This really is a very delicious soup and people who don’t like broccoli much will usually say it’s actually quite nice!!

Organic Vegan Broccoli Soup

  • 3-4  Heads of Broccoli – chopped (or 1 per person being served),
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil,
  • Big pot of Boiling Water (enough to cover the Broccoli),
  • Salt ‘n Pepper to taste

Bring the pot of water to boiling point, throw in the Broccoli and let go to boil again, add in some salt (skip the salt if you are going to use the excess ”stock” as liquid plant feed). Once boiling, time 3.5 – 4 minutes then switch off. It’s best to let it cool down a bit before throwing the broccoli chunks into the blender, blend some with about half a cup of the remaining water and keep blending / adding water little by little – DON’T add too much in one go! Just keep going until you have a nice smooth consistency, once you are happy then throw in the olive oil and blend again with your salt and pepper. Serve with some nice Crusty Soup bread – I like to do a large batch and freeze a couple servings to take to work in the coming months…

With the price of Organic produce going lower and lower, there’s no excuse anymore in not having at least a part-healthy diet! Yes, a head of Organic broccoli is about a third smaller than non-organic, but it’s the nutrient content and health benefits we are looking at, not the size (bulk) – FACT: Chemically treated produce has less nutrient value and ARE subsequently, bad for your health!!!
