B for blissful health…B for broccoli !! Try this broccoli soup & be in bliss.

Easy to do, the cashew lends it a milky flavor. So kids are happy to eat it too! Just do not tell them it's Broccoli.

This is a winter soup, best done when Broccoli is abundantly available.

 

 

Ingredients

  • Broccoli: 1 medium sized (cut into medium florets)
  • Onion: 1 medium sized
  • Cashew nuts: 5-6 (Soaked). If in a hurry, you can use powedered dry cashew too.
  • Coriander leaves : a handful
  • Rock salt & black pepper: as per taste

Method

  • Put the broccoli florets in a steamer, steam till soft.
  • Do not overcook. They should become bright green (and not lose color).
  • If you do not have steamer, put it in a wok with ½ glass water, and boil. Keep the boiled water aside, use it later to blend.
  • Chop the onion & dry roast it in a pan on slow flame, cover the pan. Cook till onions are golden brown & soft.
  • Soak cashew nuts in warm water for around an hour. Soaked nuts make the soup creamier. If you don't have time to soak, simply powder dry cashews and use.
  • Cool down the steamed broccoli & put it in a blender. Add roasted onions & cashews. Blend the mixture.
  • Transfer the blended mixture to a pan, add water to get the desired consistency of soup.
  • Add salt, black pepper & coriander leaves.
  • Give it a boil only once. Do no over do. Veggies lose their enzymes if cooked for too long.
  • Your soup is ready to be served.

Eating guide

  • Food group : Vegetables and nuts
  • Veggies, are loaded with enzymes and high water content. They aid in digestion and act as daily dose of vitamins and minerals.
  • Steaming or light cooking the veggies ensure you are able to retain the enzymes and the nourishment - making it easier for the body to complete its nutritional profile intake.
  • Nuts help us to meet the body’s requirement for bodybuilders and natural fats. They are also a great replacement to dairy!

Swatantra - I think it's all about minimizing the heat exposure to broccoli because heat destroys enzymes. So if you roast slowly at low flame, it should be fine.
