Serves: 6
  • 2 tbsp lard
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 1¼-lb white sweet potato (1 large), peeled and cubed
  • 2 cups chicken bone broth
  • 2 cups filtered water
  • ¾ lb broccoli (including stalks)
  • Generous pinch sea salt
  • 1 tbsp kelp flakes + more to garnish
  • Handful broccoli sprouts
  1. Heat the lard in a large saucepan and add the onion. Gently sweat the onion for 6-8 minutes until softened.
  2. Now add the sweet potato, broth and water, together with a small pinch of salt. Simmer for 8 mins until nearly tender.
  3. Add the broccoli, bring the contents of the pan back up to a simmer, and cook another 10-12 minutes until tender.
  4. Transfer the soup to a blender, along with 1 tbsp of kelp flakes and purée. You may need to do this in two or three batches. Taste the soup and stir in more salt if needed.
  5. Ladle into bowls. Garnish with a handful of broccoli sprouts and another sprinkle of kelp flakes.
  6. Serve.
