I wanted to post this for St Patrick’s day! It was the greenest recipe I could come up with! Then I ran out of time and the post wasn’t ready. Please say this happens to some of you? I feel I’m having a blogging crisis lately. I have post ideas but no time to try new recipes or I make recipes and forget to take a picture and sometimes I simply can’t find the time to sit at the computer and write anything.
Well I may have missed St Patrick’s day but here I am with a simple, healthy soup recipe. I have only recently tried broccoli soup, in part because many broccoli soup recipes have Stilton added, (I’ve not yet developed a taste for blue cheese). After a conversation about broccoli soup with a friend (you have those, right?) I decided to make my own and I’m glad I did!
This healthy, soup is ready in under 20 minutes and tastes great! I love how the 4 ingredients flavour the soup equally, no one ingredient dominates. I even think I could get my broccoli avoiding husband to eat this, I will try that theory and report back!
- 300 grams broccoli, cut into florets and stalk chopped
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- 600 ml vegetable stock
- salt and pepper
- Sauté the onion until soft.
- Add the garlic and broccoli, stir.
- Add the stock and simmer for 5-10 minutes until the broccoli is tender.
- Transfer into a blender and blend until smooth
- Season with salt and pepper and serve.
Using the broccoli stalks as well as the florets makes the broccoli go further, saving money.
Sprinkle with a few chile flakes before serving.
