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.
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
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.
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.
