Roasted Broccoli and Garlic Soup

Posted on Mar 3 2011 - 2:16am by Mike Lieberman

When I was a kid broccoli was one of the only veggies that I actually liked, but I used to eat them floating in a pool of melted butter (or whatever it was). Since broccoli is tough to be eaten it’s raw form, this roasted soup is a nice way to get more broccoli in your meals during the cold winter months.

This broccoli soup is dairy and gluten free.

    Here’s what you’ll need:
  • 2 heads of broccoli
  • 1/2 parsnip
  • 1/4 medium sized onion
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • Tablespoon of olive oil
  • Dash of sea salt
  • 4-6 cups of homemade vegetable broth
    How to make:
  • Chop up broccoli and put into bowl
  • Slice up parsnip, onion and smashed garlic and put into bowl with broccoli
  • Pour olive oil over the veggies with salt and toss to coat
  • Put on a baking sheet into the oven at about 375-400 degrees for 15-20 minutes until they start to brown
  • Flip over veggies and roast for another 10-15 minutes
  • Add to your blender or food processor with about 2 cups of veggie broth, removing some pieces of broccoli for garnish
  • Blend up, slowly adding more veggie broth to your desired consistency
  • Pour into pot and warm over the stove
  • Continually stir the soup as you want to warm it and not boil it
  • Transfer to bowl and top with roasted broccoli pieces

    We start with a portion of the warm broccoli and roasted garlic soup. Despite not being a soup enthusiast, this soup manages to win my heart. It is light, not very salty and fills you up before the main course can make its appearance.
