We know the idea of Broccoli Soup doesn’t exactly sound appealing, but this soup is utterly delicious! Served with Gruyere Cheese, it’s the perfect winter warmer. (Recipe from Australian Woman’s Weekly)
2 Medium Onions, chopped
500g Broccoli, chopped
4 Cups Water
1 Chicken Stock cube
1/3 cup Cream
½ cup Gruyere, grated
Salt and Black Pepper to taste
How to make it
Melt butter in a large saucepan and add onions.
Cook on medium heat until onions are soft, about 2 minutes.
Add Broccoli, Water and stock. Bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes.
Blend or liquidise mixture in batches until smooth.
Once everything is liquidised to a consistency that you like, return to the pan and add cream. Reheat without boiling.
Season to taste with salt and black pepper.
Garnish with grated Gruyere, Croutons and a dusting of Paprika.
- You can make this soup up to 2 days ahead of serving, and it can be frozen for 2 months.
