Here's a delicious and nutritious soup recipe featuring broccoli, garlic, and MulZi-collagen. Collagen is often used to promote skin health, and it can be added to soups for an extra boost. This recipe serves 4.
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 large head of broccoli, chopped into florets (about 4 cups)
- 4 cups vegetable broth (or chicken broth if preferred)
- 1 scoop of MulZi-Collagen
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Optional garnishes: grated Parmesan cheese, chopped fresh herbs (such as parsley or chives), and a drizzle of olive oil
1- Heat the olive oil in a large soup pot or Dutch oven over medium heat.
2- Add the chopped onion and minced garlic to the pot. Sauté for about 3-4 minutes, or until the onions become translucent and fragrant.
3- Add the chopped broccoli florets to the pot and sauté for another 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
4- Pour in the vegetable broth, and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and let it simmer for about 15-20 minutes or until the broccoli is tender.
5- Once the broccoli is tender, use an immersion blender or a regular blender to puree the soup until smooth. Be cautious when blending hot liquids; if using a regular blender, allow it to cool slightly before blending and do it in batches if needed.
6- Return the pureed soup to the pot, and stir in the MulZi-collagen powder until it's fully dissolved.
7- Season the soup with salt and pepper to taste. Start with a pinch of salt and adjust to your preference.
8- Let the soup simmer for an additional 5 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
9- Serve the soup hot, garnished with grated Parmesan cheese, chopped fresh herbs, and a drizzle of olive oil if desired.
