Broccoli-Spinach Soup, Green Food for St. Patrick's Day

Saint Patrick’s Day, or the Feast of Saint Patrick, is a cultural and religious celebration held on 17 March, the traditional death date of Saint Patrick (c. AD 385–461), the foremost patron saint of Ireland. It is a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador, and the British Overseas Territory of Montserrat. It is also widely celebrated by the Irish diaspora around the world, especially in Great Britain, Canada, the United States, Argentina, Australia and New Zealand.
On St Patrick’s Day it is customary to wear shamrocks and/or green clothing or accessories. St Patrick is said to have used the shamrock, a three-leaved plant, to explain the Holy Trinity to the pagan Irish. (1)

Needless to say, it is also extremely popular to prepare green food. My small contribution is Broccoli-Spinach Puree Soup with parsley leaves. It is a quick and easy soup recipe using onion flakes and garlic powder, and therefore saving a lot of time on pealing and chopping.

This broccoli-spinach soup is plant-based, oil-free and gluten-free. So, please leave me a comment bellow if you have any questions about my green soup.
