We love a bit of soup in this house. I may have mentioned it a time or 7 It’s ridiculously easy to make and yet it only crossed my mind to attempt making it in the last 3 or 4 years. I can’t even buy homemade type soups in the supermarket anymore I’ve ruined it for myself with such lovely soupiness. Now, there’s a bit of boasting for you.
This broccoli one is super easy. Or should that be souper easy. Groan. Usually soup is a bit of an empty out the fridge affair for me, but I kept this one simple.
- Fry up an onion & some garlic.
- Add 2 heads of broccoli chopped up small. Include stems except the really thick one & 1.5 litres of stock. As ever, I used Marigold – mostly low salt, sometimes not.
- Simmer for 20 mins.
- Serve with a blob of creme fraiche & some crushed chilli flakes. (I think I would add a red chilli into this recipe at the start if it wasn’t for a toddler too).
Enjoy while listening to the shoutiest boy I know screech blooooooopppp before every spoonful.
Then be smug because you have enough for lunch in work the next day too.
