S, S, S: Salmon, Soup, and Salad
Word's Best Broccoli Soup: I changed this one up a bit... I used a recipe for "The World's Best Broccoli" to make the base. Place broccoli florets, chopped garlic and some olive oil on a cookie sheet and roast for 15 minutes at 425, or until the tips of the broccoli turn slightly brown. While that's cooking saute chopped onions and another chopped garlic clove in a soup pot with some oil. Add the broccoli to the soup pot and add 1-2 cups of stock made from chicken or beef. Let simmer for about 10 minutes. Then blend the mixture until smooth and add back into the soup pot and allow to simmer on low until you eat. Now if you want this soup to really kick ass add some bacon to the onion and garlic saute, or you could even add a ham hock and pieces of ham to make this soup a main dish with meat.
Salad: greens + avocado + onions and an olive oil-coconut milk dressing.
