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.

    This looks really good, but I’m a huge fan of soups. My unhusband? Not so much.

    Use all organic ingredients and you have a winner! off the subject but I tried connecting up with you via the links on the page (twitter, linkedin and FB) but none of them worked.
