Ingredients for a delicious green soup

This recipe is super delicious and pretty easy to make, while you’ll only need a few (green) ingredients to make it:

  • Broccoli (frozen) – I used frozen broccoli, but fresh broccoli works great as well.
  • Green Peas (frozen) – same as with broccoli, use fresh or frozen green. peas (don’t use canned green peas unless other options aren’t available).
  • Green Beans (frozen) – green beans can be used fresh or frozen (avoid canned green beans unless other options aren’t available).
  • Butter – we use butter for blending all the ingredients together into a creamy soup (vegans are advised to use coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil or avocado).
  • Leeks – leeks gives our simple green soup that special soup-like flavor.
  • Chili Pepper – will add another level of flavor to this wonderful dish (you don’t have to use much).
  • White and Black Pepper – two distinct flavors that match perfectly in our creamy soup recipe.
  • Dill or Parsley – green spices like dill and parsley will add that special touch to make your soup just perfect!
  • Himalayan Salt – you can definitely use any type of salt you want, I happen to love my Himalayan salt so that’s what I used.
  • Water – we’ll use water to boil some of the ingredients prior to pureeing everything into a cream.
