You’ll love the ease and simplicity of this green plant-powered soup!

I bet you have never made a soup in under 5 minutes? With the Vibe Blender System, you can make the healthiest soups on the planet without slaving over a pot on the stove. Don’t bother with chopping either – save your time and throw the ingredients into the jug virtually whole. The Vibe high-speed blades ensure that even the most fibrous parts of raw vegetables are broken down to a smooth, silky soupy puree.

Making soup in the Vibe is an excellent way to get instant nourishment and gut-loving fibre from fresh vegetables. You avoid overheating and retain all the vital enzymatic goodness. Get the most out of your greens with this jug-to-bowl broccoli and kale soup recipe  – it’s rich, creamy (without cream), satisfying and insanely healthy!

The ‘Soup’ setting on the Vibe Blender System allows you to blend and heat soup up to 90°C / 194°F. The ingredients heat up with longer blending, and the soup will start to taste just like the creamy, stove-top soup you are familiar with. We stopped at 60°C / 140°F and enjoyed a steaming, warm bowl of creamy soup loaded with fibre and vitamins.

For ‘raw’ but warm, no-enzyme-lost broccoli and kale soup, switch it off before it reaches 47°C / 116°F . You can achieve dreamy creaminess (just like a smoothie) in less than a minute without heating the soup at all - so you can even enjoy it cold. Depending on the bitterness of your fresh greens the soup may taste sharp and astringent however - just add a dash more maple syrup to round off the flavours.  

The creaminess of the soup is perfectly contrasted with a bit of crunch. We sprinkled a delicious nutty dukkha on top but below we have listed a host of other tasty options. For extra cream, and a richer soup, definitely add homemade yogurt – we have links to both plant-based and dairy below!

Note: Always use the Vibe Blender stainless steel jug when blending hot food.
