About this recipe:This broccoli and cauliflower soup is absolutely delicious. My boyfriend's favourite... this is a modification of his recipe. You can substitute the head of cauliflower for another head of broccoli if you want an all-broccoli soup.
1 medium onion, diced

Cook the onion in a pot with a little oil on low heat until it is clear and soft.
Roughly chop the broccoli and cauliflower and add to pot. Saute for a couple of minutes until broccoli is bright green in colour.
Add vegetable stock and replace lid on saucepan.
Simmer for 5-10 minutes until broccoli and cauliflower are soft and tender. Do NOT over-cook and have vegetables falling apart.
Blend together using blender or food processor, then blend again while slowly adding cream.
Mix cornflour with small amount of water (approximately 1 tablespoon) until liquid (not paste). Blend all mixture again and then return to pot.
Stir through parsley and simmer for 5-10 minutes until soup thickens. Be careful not to burn the soup to the bottom of the pot.
Great wee recipe quick and easy and really nice soup, I was looking for a recipe to use up the veg in the fridge, delighted. I will definately be cooking this one when I need to impress some lunch visitors or for a starter - 04 Jun 2012
