I don't know if it's perhaps a 'getting older' thing, but I appear to like cuddling up with a bowl of soup more than I used to. For most of my life I considered it not a real meal and I can remember refusing to eat it at the dinner table (when I was like, four not last week or anything).
This particular soup is one I make often (sometimes I overdo the sesame seeds, sometimes - but rarely - I sprinkle them on just right) and was actually an accidental recipe. I was making my favourite soy sauce recipe and discovered that broccoli soaked in soy sauce is actually to die for.
Try it below and watch broccoli become your new staple vegetable.
* Try not to do what I did and cover the soup in a blanket of sesame seeds (so much that it looks like a kiwi fruit), and be too impatient/busy to make another batch exclusively for a blog photo. This is why I'm not a cook by trade.
