Broccoli & Asparagus Soup with Coconut Milk

Print

When I was recovering from cancer, I needed to slowly reintroduce the foods that I had been eating before my diagnosis. Even though they were healthy foods, I had to be extremely careful because of what my body went through during chemo and radiation. I chose to start with simple things like smoothies and soups. I make this soup about once a week. I love the flavor and creaminess and the fact that it’s nutrient-dense and healing for me.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

This recipe utilizes an essential ingredient when cooking creamy vegan dishes: nutritional yeast. In just two tablespoons, nutritional yeast has 130% the daily value of vitamin B12, a nutrient that is commonly deficient in a vegan diet. Broccoli contains two major cancer-fighting phytonutrients: sulforaphane, which is thought to halt the proliferation of cancer stem cells and glutathione, one of our body’s most potent antioxidants.
