RECIPE: Soy & Broccoli Soup





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.

Ingredients
1 chopped garlic clove
Half an onion, chopped
5-7 broccoli florets
one vegetable stock cube
300ml boiling water
1 tablespoon soy sauce
Salt and pepper, to taste
Mixed herbs, to taste
Sprinkle of black sesame seeds

Method
1. In a saucepan, fry the onions and garlic in oil until soft
2. Dissolve the stock cube in the boiling water, and pour into the sauce pan
3. Add soy sauce and broccoli to pan and bring to boil. Cook until softened
4. With a hand blender, blend until smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste
5. Once transferred to serving bowl, sprinkle* on black sesame seeds (do this right before serving as these seeds sink ever so slightly).

* 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.
