Serves 6 as a starter, 4 as a main

Ingredients 

700 – 800g broccoli
Fresh basil leaves (at least 6 per person)
Olive Oil
250ml fresh cream
250ml vegetable stock
Salt & black pepper
Feta

Method

  1. Cut the broccoli into smaller florettes. Steam for about 20 minutes (until just tender).
  2. Meanwhile, shallow fry the basil leaves taking care as they sputter! Remove the basil from the hot oil with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
  3. Combine the cooked broccoli, fresh cream and vegetable stock. Using a liquidiser or stick blender, liquidise it until the soup reaches the consistency you prefer (add more or less stock).
  4. Season well with salt and black pepper. Garnish with lots of crumbled feta and fried basil leaves.
