Cookbook | Homemade Cream of Broccoli & Cauliflower Soup

This week's soup is Cream of Broccoli & Cauliflower

A whole onion diced 
A floret of broccoli
A floret of Cauliflower
2 vegetable stock cubes
1 litre of water
Salt & pepper


1. Chopped the onions and using some sunflower oil I browned the onion, ginger and garlic.

Then I added the  vegetables and left them to cook with the lid on for about 15 mins, by then the vegs were tender.

I then added some salt and pepper and zeal.

I then added the stock to 1 litre of boiling water and added it to the soup, and left it to boil for 10 mins.

To finish it off I removed the stock from the vegetables and blended just the vegs, using a blender. Then I mixed the blended veg with the stock and returned it to the hob for 2 minutes to mix well. At this point I added some creme fraiche to be the 'cream' in 'cream of broccoli and cauliflower soup'!

The finished product, enjoy with a bun or croutons !
