minutes, just enough time for them to become slightly soft.
- Remove the broccoli from the water with a slotted spoon and add it to your blender. Keep the broccoli water.
- Add enough of the broccoli water to the blender to fill it up to about the half-way mark, or slightly less.
- Blend on high speed until smooth, adding more water to loosen the soup if necessary.
- Serve with whatever toppings you wish, a drizzle of olive oil, chopped walnuts and goat cheese, cheddar cheese, etc.
