BM #71 Week 1 Day 2 -
For today, explore the flavor of this simple soup with Broccoli and potato. I found that the soup was a meal by itself when paired with croutons and salad.
My older one who loves broccoli in a salad found it hard to take in the soup. I didn't think of it as surprising as she is not a soup person. My little one was so happy to slurp in this soup for dinner. In fact she asked me to save the soup for her for the next day's dinner as well. My husband just slurped his soup with no comment. So I got a wide spectrum of reviews for this soup :).
Broccoli Florets 3 cups
Potato peeled and cubed 1.5 cups
Water or Vegetable Stock 4-5 cups
Salt and Pepper as needed
Seasoning (Oil/Butter 1 Tbsp, Garlic grated 1 tsp, Cinnamon 1/2 inch, Cloves 2-3)
Method Of Preparation -
In a pressure cooker or a heavy bottomed pan, add oil/butter and saute garlic until golden brown. Saute the cinnamon and cloves as well.
Add in the potatoes and broccoli. Add water or vegetable stock and cook for about 15 minutes or about 2 hisses.
Upon cooling, blend the boiled mixture into a smooth soup.
Pour it back into a heated pan, sprinkle adequate salt and pepper. Let it simmer.
Serve warm with salad and croutons for a filling meal.
