Broccoli, Courgette & Leek Soup

Recipes |

In autumn, we always love making soups. They are an excellent way to cook whatever’s left in your fridge or cupboards, reducing food waste: leftover vegetables, wilted herbs, cooked rice, these few tablespoons of uncooked orzo that have been sitting on the cupboard. But more than this, there is nothing more comforting than having a big pot of soup ready when you get home.

This soup is filled with vegetables which makes us feel that we are taking care of our bodies. It’s also a choose-your-own-adventure recipe, you can also add whatever herbs you fancy, rice, orzo or potato, and then serve it with either lemon juice and olive oil (our favourite), but also go for some cream and crumbled feta cheese (we wouldn’t say no to that either).

Serves 6

Ingredients

2 tbsp olive oil
1 large leek
1 large courgette
2 cloves of garlic
1 head of broccoli
6 cups of vegetable stock or water (we used 3 cups of stock and 3 cups of water)
60g rice, or 60g orzo or 1 potato, grated
Salt, pepper
Bay leaves
Olive oil, feta cheese, cream, lemon juice, fresh herbs (to serve)

Process

Finely chop the leeks, courgette and garlic.

Finely chop the broccoli stem and cut the rest into florets. Keep stem and florets separately.

In a medium-sized pot and over medium heat add the add the olive oil, leeks, and broccoli stem. Cook until leeks are translucent, for about 5-10 minutes.

Add the courgettes and garlic and cook for another 5-10 minutes.

Add the broccoli florets, together with the stock or water. Season with salt and pepper. Add the bay leaves.

Bring the soup to a boil, then lower the heat and let it simmer for 30 minutes, or until all the vegetables are tender. Add the rice, orzo or potato and cook for another 20 minutes, until they are cooked. If you are using leftover cooked rice or pasta, just add them and cook for 5-10 minutes, or until piping hot.

Serve with lemon juice and olive oil, or cream and feta cheese. Lots of fresh herbs and crusty bread too!
