SIMPLE, SOUPERIOR: Broccoli & stilton
I read once that you should try and allow one meal a day to be soup, in order to give your tummy a break from all that digestive business. Since reading that – and tired of flabby lasagne and dry sandwiches from the canteen – I decided my office packed lunches would be made up of fresh and delicious home-made soups.
Fresh soup is surprisingly simple – you generally boil up your ingredients and then whizz it down into the right consistency. Easy as that. I pour mine in to individual tupperware pots, freeze, and then take one portion from the freezer each morning.
So here’s the first soup insipration for you to try.
What you need:
2 heads of broccoli
1 large sweet potato
1 wedge of stilton
What to do:
Kettle on; big pan out; peeler, knife, choppingboard and food blitzer out.
Peel and chop all veg and place in the pan with half a kettle of water and leave to boil for 10 minutes, or until all is soft.
Once the pan of veg is cooked, crumble the cheese in and stir well before blitzing to a soup consistency.
It’s fine for you to add more water at this final stage if you prefer your soup to be ‘thinner’.
Serve and enjoy a hot dish of the soup before you have to clean the kitchen up.
