This healthy broccoli soup recipe is full of flavour with added miso, garlic, ginger and basil. And it’s suitable for vegans too!



  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon of ginger, minced
  • 1 head of broccoli (approximately 350g), florets separated and stalk thinly sliced
  • 1.2 litres of water, boiled
  • 2 tablespoons of miso paste
  • 200 grams of frozen edamame beans
  • 25 grams of basil leaves
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Suggested toppings

  • A drizzle of coconut milk/yoghurt
  • Sesame seeds
  • A drizzle of sesame oil
  • Lime juice


  1. In a large saucepan or crock pot heat the oil over a medium heat. Add in the sliced onion and saute for 5 minutes until soft and translucent. Then add in the garlic and ginger and cook for a further 2 minutes. 
  2. Add the broccoli stalks (not the florets) and saute for 2-3 minutes until they begin to soften slightly.
  3. Pour in the boiled water and stir in the miso paste until it fully dissolves. Bring the water to a gentle simmer.
  4. To the saucepan add the broccoli florets and allow to cook for 3 minutes. Then add the edamame beans and cook for another 3 minutes. 
  5. Once the vegetables are tender, turn off the heat and stir in the basil leaves. 
  6. Using either a hand blender or a stand-alone blender, blend the soup until smooth. Add the juice of the lime then taste and season with salt and pepper as required. 
  7. Ladle the soup into bowls and serve with any desired toppings. 


  • If using unfrozen edamame beans, you may want to reduce the cooking time of the beans by 1-2 minutes.
