Huh?! Real children eating real broccoli?


Well OK, not ACTUALLY broccoli, but broccoli soup!

(Or: what do you cook when all that's left in the fridge is a couple of heads of broccoli that might not be fresh enough to steam?)




Broccoli Soup. Even kids will eat it.




1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, sliced
1 tblsp olive oil
4 small to medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 medium sweet potato, peeled and cubed
2 heads broccoli, chopped
1.5 litres vegetable stock (or chicken)
salt and pepper and nutmeg




Cook onion and garlic in the oil in a big saucepan. Add the potatoes & sweet potato & broccoli and cover with the stock. Bring to boil then simmer for about 20 minutes or until the potato is easily sliced or squashed. Or perhaps I could have said: cooked. Season. Mine (above) served with wee dollop of sour cream and cracked black pepper.


You could halve the stock and whizz this up for babies. Yum!
