Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 6 people
- 500 g broccoli, florets and stalk roughly chopped *see Instructions
- 100 g spinach
- 2 garlic cloves chopped
- 1 onion chopped
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1.5 vegetable stock cubes
- 800-850 ml hot water
- pepper to taste
*Prepare the broccoli rice by cutting off the broccoli stalk, slicing off the tough outer layer and chopping the stack roughly, along with the florets before adding into the blender. Blitz until the mixture becomes crumbly (not mushy) Avoid overcrowding the blender and make broccoli rice in batches if you have to.
Dissolve the stock cubes in hot water.
In a large pot heat up the oil, add the garlic and onion and fry over a medium heat for 2 minutes, stirring often. Add the broccoli rice and continue cooking for 5 minutes, stirring often. Add the spinach, pour in the stock (most of it), cover and bring to a boil, then simmer for 3 more minutes. Puree the soup, add the remaining stock if necessary, adjust the seasoning (I only added some pepper) and enjoy!
