Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 clove of garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 yellow or Spanish onion, roughly diced
  • 1 head broccoli, cut into small florets, about 2/3 pound
  • 2 1/2 cups water or vegetable stock
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 cup arugula leaves, packed
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, heat oil over medium.
  2. Add onion and cook until soft and translucent.
  3. Add garlic and cook for one minute.
  4. Add broccoli and cook for 4 minutes until it is bright green.
  5. Add water (or vegetable stock), salt, pepper, and thyme.
  6. Bring to boil, then cover and lower heat. Cook until broccoli is tender, around 8 minutes.
  7. Carefully transfer the soup into blender (or better yet, use an immersion blender right in the pan) and add arugula, blending until smooth. NOTE: Be careful if you are using a blender, start slowly, place the lid on top of the blender but don’t press the lid down and work in batches if necessary.
  8. Add the lemon juice and serve.
