Friends on Friday - Get your green on!

Mish is the founder and CEO of mishfit mothers and says this recipe is “easy as” as long as you remember to secure the Vitamix lid! And it is.

I met Mish after my first baby, he was 10 weeks old and I needed to move and feel my body again so I joined mishfit; a specialised personal training program designed for pregnant and post-natal women, she was great, it was great, she educates women on how to exercise safely and its in a place where your babies and children are welcome. 

Broccoli Soup Recipe

Broccoli is a real superfood; it contains substantial amounts of nutrients that are extremely good for your health including vitamins A, C, folic acid, fiber and calcium. It also has amazing properties that detoxify oestrogen overload in the liver! To get the full benefits of your broccoli its best to buy ORGANIC, as it’s one of the most sprayed conventionally grown veggies.

4 generous heads of broccoli
1 x onion
2-3 garlic cloves
1 Lt. vegetable stock
1/2 to 3/4 cup of pine nuts
Olive oil

Soak roughly cut up broccoli in cold water and salt to clean and to remove bugs, dirt and chemical. Include stalks too but peel first so that it easily cooks and breaks down.
Heat pan, sauté onion and garlic in a little oil. Add chopped broccoli and good quality stock cover with lid and cook till tender.

Pop in blender with 1/2 to 3/4 cup of pine nuts and blend. Secure lid of blender tightly! And buzz away.

Return to heat if it has cooled down.
Serve with a delicious piece of crusty sourdough lavished with butter.
