  This simple Broccoli soup is on the table in less than half an hour. Serve with plenty of garlic bread.        My 6 year old son  loves it…..

       INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups chopped broccoli (stems and florets)
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion                                                                    IMG_5909
  • 1/2 cup chopped carrot
  • 1/4 cup chopped potato (optional)
  • Ginger a small piece
  • 1 tsp Butter
  • Water or Vegetable Stock
  • Salt to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper

      METHOD

  • Melt 1 tsp  butter in heavy medium pot over medium-high heat.
  • Add broccoli, onion, carrot and potato and saute until onion is translucent, about 6 minutes. Add stock or water and bring to boil.
  • Cook until broccoli and potato is tender, about 15 minutes.
  • Remove it from the flame and let it cool. When completely  cool with a blender, puree the soup.
  • And add it to the cooking pot and Add salt and pepper, to taste, and then replace the lid back on the pot. Bring  to a boil.
  • Serve hot with Homemade Garlic Bread.

Note:

– adding potato is optional but I prefer adding them as it gives a good taste and thickens to the soup.

– adjust the water quantity to the soup as no cornflour is used.

-I personally don’t prefer adding cornflour for some soups.
