Cauliflower and Broccoli Soup Lemon Flavoured
Lemon Flavoured Cauliflower and Broccoli Soup
Soups are easy to make and a fresh, home made soup is much nicer than the ready made one. This is an easy soup to make. Serves 6
300 gm. cauliflower florets
150 gm. broccoli florets. If you don't have broccoli, use cauliflower alone.
1 onion, thickly sliced
1/4-1/6 lemon, skin included, cut into small pieces
2-3 cloves of garlic
1 inch piece of ginger, peeled and chopped
1 tbsp. butter or oil
2 cups milk and water 50/50. I use skimmed milk.
3 tbsp. vegetable stock granules of good quality. Use salt and pepper only, if you don't have stock.
Salt and pepper to taste
100 gm. Stilton or Saint Augur 'blue' cheese, grated or broken up
2 green chillies, thinly sliced. I do't de-seed mine.
Heat butter in a pan and fry all vegetables a little. Then cover and allow to simmer on medium heat for 10 minutes.
Add 1 cup of water and cook until soft.
Turn off the heat.
Add 1 cup of milk and liquidize in a blender or using a hand held blender, until smooth and creamy.
Adjust the thickness of soup, as required, by adding more milk/water.
Adjust salt, pepper.
Add cheese and stir gently, until it melts and mixes.
Serve hot, with a few slices of green chillies as garnish. I put chillies in the bowl and pour soup on top.
