I just had this wonderful soup and it took me less than 20 minutes to prepare.
I’m in a red-green mood today, so that’s why i felt like preparing it, and also because i had this broccoli stored and i was already desiring for its soup…
Curiosity about the colors: red is known to be a warm and active color and green is a calm, sensitive and sincere color.
It serves one person (if you are hungry and will eat nothing but the soup).
– 1 Broccoli
– 1 fresh chilli (or another red peper you know)
– 1 tea spoon of Curry (or as much as you like)
– 1/2 tea spoon of Hot Paprika
– Some fresh herbs: Basilic and ThymeÂ (you don’t need to exagerate here, it’s just to give it some taste).
– 5 Red Pear Tomatoes
– Olive oil
How to prepare:
Put some water to boil (in a pan that fits all the broccoli); when it’s boiling add the broccoli in it (after deviding it in many small branches), you can add its leaves if you want to. Let them immersed for three minutes, more or less. Put the broccoli and the basilic in a blender with more or less 1 and 1/2 glasses of the water you used to cook it. Blend it for 40 seconds (you don’t want it to be too thick or too thin – check the picture above).
Now put some olive oil in a pan and add the curry, the paprika and the tomatoes (cut in pieces) and stir it a bit. Then add the broccoli cream, adding salt and the thyme leaves.
Put it in the plate, and decorate it with the chopped chilli.
Usually i don’t put that much salt, so i like to add some more “Fleur de Sel” in the end, cause it gives a nice taste and sensation. Enjoy!
