Broccoli-Spinach Soup with Avocado Toasts

No cream required: Tahini gives this soup its buttery flavor and silky texture -- and makes a serving of dark leafy greens unusually enticing. Avocado toasts round out the meal.

    Great recipe. Super simple, vibrant color and flavor. I added a 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg at the end. Next time I'll try a 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne to change it up.

    I've made this soup like ten times now and it's fantastic. Never bothered with the toast. It's soooo rich and creamy and virtually calorie free, not to mention packed with nutrients. Even my 2-year-old loves it. Thanks!

    This soup was delicious! I want to make it again and again! The color was so appealing and the aroma was wonderful! I didn't know that Tahini is simply Sesame Butter. What a lovely flavor to add to these vegetables! The Parmesan is a perfect touch!

    LOVED this soup! So warm & creamy on a cool day! I didn't have tahini, so I added half an avocado during the puree process. Delicious!

    Made this and it turned out exactly like the picture - a beautiful and delicious meal. Couldn't find tahini at the market so toasted sesame seeds and ground up in food processor with a little olive oil until it made paste. Found beautiful rustic bread at the market and the toast was a perfect accompaniment to the soup. Will make this again for simple weeknight dinners and for weekend lunch guests.
