Food for Friends

After a summer with a lot of BBQing, picnics, eating at restaurants or at friends, Food for Friends has finaly returned ;) Food for Friends is the food part of my blog and contains recipes that are easy, quick and fill a lot of stomachs. See Food for Friends in the tag cloud to the right for more recipes.

Today I will show you a super easy recipe of a broccoli soup that I tried last week. I love soups because they are easy to make, usually not that expencive and are perfect now when we are getting closer to the colder season.

Super easy broccoli soup
This is what you need for 4 persons:

1 onion
2 potatoes
250g broccoli
12 dl boullion (I would take less water for a more creamy soup)
2dl cream (not whipping cream, but the one for cooking/food)
salt and pepper

Peel and slize the onion and potatoes. Chop the broccoli into pieces.
Boil the bouillion and add the vegetables. Let it boil for 10 minutes. Blend the soup with a hand blender or a food processor. Put it back in the sauce pan and add the cream.
Warm it til it boils again and add salt and pepper. Taste. Done :)

Serve as a starter, or add i.e. bread on the side for a main course. You could also add fish, shrimps, creyfish/lobster tails, whole pieces of vegetables or even chicken for a more filling soup.

Chop and slize

Bouillion (still having some from Spain :)

Done! We had garlic bread on the side.

As I wrote before, broccoli is a super vegetable with a lot of vitamins and antioxidants!

The recipe comes from here orgininally (Swedish site).
