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.


Serves: 6 

  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 medium heads of broccoli
  • 1 medium head of cauliflower
  • 750ml vegetable stock
  • 200ml cream
  • 2 tablespoons cornflour
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsely

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. Cook the onion in a pot with a little oil on low heat until it is clear and soft.
  2. Roughly chop the broccoli and cauliflower and add to pot. Saute for a couple of minutes until broccoli is bright green in colour.
  3. Add vegetable stock and replace lid on saucepan.
  4. Simmer for 5-10 minutes until broccoli and cauliflower are soft and tender. Do NOT over-cook and have vegetables falling apart.
  5. Blend together using blender or food processor, then blend again while slowly adding cream.
  6. Mix cornflour with small amount of water (approximately 1 tablespoon) until liquid (not paste). Blend all mixture again and then return to pot.
  7. 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.
  8. Serve with cracked pepper and fresh crusty bread.
