Preparation

Step 1

Heat oil in a pressure cooker or a saucepan. Add the sliced onions and saute till they begin to soften.

Step 2

Add chopped garlic and continue to saute. Add chilli flakes - if using.

Step 3

Add the broccoli florets and stir fry for about a minute. Pour the vegetable stock and let it simmer. Cover and let it cook for about 10 to 12 minutes - if in a saucepan - check after 12 minutes if the broccoli is completely cooked.

Step 4

Remove from heat and let it cool slightly before blending till smooth.

Step 5

Once blended - return back to heat and add milk. Bring it to boil and adjust seasoning. Serve hot with slices of Focaccia Caprese or any flavoured bread

To make a basic vegetable stock, saute a sliced onion, sliced carrot, spring onions, black peppercorns and add water.
Let it cook till the vegetables are soft. Strain and use the liquid in the soup.
If you are using stock cubes - follow instructions on the packet and be careful when adding salt as they already contain salt.
Substitute cream for milk to make the soup richer and creamier.
