  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 small onion , diced
  • 1 1/2 zucchini , cut into pieces
  • 3 cups celery , chopped
  • 1 apple , diced
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 4 cups bone broth (use vegetable stock to make it vegetarian)
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 4 cups chopped & packed greens (I used dandelion greens + kale)
Optional toppings
  • roasted cauliflower or other vegetables
  • cooked quinoa
  • cooked brown rice
  • pumpkin seeds
  • sunflower seeds
  • chopped avocado
  • roasted chickpeas
  • drizzle of more coconut milk
  1. Add coconut oil to a soup pot and heat over medium heat for 30 seconds. Add onion and let cook until translucent, about 3 minutes.

  2. Add zucchini, apple, celery and spices and saute, stirring frequently, for 2 minutes.

  3. Add broth. Bring the vegetables and broth to a boil and then lower to a simmer, stirring occasionally, until the zucchini is very tender—about 10 minutes.

  4. Add coconut milk and greens and stir. Keep simmering and stirring until the greens have wilted and are bright green. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.

  5. Once cool enough, blend using an immersion blender or a high-speed blender (see notes).

  6. Serve warm with optional toppings.

Recipe Notes

Do NOT attempt to blend hot liquid as it can blow the top off.
