Broccoli Soup


 

Its winter here and perfect to enjoy some warm soups to beat the cold.   On going through my blog index I found I have not added any soups and thought of adding few soups in the coming days here.

Normally I like to have the soup  without  adding much of butter or cream.  Its purely optional upto you if you want you can make it more creamy by adding more milk/cream. I like to always retain  the beautiful green and hence I add a dash of milk only. I like the nice garlic smell in this soup, hence I have garnished it with well fried garlic.




Time taken : 30 minutes
Serves : 2 bowls

Ingredients

Broccoli - 2 cups
Low fat milk/cream – ¼ cup
Fresh ground pepper - ½ tbsp
Green chilli – 1 no
Garlic –  2 cloves (one to cook and another one to roast)
Lime juice – 1 tbsp (upto your level)
Sugar – a pinch
Salt according to taste

Garnish

Add ½ tsp oil and roast the finely chopped garlic


Method:

Pressure cook broccoli, garlic, green chilli in a cooker with salt. When broccoli is cold blend the broccoli into creamy consistency.

Transfer the pureed broccoli to a soup pan, add some salt. At this point you can add milk and allow it boil. Add pepper and allow it boil and off the flame and add the lime juice to your level of taste.

Serve hot topped with the fried garlic and with Croutons.

I have used the brown bread sticks to serve this soup. I just toasted the brown bread and cut them into sticks.

Very healthy soup ready.
