Fry. On a medium-high heat in a large pot, add the oil and the onion. Once the onion is translucent, add the carrot, celery and potato and cook for a further 5 minutes.
Flavour. Stir in the garlic, cook for about another minute and then add the vegetable stock. Continue to cook until the potato is soft, about 10 minutes.
Green it up! Add the broccoli and cook for 5 more minutes until the broccoli is soft, then remove from heat.
Whuz. Using an immersion blender, blend the soup until completely pureed or to the consistency you enjoy.
Season. Stir in the lemon juice and season, to taste, with seat salt and black pepper.

You can also look at We Heart Local BC for updates each month as to what's in season.
Another great way to ensure you're using seasonal produce is to subscribe to a CSA Box with a local farm and structure your meals around the seasonal produce you've received that week!
If you can't buy a locally grown fruit or vegetable, it's better to buy such produce when it is in season in the country it's imported from. So if you're buying lemons from Mexico, it is good to know that their peak growing season typically lasts from March til August.
