Broccoli Walnut Soup

Broccoli Walnut Soup

From a very long time, I’ve been debating on this combination. Finally I made this Soup today. Was creamy to the core. Subtle garlicky flavour and a gentle sprinkle of coarsely crushed pepper further enhanced the taste. Broccoli and Walnuts are a  Sure Shot Winning Combination. 

Ingredients

Steamed Broccoli florets – 4 cups

Finely chopped walnuts –  2 tablespoons

Milk powder – 3 tablespoons

Salt to taste

Coarsely crushed black pepper powder – 2 pinches

Water – 3 cups

Slightly Sauté in oil 

Oil – 1 tablespoon

Chopped onions – 1 cup

Chopped  garlic flakes –  6

Saute  to a  transparent  colour

Topping for the Soup

Grated Cheddar Cheese – little

Chopped steamed Broccoli florets – little

Onions – sliced and deep fried in oil to a  dark golden colour – little

Method

Take a big blender jar. Add in all the above mentioned ingredients along with the sautéed onion and garlic. Blend to a fine purée. Transfer the Broccoli Walnut purée to a pan. Heat the pan. Keep it on sim flame. Once the Soup boils, switch off the stove. Pour into Soup cups and garnish.

Chef’s Tip’s

1) While warming the Soup , please be careful to keep it on simflame, so that the Soup will not discolour.

2) The consistency of the Soup has to be thick, so as to hold the toppings.

3) The crunchy fried onions used for the Soup topping  just melts in the mouth as you bite into it.
