Broccoli Spinach Soup

Hot soups keep you warm in this winter season, so I keep experimenting on different combinations of soups. Recently I tried broccoli and spinach soup. It was so tasty that I made it 3 times in 2 weeks. It was so filling that we didn't need to eat anything with the soup. This soup has become one of my favorite soups.
Broccoli Spinach Soup
2 cup finely cut Broccoli florets
1 Red / Yellow finely cut Onion
2 cup finely chopped Spinach
1/4 cup Coconut Milk
Water as required
Salt & pepper according to taste
1 tsp Oil
  1. Heat the oil in the pan and saute the onion in the oil till it is softened. 
  2. Add broccoli and spinach Into it and saute it for 3 minutes. 
  3. Add one cup of water and let it boil for 3-4 minutes or till broccoli is softened. Remove the pan from the heat and let it cool down. 
  4. Put the mixture in the blender and blend it till it gets smooth consistency and a little thin paste. It's good if you leave some crunchy pieces unblended.
  5. Pour the blended mixture into the cooking pot and add water if needed. Boil it for 10 minutes at least. 
  6. Add coconut milk into it. Also add salt and black pepper according to taste. Boil it for another 5 minutes. 
  7. Serve it hot.
This soup was so yummy that I am sure that this can be part of the party menu plan and guests will ask for more.
