When soups are cooking on the stove, it’s a sure sign that you are loved.

Many people think it takes a lot of work to make a soup, but it’s really not much different than preparing an entrée that contains meat and vegetables.

Broccoli is known for its detoxifying benefits. When eaten raw, it can interfere with thyroid function. However, eating broccoli soup is an excellent way to reap the detoxification effects and still preserve your thyroid.

The secret to this soup is the roasting of the broccoli before making the soup.

Broccoli Soup


  • Stems from 1 pound broccoli (use the florets for salads)
  • 2 bunches green onions, diced
  • 4 carrots, sliced
  • 4 ribs celery, sliced
  • 3 cups beef stock*
  • Salt and pepper to taste

* Beef stock can be easily made yourself. The next time you make a beef roast, save the liquid and freeze it. This way you’ll have ready made beef stock.

Lay broccoli stems in a baking pan. Add 3 cups beef stock. Broil the broccoli stems in the beef stock until done. Then blend the broccoli and the beef stock in a blender until liquefied. Pour into a 2-quart soup pot. Then add the carrots, celery and green onions. Fill the pot with water. Salt and pepper to taste. Then simmer on low, covered for 40 minutes.
