Serves 6


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup white onion, diced
  • 2 heads broccoli
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 can (15-oz) northern beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • ¼ cup pine nuts*

**Blood type B (secretor and non-secretor) swap for chopped almonds or walnuts


  1. Heat 2 teaspoons olive oil in a large stockpot over medium heat, and sauté onion, 5 to 6 minutes.
  2. Trim woody stems off broccoli and discard. Rough chop broccoli. 
  3. Add broccoli to the onions along with garlic, beans, stock, and thyme. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 15 minutes, until vegetables are tender and easily pierced with a fork but not falling apart.
  4. Puree soup using an immersion blender, or in batches using a stand blender. Soup should be thick and creamy, but easily run off a spoon. Add water or additional stock if you prefer a thinner consistency. Season with sea salt, to taste.
  5. Heat remaining 1 teaspoon olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Toast pine nuts for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown.
  6. Serve soup hot, topped with toasted pine nuts.*
