When you’re stuck at home sick, there’s nothing better than a big bowl of homemade soup.
Over two years ago I whipped up a super easy thick soup, and shared it on this blog over the World Wide Web. I had only been blogging a short time and I didn’t know much at all about photography. Or how to take good food photos. Or that it’s really hard to make soup look pretty.
Now that in itself isn’t so bad – we all learn as we go, right? But when it got linked to last year by Money Saving Mom (number 45) my post got and continues to get clicked on. A LOT.
When I look back now at the awful photo of green goop, I admit it’s pretty dang embarrassing. I mean, who the heck would want to make / eat THAT??
I thought it was time to (attempt to) redeem myself by remaking the soup and taking better photos of this simple bowl of comfort. So here it is again, revisited and revised. Enjoy!
- 1 cauliflower
- 1 bunch broccoli
- 1 medium brown onion
- 2 cups vegetable stock
- Chop the onion and break the cauliflower and broccoli into small pieces.
- In a large pot brown the onion, then the add cauliflower and broccoli. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Add stock and bring to the boil.
- Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes or until the cauliflower and broccoli are soft. Allow to cool for 15 minutes.
- Use a hand mixer (or in batches in a blender) to whiz the soup until smooth.
- Stir over medium heat until hot. Season to taste and serve with sprigs of fresh parsley.
