Poor Broccoli - often disregarded and thoughts of it are met with a scowl, it really does deserve to be treated better then that. This soup should turn even the most avowed broccoli hater into it's cheerleader. Try it, you won't be dissapointed.
Creamy Broccoli Soup
2 cups stock (chicken or vegetable, choice is yours)
2 medium sized potatoes, peeled and chopped into cubes
175g broccoli, cut into small pieces
½ cup cream
salt and freshly ground white pepper
50g broccoli, extra for decoration, chopped into small pieces and par boiled
In a pan heat up the stock, then add the potatoes and broccoli.
Cook over medium heat, covered, until the vegetables are soft.
Blend until smooth.
Add the cream, season with salt and pepper, add the par-cooked broccoli and gently reheat (don't let it boil once you've added the cream).
Spoon into bowls and serve with crusty bread.
