Broccoli Soup

You may well know that Hugh Fernley-Whittingstall is my life style guru. He’s definitely been an inspiration in how I want to live my life. This soup came about because of being reminded about how you can clear your fridge of any aging vegetables and make soup. Not that I need reminding really but it does help and I do get a sense of achievement when I’ve done it.

I had two broccoli heads I had bought that had been reduced for about 25p each and I hadn’t had a chance to use them. I decided It was possible to make some soup.

Soup 1

After frying some onions, garlic with a little celery salt (you can use normal salt) and a couple of carrots, I broke up the broccoli and popped it in the pan and added enough stock to just cover the veg.

Soup 2

I cooked it until the veg was tender and then whizzed it up in my blender and put it back in the pan. I had a little soft goats cheese in the fridge that needed using so I popped that in.

Voila, a lovely nutritious lunch for the two of us for at least three days! 🙂

One thought on “Broccoli Soup

  1. Lovely! I know your’s is broccoli – but cauliflower soup is the creamiest,mildly flavoured lovely soup I know using brassicas. Add some ground almonds- just a little – and the taste is tremendous! I love the ay you’ve added the cheese – I am hanging on to some ends of Parmesan intending to make a milder broccoli and stilton soup one day!
