  • 1 cup Florida broccoli, chopped
  • 1 cup fresh Florida spinach
  • 1/2 Florida avocado
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup low-fat milk
  • 1 1/4 cup low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 cup homemade croutons
  • 4 teaspoons Parmesan cheese, grated
  • Sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste


Place a medium-sized stockpot over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the preheated pan. Add onion and garlic to the pan and saute until translucent. Add broccoli, vegetable broth and milk to the pan. Reduce heat and bring to a simmer. Cook ingredients until the broccoli is just crisp-tender. Add broccoli mixture to a blender with a tight-fitting lid. Make sure not to fill the blender more than half full at a time. Add the avocado and spinach to the blender as well. Carefully pulse the ingredients until smooth and creamy. Taste soup and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Return soup to pot and heat back up to serving temperature. Garnish soup with croutons and Parmesan cheese.
