Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 head of broccoli
    1/2 head of cauliflower
    2 teaspoons powdered chicken stock
    6 cups water
    1 teaspoon crushed chilli
    Spices of choice

Directions

Chop up the broccoli and cauliflower, then place all ingredients in a big pot. Cook for around half an hour, to 3/4 of an hour until vegies are soft. Use a potato masher to mash them up, and serve.

I use various spices each time I make this soup, one of my favourite combinations is coriander, cinnamon and tumeric, but you can experiment and see what you like best.

Serves 6 - freezes very well too.

    I put broccoli and cauliflower in the blender and it has a wonderful mashed potato flavor. Top with a slice of low fat cheese and you are in heaven. - 12/1/09

    Tasted really great. I added a pinch of nutmeg and 1/4 tsp oregano. Instead of chicken stock I used vegetable stock and finished it off with 1 tsp light sour cream. I used my hand blitzer instead of the masher. We just loved it. - 4/16/11

    I made this soup and loved it - but added 2 small triangles of laughing cow cheese to make it creamier - and just used some salt and pepper, and a bit of nutmeg. But I think I am going to add different spices each time I have a bowl and see what happens! - 3/7/11

    I puréed the soup for a smooth texture. I used turmeric, chili paste and ground white pepper and the soup has a kick to it! Next time I think I'll add a cup of skim milk & a few tbsp of corn starch to add protein and make it a "cream of" soup ;) - 4/25/09

  • Very Good, but calories and nutrients such as potassium and vitamin C are more than double for the ingredients listed. One bunch broccoli + plus 1/2 head cauliflower = approximately 300 calories for the 6-serving recipe. That's about 50 calories per serving, not 19.9 calories. - 2/4/13

  • If you're doing low carb, add some cream and it's even yummier! - 10/15/12

  • This calorie count does not look correct. 1/2 head of cauliflower is over 100 calories. - 5/27/12

  • This is excellent for adding vegetables, filling you a bit more and adding very few calories. I used it as a first course before baked beans and egg on toast for lunch. Great! - 8/8/11

  • Was wondering how much (measurement) of the coriander, cinnamon and tumeric you use in the soup? - 11/5/09

  • It was delicious. I put it through the blender and froze some for later. Well worthit. - 8/5/09

  • Maybe I just needed different spices (I used spices I normally like in other dishes), but this one didn't do it for me. I might try it again at a later date with different spices, however I am unsure about how much of any spice to add since there is no guide in the recipe. - 3/24/08
