Broccoli Cauliflower Soup



I have already gone on and on about how I love winter, the vegetables, the chaat. I also love the prices of vegetables in winter. So when the local vendor starts selling broccoli at about a fourth of the price he sells it as for the rest of the year, I have to stop and take notice. While I’ve used broccoli a lot in stir fries and salads, I haven’t used it that much in soups. I tried this combination of cauliflower and broccoli in this hearty soup that the two of us thoroughly enjoyed.


1 cup Broccoli florets
1 cup Cauliflower florets
1 tsp Butter
1 tsp Flour
1 cup Milk
1 tsp Chilli Flakes
½ tsp Basil
½ tsp Parsley
Salt to taste


Cook the broccoli and cauliflower florets until soft. Blend in a liquidizer.


Heat the butter in a pan. Add the flour and fry for a couple of minutes without browning the flour. Add the milk and mix well. Bring to a boil over a low flame, stirring continuously. Add the broccoli-cauliflower puree and mix well. Season with the chilli flakes, basil and parsley. Add salt to taste. Bring the entire soup to a gentle boil and enjoy it when hot.
