I really dont make soups often, but I love soups. Best advantage with it is, I can eat any sort of vegetable in soup form because I have the option of garnishing with so many herbs and spices and almost diminish the original taste of the vegetable still can intake the vegetable to 100% thereby getting all its nutrients ;)
So, sometimes when I try a whole new vegetable, safe way to go is soup and that's what I did when I got Broccoli for the first time :) Some Broccoli was left over and so combined it few others and made a greeny greeny soup ...
I used almost equal amount of each. Some florets of Broccoli, Few springs of cilantro , Few celery stalks, few spinach leaves slipped in boiling hot water with salt. Also added 4 pods of garlic and half an onion and an inch of ginger.
When they boiled enough, switch off and blend to purée. Garnish with dry herbs and pepper.
Drizzle a spoon of olive oil that gives a good glaze..Serve hot.
