Broccoli Soup with a Kick


This is my go to easy quick soup. Its filled with greens but has a bunch of flavour thanks to the curry powder. So don’t stress it does taste amazing even if it looks more like a detox meal than a winter comfort. I love any soup served with a fresh slice of sough dough.


  • 1 leek or onion diced

  • 2 small broccoli heads or 1 large, cut the florets off from the stem

  • 2 zucchinis, diced

  • 1 potato, diced

  • 1 teaspoon curry powder

  • 5 cups of vegetable stock

  • 2 handfuls of spinach (optional)

  • salt and pepper to season

  1. Place a drizzle of olive oil in a deep pot, place on the stove top and over a medium heat lightly fry off onion until softened. Add curry powder and stir to coat onion.

  2. Add the potato for a minute or two to allow to soften slightly and coat with the curry powder.

  3. Now throw in the broccoli and zucchini. Stir to combine before pouring in the stock. For a lighter soup you can add an extra cup of stock.

  4. Bring the mix to the boil and then lower to a gentle simmer. Leave for 20-30 minute or until broccoli and potato has softened. Turn stove off, season mix and if adding the spinach then throw in now, and leave to cool down. Once cool, use a blitzer to vitamise the soup to a smooth consistency or place in a blender. I have such a sense of satisfaction when blitzing smoothies and soups. Reheat and serve!
