Easy and quick soup! You will need:
1) 3 cups of broccoli florets [make sure they are green and firm]
2) salt to taste
4) sour cream for garnish
Fill a pot with water and bring to a rolling boil. Season the water with salt. When it coming to a rolling boil add the broccoli florets and cover immediately. Covering it will help retain the green-ness of the broccoli. Boil for 5 minutes, or until softened [knife runs through]. Drain of water, but make sure to keep some water aside to use while blending. In a blender place the boiled broccoli florets and add 1/2 cup of water [more if you want it runnier]. I like it a little thick. Blend well. Season with pepper and more salt is needed. Serve warm with a dollop of sour cream. It goes well with goat cheese and walnuts. Here’s a video of the recipe by Chef Gordon Ramsey.
