Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil divided + extra for serving, if desired
  • 1 medium leek  trimmed, cleaned and cut into very thin slices
  • 1-2 tablespoons fresh ginger peeled and chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic smashed
  • 5 carrots chopped
  • Kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste
  • 14 ounce can light coconut milk
  • 15 ounce can cannellini beans rinsed and drained
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 small zucchini chopped
  • 3 cups broccoli florets roughly chopped
  • 3 cups broccoli florets and tender stems about 1 head, roughly chopped
  • 2 slices crusty bread

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F and wrap a large baking sheet with aluminum foil; set aside.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a large heavy pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the leeks, ginger, and garlic; saute, stirring occasionally. Cook until the leeks are tender; about 2 minutes. Stir in the carrots and season salt and pepper to taste. Then stir in the coconut milk, beans, and water; bring to a boil over high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the carrots are very tender, 20 minutes.
  • While the soup is cooking, place the zucchini, broccoli, and bread on the prepared baking sheet and toss with the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Roast in the oven, until the vegetables are tender and have started to brown and the bread is toasted; about 15 minutes.
  • When the carrots are tender, puree the soup with an immersion blender (or transfer to a regular blender in batches and puree); taste and season with salt and pepper, if needed.
  • To serve, ladle the soup into bowls and drizzle with olive oil (if desired); top with the roasted vegetables and croutons.
