My homemade broccoli soup – a warming comforting lunch!

Today we’re going to be making this
warmingly delicious cream of broccoli soup. Welcome back to our kitchen where we
show you how to make delicious family friendly recipes. On the menu today is a
really tasty broccoli soup with a couple of extra veggies thrown in for good
measure, plus plenty of toppings – because I love
my toppings. We’re going to start by adding a tablespoon of olive oil to the
pan, now we’re going to add a large diced onion to that pan and cook for a couple
of minutes until the onion starts to soften. Now we’re going to add in the
cauliflower and broccoli, I’ve got a full head of each chopped into florets. Into that goes a litre and a half of
stock, I’m using chicken stock but if you wanted to make a vegetarian version you
could just use veggie stock instead. Add in half a teaspoon of garlic salt and
bring to the boil and then simmer for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes I’m going to
add in 90 grams or 3 packed cups of kale and cook for a further 5 minutes. At this
stage I’m going to fry up some croutons in a pan because I love toppings on
soups. Cook some bread cubes in a tablespoon of vegetable oil with a pinch
of salt and pepper over a high heat until nice and crispy. At this point I’m going to take the soup
off the heat and blitz carefully using a stick blender. Give it a good blitzing
then place back on the heat. Add in a hundred grams or a packed cup of grated
strong cheddar cheese, four tablespoons of double or heavy cream and a pinch of
salt and pepper, add a good squeeze of lemon juice about tablespoon give it a
stir and cook for another couple of minutes until the cheese is melted. Divide into bowls and drizzle with a
little oil and cream and add in those fried crispy croutons I also like to add
a few baby leaves and chilli flakes too. That’s my comforting cream of broccoli
soup packed with healthy veggies and made all the more comforting with the
addition of cheese, cream and those crispy croutons, it’s going to make a
fantastic lunch see you next time. [Music plays]
