For veg broccoli soup

    For veg broccoli soup
  1. Since broccoli comes in a tree like shape, you have to remove the larger stalk and keep only the florets and the small stalks that are attached to it.
  2. To make veg broccoli soup, heat the butter in a deep non-stick pan, add the onions and sauté on a medium flame for 2 minutes. Sautéing the onions is important to remove their rawness and to ensure their taste is incorporated in the broccoli soup.
  3. Add the broccoli florets and stalks, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally. It is very important that the broccoli does not brown as it will not give a vibrant green color to the broccoli soup.
  4. Add the whole wheat flour, mix well and cook on a medium flame 1 minute, while stirring continuously making sure that the flour does not burn. The whole wheat flour is added to provide thickness to the broccoli soup in place of cornflour or plain flour, which should not be had by diabetics.
  5. Add 2 cups of water to the broccoli.
  6. Cook on a medium flame for 6 to 8 minutes, or till the broccoli florets and stalks are cooked. Keep aside to cool.
  7. Transfer the broccoli florets and stalks, along with the water, to a mixer and blend till smooth.
  8. Transfer the blended mixture into the same deep non-stick pan, add the milk, salt and freshly ground black pepper, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 4 to 5 minutes. The addition of milk makes the broccoli soup super creamy and rich.
  9. Serve the veg broccoli soup hot.
