In a medium-sized pot, warm the extra virgin olive oil over a medium heat. Add the red onion and garlic, cooking for approximately 5 minutes or until the onions are translucent. Include the cayenne pepper and stir for approximately one minute.
Add the homemade vegetable broth and sea salt to the pot and bring to the boil.
Once boiling, reduce the heat to a simmer and carefully include the broccoli florets to ensure you don't burn yourself. Cook for 5 - 10 minutes, or until the broccoli stalks are tender. Turn off the heat and stir through the lemon juice, spinach and nutritional yeast, stirring occasionally until the spinach has wilted.
Allow the soup cool for 5 - 10 minutes and pour the the soup into a high-powered blender and process until smooth. Include the avocado and process until well combined.
Distribute the soup amongst 4 bowls and serve with chia seeds and chickpeas. I hope you enjoy, bon appétit! :)
