Broccoli, Cannellini Bean and Coconut Soup
This thick and creamy soup makes an ideal lunch. The cannellini beans really boost the protein content and the coconut milk gives you some essential fats that will help to fill you up (you won't need any bread on the side). This serves 4 and is easily freezable.
