This potato and broccoli soup recipe was given by a dear friend I met in Bucharest, Romania. This is a hearty soup with potatoes, broccoli, onion and garlic. I like to add some ginger in this soup during the winter. The ginger would help keep one warm.
200g potatoes, sliced
100g broccoli, chopped
1 medium brown onion, sliced
400ml vegetables stock or water
2 gloves garlic, sliced
2 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper
1. In a medium pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Stir fry the onion, potatoes, garlic and broccoli together for 2 - 3 minutes until soft.
2. Add in the vegetables stock/water and bring it to a boil, turn the heat to low and simmer for 10 - 12 minutes with the lid cover.
3. Remove from heat and blend with a hand held blender or a food processor. Blend until smooth. Bring it back to the pot(if you are using a food processor) and season with salt and pepper to taste. The soup is done when heat through. (You can add some water if the soup is too thick)
4. Scoop the soup into two serving bowls. Add some cream and sprinkle some chives on top. Serve hot with some crispy baguettes.
