Hormone Supporting Benefits:

Broccoli: Rich in fibre and phytoestrogens, which can help balance estrogen levels and support healthy hormone function.


Turmeric: Contains curcumin, a powerful anti-inflammatory compound that can help regulate hormones and improve overall health.


Cashews: A good source of healthy fats, magnesium, and zinc, all of which are important for hormone balance.


Coconut milk: Provides healthy fats and a creamy texture without dairy.


Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 medium onion, chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  • 4 cups vegetable broth

  • 2 cups broccoli florets

  • 3 large kale leaves, stems removed, roughly chopped

  • 2 large potatoes, diced

  • 200g Siggi’s plain yogurt or vegan sour cream

  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk (full-fat)

  • 1/4 cup raw cashews, soaked for at least 4 hours

  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast (optional)

  • Salt to taste


Instructions:


  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, and potato, and cook for 10 minutes.

  2. Stir in turmeric and black pepper. Cook for another minute.

  3. Add vegetable broth, broccoli florets, and kale. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes, or until the broccoli and potatoes are tender.

  4. While the soup simmers, drain and rinse the soaked cashews.

  5. Add coconut milk, cashews, and nutritional yeast (if using) to the pot. Blend with an immersion blender or transfer to a high-powered blender and blend until smooth and creamy.

  6. Once blended, stir in yogurt/sour cream.

  7. Season with salt to taste and serve hot with buttered sourdough.

  8. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days or in the freezer for up to 4 months.


Tips:

  • Use less vegetable broth or blend in a smaller amount for a thicker soup.

  • Add a squeeze of lemon juice for a touch of brightness.

  • You can top it with your favourite toppings, such as roasted chickpeas, chopped fresh herbs, or a drizzle of olive oil.
