Now that the cat is out of the bag, and you all know I will be competing for a white apron on Master Chef, I can share my inspiration for this soup!
I was inspired by none other than Gordon Ramsay!! One day early last week, I was binge watching Youtube when I came across a super easy broccoli soup recipe by GR. I decided to recreate it and put my own twist on it.
The soup is delicious on its own and makes for a great base for a number of toppings! I list some of my favorites below.
Here is what I came with! 🙂
Prep: 5 minutes Cook: 10 minutes
2 1/2 cups broccoli florets
1 1/2 cups low sodium vegetable stock
1 cup water
pinch of kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
goat cheese, crema
toasted baguette, croutons
herbed oil, parsley, cherry tomato
1. In a pot, boil broccoli in water and vegetable stock, just until broccoli is cooked (overcooking will cause soup to loose bright green color). Season with salt, pepper and garlic.
2. In a blender, such as a Nutribullet, blend broccoli and 1 1/2 cup of the stock/water. Blend until smooth.
3. Pour into a bowl and garnish as desired!
4. Enjoy 🙂
