Broccoli , Coconut & Lime Soup

I make broccoli soup incredibly often. In several ways. This is one of my favorite recipes. Easy to make, super satiating, full of fibers and all incredibly healthy properties of the so-called “cruciferous” foods (cauliflower, broccoli, kale, green cabbage, red cabbage, Brussels sprouts) – especially for wheelchair users. Onion and garlic are immune boosting ingredients. Coconut milk is rich in essential fats which helps release excess stored fat, and nourishes skin and hair.
