Brocolli Soup


I have been sluggish in updating my blog... not that I am not in the mood, there were so many 'happenings' at the moment... one of those 'happenings' is my camera~ my 'faithful' Lumix is giving up on me.., I think it is in it's last 'tour' of duty :(... sigh... sad ... so... sad.

While I am thinking of which camera to buy...  that will not burn a big hole in my pocket...  I'll be using Miss E's camera ... (or could be permanently using hers... :) hahaha ... )

Back to our food topic... Brocolli soup... I first made Brocolli soup... may be 3 years ago before my 'blogging' life... Mr H and I loved it...Mr H Jr and Miss E would put on their 'very looooong unhappy faces' ... well what can I say... kids and vegetables!!! This could be due to its texture that is not as smooth as other vegetables soup..(or could be me ~ did not blend long enough to create that 'smooth' ness)...

  • 1 brown onion ~ chopped
  • broccolli - cut into florets
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 300ml cooking cream
  • chicken stock
  • almonds flakes
Saute onion in 2 tablespoon olive oil until translucent. Add broccolli then chicken stock. Bring to a quick boil. Leave it to cool and puree until smooth. Bring the pureed broccolli to just about to boil and add in cream, grounded nutmeg, salt and pepper.
Serve with crusty bread

  1. This might be one good way to make the kids eat(or drink) their broccoli.
