GOOP for 2

This was my first experiment with incorporating my daily serving of greens into something other than 12oz of steamed veggies. My man liked his version, but said he liked the one I ate better (hes just being sweet...)

GOOP Broccoli and Arugula Detox Soup
TIME: 25 minutes


    1 tablespoon olive oil 1 clove garlic, thinly sliced 1/2 yellow onion, roughly diced 1 head broccoli, cut into small florets (about 2/3 pound) 2 1/2 cups water 1/4 teaspoon each coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper 3/4 cup arugula (watercress would be good, too) 1/2 lemon
For Him:
1/2c. Shredded Cheese
Dollop of sour cream or greek yogurt
Tapatio to taste


Heat the olive oil in a medium nonstick saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and onion and saute for just a minute or until fragrant.  Add the broccoli and cook for four minutes or until bright green.  Add the water, S&P bring to a boil, lower the heat and cover. Cook for eight minutes or until the broccoli is just tender. Pour the soup into a blender and puree with the arugula until quite smooth. Caution: when blending hot liquids; start slowly and work in batches, steam could blow the lid off!  Serve the soup with a bit of fresh lemon - add the cheese, sour cream and Tapatio to your man's bowl.
