Green Goddess Soup

You have to admit that a name like that for a soup makes a person a little curious. Turns out this soup, like many other puréed soups, isn't the most eye catching. However, it tastes really good and it's way good for you.

1 t olive oil
1/2 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
1 large head of broccoli, cut into medium florets
1 cup of arugula
2 1/2 cups vegetable broth
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk
juice of half a lemon
salt and pepper to taste

Heat the oil in soup pot, add the onion and garlic and cook until soft--about 4 minutes. Add the broccoli and arugula. Stir and cook around 5 minutes. Pour in the broth and bring the soup to a  boil, then turn down and cover until the broccoli is tender--10-15 minutes. Transfer to a blender or use a hand held immersion blender right in the pot (that's what I do). Blend on high speed for 1 1/2 minutes or however long it takes to get the big lumps out. Add the coconut milk and lemon juice and blend a bit more. Season with salt and pepper--add more lemon juice if desired or coconut milk.
