Green Goodness Soup (Dairy Free)

A nourishing recipe for Green Goodness Soup that provides so much nutritionally, including fibre for gut health, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants from all of the green veggie goodness, plant based protein from cashews (which also make the soup really creamy but dairy free) and healthy fats from extra virgin olive oil, making this a nutritionally balanced, satisfying soup that will keep you full for hours. 

Green Goodness Soup Recipe

 Recipe Tips:

  • Our secret to velvety, silky-smooth and satisfying soup? A good quality extra virgin olive oil poured generously when cooking and a glistening drizzle just before serving. Using a generous amount of a good quality extra virgin olive oil not only adds authentic flavour but provides a serve of healthy fats and antioxidants. The healthy fats in extra virgin olive oil also make a dish more satisfying, helping to keep you fuller longer supporting blood sugar levels, reduced cravings supporting a healthy appetite. As a nutritionist, I cook and use extra virgin olive every day.
  • In this Green Goodness Soup recipe we’ve used Monini Australia Classico Extra Virgin Olive Oil that makes me dream of being in a cosy cottage in Italy enjoying a warming soup by a wood burning fire is.

 How to make a soup creamy without dairy?

  • There are several ways you can add creaminess to your soup without using dairy (typically cream is added to soup) such as:
    • Blend in coconut cream/ canned coconut milk
    • Use a generous amount of extra virgin olive oil when cooking the base ingredients and finish with a drizzle over top to serve.
    • Blend raw cashews into the soup for a creamy texture and extra nutritional goodness.
    • Stir through coconut yoghurt just before serving.
  • Instead of cashews you can also use raw macadamias. Cashews produce the smoothest, creamiest result.
  • You can also make this nut free by omitting cashews.  Add coconut yoghurt and stir through just before serving for creaminess.
