A recipe I found in my collection of cuttings from magazines. I'm posting it here for safe-keeping to try later, since I need to get rid of all these piles of papers I've collected over the last year. According to the magazine description, this is a light soup with light chicken stock.

  • 800 g fresh broccoli, diced along with stem
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 20 g butter
  • 1 12 liters low-fat chicken broth
  • 200 ml full cream
  • 6 tablespoons cream, lightly whipped
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • chopped toasted sliced almonds

Directions

  1. Saute onion in butter till transparent.
  2. Add broccoli, saute for two minutes.
  3. Pour stock. Season.
  4. Let simmer for 50 minutes without over-boiling.
  5. Add cream and simmer for 10 minutes, adjust seasoning.
  6. Blend with a hand blender.
  7. Strain and serve hot in soup cups, topped with whipped cream and a pinch of chopped toasted almonds.
