Bev's Broccoli Soup
Broccoli - whole or florets
1-2 Onions (peeled- one large or two small)
Chicken/veg stock (low sodium or homemade) adjust quantity depending on ingredients.
Leeks - 3-4, or just the one leftover in the fridge
Baby marrows (courgettes), turnip and potato all work too.
Rocket, basil, spinach, watercress, coriander - again if you like it, and up to a cup of each.
Garlic - to your taste
It's nicer if you fry the ingredients in coconut oil or butter in the pot you will use to make the soup - for about 3-5 minutes. But you don't have to. Throw everything into the pot and cover (just) with stock. Bring to boil and simmer for about 20 minutes. Turn off the heat and blend until smooth. Yum. I like it just like that.
But if you want to you can heat it up and add cheddar cheese (not too much) or cream.
This was inspired by Sarah Wilson in her book - "I quit sugar", but I couldn't find an online link.
