Broccoli Soup

Broccoli soup madebyjayne.com

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!

Broccoli Soup

ingredients

  • 300 grams broccoli, cut into florets and stalk chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 600 ml vegetable stock
  • salt and pepper

method

  1. Sauté the onion until soft.
  2. Add the garlic and broccoli, stir.
  3. Add the stock and simmer for 5-10 minutes until the broccoli is tender.
  4. Transfer into a blender and blend until smooth
  5. Season with salt and pepper and serve.

notes

Using the broccoli stalks as well as the florets makes the broccoli go further, saving money.

Sprinkle with a few chile flakes before serving.
