Cleanse recipe: Puree of Broccoli Soup

This is one of those recipes that you can make when you’ve reached day 6 or 7 of your cleanse, only have a handful of veggies left in your fridge, and don’t know what to make.  There are only 4 ingredients in this soup, which is incredibly basic but still weirdly yummy.  It will fill you up without you having to eat lots of other stuff.  I usually eat it as a side dish while cleansing, alongside some other roasted veggies.

Serves 2



1/2 lb. broccoli, chopped

2 c. vegetable broth

Cayenne pepper, to taste (I usually add a pinch, taste, and then add more if I can’t feel the heat)

Sea salt, to taste



Put broccoli and broth in pot, and bring to boil.  Steam broccoli in vegetable broth until tender.  Remove broccoli from pot, but keep the broth.  Put the broccoli in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth, addding vegetable stock to reach desired consistency.  Return broccoli to pot.  Add cayenne pepper and sea salt to taste, and serve.
