Broccoli and Cannellini beans soup

A vegan heartwarming soup rich in flavor and packed with plant-based protein. I would say it is perfect for vegenuary (and if you are not a broccoli fan).

Broccoli and Cannellini beans soup

  • Difficulty: super easy
  • Print


1/2 leek, finely sliced
400g tinned cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
600g broccoli (a big one or two small)
500ml veg stock
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp miso paste
Salt and pepper to season
Chilly flakes (optional)


  1. Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in a large pan, add the leek and miso paste. Gently stir fry with a ladle of water.
  2. Chop the broccoli florets and stem (don’t waste it) and add it to the pan with the beans.
  3. Add the stock and mix well. Boil for around 20-30 minutes or until the vegetable is soft.
  4. Once ready, blend with a hand blender until creamy.
  5. I served mine with the remaining olive oil, olive sourdough bread and some roasted broccoli florets and beans.
  6. For the roasted broccoli and beans, simply preheat the oven to 180°C. Add the broccoli florets and beans to a baking tray, season and bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
