I bought some cheap broccoli from my local vegetable shop and decided to make soup with it - along with other bits of pieces in my fridge. One of the other ingredients in this dish are tinned new potatoes, my new favourite thing. Here's what I came up with, it's super delicious and fresh!
Ingredients (serves 4 as a starter)
1 onion, sliced
1 very large clove of garlic, or two small cloves, roughly sliced
one large broccoli, florets only
3 sticks of celery, chopped
3 tinned new potatoes, cut in half
half a chilli, deseeded and chopped
1.2 litres boiling water to one chicken stock cube
8 whole coriander seeds
1 tsp coriander
a pinch of chilli flakes (optional)
salt and pepper
1. Start by frying the onion and garlic in a little vegetable oil for minute and then add the celery and broccoli.
2. Stir for a few minutes and put in everything else. Cover with a lid and simmer for around 15 minutes.
3. Now you have the choice of eating the soup as it is, or blending it in a food processor.
