The secret of the healing soup is in browning the vegetables

An integral part of building the flavors of this soup is browning the vegetables.

First, give the onions time over medium heat to sweeten. You will know they are ready when they turn translucent.

Next, get a browning on the asparagus and broccoli. Finally, cook the garlic. Your nose is your friend in this step. Once the garlic is fragrant and golden, it’s time to deglaze with the bone broth.

Make sure to grab a wooden spoon to scrape off any browned spots that may be on the bottom of the pan.

Helpful tips to get started:

  1. Choose the right broth. Thick and rich bone broth is the base of this soup. Not only does it add flavor and texture, it also does wonders for your gut.
  2. Process the soup in batches. Overloading the food processor will only lead to a huge mess and uneven puree soup. Take your time and puree the soup in batches, processing each batch until completely smooth.
