Easy Broccoli Soup

Winter has arrived in Stellenbosch! The cold weather made me long for soup the whole day, the only question was whether I would make broccoli or butternut soup. Clearly broccoli won, but butternut soup can be made exactly the same way by just substituting the butternut for the broccoli.

Easy Broccoli Soup
Serves a lot, at least 4 ravenous people

  • 2 Broccoli heads, broken into small florets
  • 1 large Onion, chopped
  • 2 Chicken Stock cubes
  • Milk for thinning

  1. In a large pot fry the onions until soft.
  2. Put the broccoli and stock cubes in the pot, add enough water to cover about half of the broccoli and bring to a simmer.
  3. When the broccoli is soft, put everything in a blender until the mixture is smooth.
  4. Return the mixture to the pot, add milk until the desired consistency is reached.
  5. Cook for a few minutes, add salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!


  1. Flavourful & healthy - what could be better?
