Here are the happy gardeners with their pick. 5 broccoli’s, 1 cabbage, 1 cauliflower, 10 or so beetroot. We also had oodles of spinach and bok choy ready to go.

I’m going to roast these beauties up tonight for dinner.

Now you know I love my soup, so 1 and a half of those 5 broccoli’s went into this delicious creamy broccoli soup for lunch today.

The recipe is a simple one:

1-2 garlic

oil

.5kg – 1kg of broccoli

equal amount of chicken or vegetable stock

a generous pour of cream

.

Fry the garlic in a little olive oil, or butter, or both. Add a few broccoli stalks as you’re going.

Add as much broccoli as you can fit in your pot. I could only get about 700gm in mine, so then added equal amount of stock.

Simmer for 10 minutes.

Let it cool and then blend with about 1/3 cup of cream and salt and pepper.

.

Serve hot, with cheese toast!

(I wont tell you how good it is for you in case you don’t try this super easy soup, but broccoli is awesomely for you!)
