OMG – it is happening again. I have written a recipe – or more shared a recipe haha. I am sorry I am so slack, with ten writers and about a dozen or so articles a week on Salty Popcorn I am literally drowning in movie reviews and if I write a recipe I am putting a foot on my own head (picture it), but today I said stuff that – get something up and out there! I have so many recipes and photos of recipes in a folder that I could keep going for a month so I will find the time and you will get them one day.

It is winter and the cooking is more enticing, while I am writing on Sundays the slow cooker is coming out and then I am cooking more weeknights so I can freeze stuff for work lunches and nights I get home late from movie screenings.

So last week I was stuck with a whole bunch of broccoli left over – my forgetful brain bought two lots of it in one week and ended up with about 2kgs of broccoli in the fridge. I use it all the time, in omelettes for breaky, stir fried with anything I am having for dinner, or just cold with some beetroot dip. So versatile, so healthy and you can eat about a kilogram a day if you want and you know what, it will do nothing but good for you :).

I just searched BROCCOLI SOUP recipes and this is one I found at COOKING QUINOA. I have tweaked it a tiny bit for my own taste but generally this is their recipe. With thanks :).

YOU WILL NEED:

  • 4 cups broccoli (fresh is best but frozen is cool too)
  • TBSP oil
  • 1 onion, chopped finely
  • 4 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 medium potato, peeled, cut into small cubes
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • nutmeg to taste – (I used about half a teaspoon and sprinkled on top as opposed to putting in the soup)
  • 1/2 tsp chilli flakes (I use Piri Piri in nearly everything :)) – although a teaspoon of Srirachi would also be ideal (my new addiction)
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa (I assume that all Cookingquinoa.net readers always have some quinoa leftovers on hand. If not, you will have to pre-cook 1 cup of quinoa for this soup or simply add uncooked quinoa with all the vegetables and additional liquid to the pot when making the soup.)
