Long time readers will already know. I am the broccoli whisperer.
There are a lot of super powers out there and, to be honest, I wish my super power was something sexier - like invisibility or the ability to fly. Instead I'm the champion of getting broccoli devoured with gusto.
thermomix cream of broccoli soup
Yield 4 serves
A cream of broccoli soup recipe so good that the kids will ask for seconds!
100g cheddar cheese
1 tbs vegetable stock paste
salt and pepper
Weigh 100g cubed cheddar into the TM bowl. Process at speed 6 for 5 seconds. Remove the cheese from the TM bowl and set aside.
Add 900g water, 750g broccoli florets and 1 tablespoon of vegetable stock paste to the TM bowl. Cook for 20 minutes, temperature 100C, speed 1.
Add 200g cream, cook 5 minutes, temperature 100C, speed 1.
Add the grated cheese and process for a further 1 minute on speed 2.
Serve with buttered toasted soldiers.
I've made this recipe in my thermo so many times I've lost count, but recently I've had feedback that this quantity of broccoli might be an overload.
I cut the broccoli into small florets, but you might like to process it before adding the water in step 2.
My souped power* doesn't just apply to cream of broccoli soup (click here for the non-thermomix version)!
