broccoli basil detox soup recipe by Anna, fertility dietitian



  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 8 cups broccoli, chopped
  • 4 cups cauliflower, chopped
  • 6 cups veggie or bone broth
  • 2 cups spinach, raw
  • 4 cups basil, fresh
  • 1 can garbanzo beans, rinsed & drained
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 tsp salt (or to taste depending on salt level of broth you use)
  • Optional, but highly recommended: crunchy chickpeas for serving.


  • In a large pot on the stovetop, heat olive oil and garlic over medium high heat.
  • Once the garlic starts to brown, add onion and continue to sauté until onions starts to become tender.
  • Add broccoli, cauliflower and broth to pot and reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer for ~5-10 minutes, or until broccoli and cauliflower become tender but not overcooked.
  • Stir in spinach, basil, garbanzo beans, avocado and salt.
  • Using an immersion blender or regular blend, mix until creamy.
  • Serve hot with crunchy chickpeas instead of croutons for an extra hit of crunch.
