Broccoli Soup made from Stalks

2-2 ½ Pounds of broccoli stalks, ensuring the woody tough ends and layers removed cut into small pieces around 1 inch in size.

I large potato around 8 oz cut into cubes

I medium chopped onion

2 large garlic cloves chopped ( I used 3 as I love Garlic )

2 tablespoons of olive oil, or large knob of butter 

2 pints or around 6 cups of veggie stock

2 teaspoons of sea salt

Freshly ground pepper to taste

Chop the Broccoli stalks and remove woody sections and chop to small Inch pieces, chop potato into cubes.

chopped stalks and potatos

Melt the olive oil or butter ( I used a little of each ) add the chopped onion and chopped garlic and sauté until the onions look clear over a slow heat.

Put in the Veggie stock, Broccoli, potato and seasoning to taste into the pan and bring to the boil then allow to simmer, partially cover with lid so you don’t lose any liquid until the stalks are tender. ( the recipe I followed recommended 20 mins, but I did them for longer until I could easily stab a fork into the stalks)

Add stock, stalks and potato

Bring off the heat, and use a Hand blender to blend the soup to a creamy consistency.  And Serve…….

Blend together until smooth

(( PLEASE BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO BRING OUT THE BLENDER WHILE ON AS YOU COULD BE SPLASHED WITH HOT SOUP AND BURN YOURSELF.))

Serve immediately with a sprig of parsley. Buttered toast goes well with this, Veggie Mite goes well with this or Marmite, or a toasted cheese sandwich cut into thin slices. Delicious!

I made enough  in  two cooking sessions for 12 bowls of soup. The surplus I cooled in the fridge and then froze for later use.

I hope you try this inexpensive very nutritious soup.

Broccoli properties are very good for reducing cholesterol and more information about the nutrient values can be found Here   You can also just make this recipe using the florets. I hope you enjoy…

    Oo…this sounds easy! Hmm..don’t have a hand blender though…will it work if we cool it and blend it in a blender instead?

    Looks delicious, can’t wait to try it. Jamie Oliver also has a recipe to use the stalks in a mixture of potato, broccoli and pea mash! Love David
