Suits all phases – Serves 6

Ingredients

1 Tbsp olive oil
1 brown onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1kg broccoli, florets and stems, chopped
4 cups vegetable or chicken stock
1/3 cup pine nuts
Salt and pepper

Method

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Add onion and garlic. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until soft.
  2. Add broccoli, stock and 2 cups water to pan. Cover and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, for 15 to 20 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat.
  3. Meanwhile, heat a small frying pan over medium heat. Dry-fry pine nuts, stirring, for 3 to 4 minutes or until golden. Keep a close eye on these as they can burn quickly. Add to soup.
  4. Using a food processor or blender, process soup in batches until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Return soup to pan. Stir over low heat for 8 minutes or until warmed through. Ladle into bowls and serve.
