3-Ingredient Soup To Get Your Veggies

Soup is one of my favorite – and one of the easiest – ways to get in a ton of veggies easily. Soup is simple and can be fast to throw together, plus you can make a big batch of it so you have an instant meal or snack ready to go when you’re hungry.

My trick for making 3-ingredient soup is to keep it simple (obviously) – all you need is:

  1. 1 lb of vegetables (I love carrots, sweet potatoes, or broccoli for this)
  2. 1 onion
  3. 1 quart of bone broth

That’s all you need to get started! But if you want to dress it up a little, other yummy additions include:

  • Salt
  • Herbs like rosemary, oregano, or thyme
  • Spices like yellow curry powder, cinnamon, or paprika
  • More veggies (like celery, which is a common ingredient in most soups)
  • Coconut Milk
  • Garlic

Here’s how to put your own soup together:

  1. Heat 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil or ghee over medium heat in a medium to large saucepan
  2. Rinse, scrub, and chop your veggies and your onion.
  3. When the oil is hot, add the veggies and the onion to the oil and cook until they are lightly browned and softened, about 7-10 minutes. 
  4. At this point, you’ll also add any of your herbs, spices, or garlic you’d like to use.
  5. When the veggies are browned, add your bone broth and bring it up to a boil. Boil the soup for 3-5 minutes, or until the veggies are completely tender. 
  6. At this point you can enjoy you soup as-is, or transfer it to a blender to blend into a puree (which is my preferred method.)
  7. Add salt to taste, serve hot, and enjoy!

Here’s my recipe for Curried Cream of Broccoli Soup:

1 medium yellow onion
1 lb broccoli florets
3 tbsp ghee, for cooking
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 ½ Tbsp curry powder
1 quart chicken bone broth
¾ cup full-fat coconut milk
Salt and pepper to taste

  1. Heat the ghee in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Add the onion and sauce until tender, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the curry powder and cook to release the oils, stirring occasionally, about 2-3 minutes. 
  4. Add the garlic, broth, and broccoli and cook uncovered* until the broccoli is tender.
  5. Transfer the mixture to a blender, add the coconut milk and salt and blend until smooth. Add water if desired, for a thinner texture. Serve hot and enjoy!
