Method to make Broccoli Broth

  1. Clean and wash the broccoli head. Broccoli is rich in vitamin A, C and many anti-oxidants. To read in detail about the nutritional benefits of broccoli, check out our detailed article on health benefits of broccoli
  2. Separate the stalks and florets from the broccoli head. In this recipe, we will be using the florets. You can discard the stalks or use them to make recipes like broccoli soup or broccoli and almond soup.
  3. Chop the onions, garlic, carrots, celery and keep them ready. These vegetables are the main ingredient of the classic French mirepoix (a flavorsome base) which is used to make a wide variety of stocks, soups and sauces.
  4. Heat the olive oil in a deep non-stick pan. You can also make use of butter or refined oil but, olive oil is a healthier option as compared to them.
  5. Add the onions.
  6. Add the garlic. If you are Jain, you can skip adding onions and garlic.
  7. Add the carrots. Instead of thinly slicing, you can even quickly grate them using a grater.
  8. Also, add the celery. If you have leeks then you can also toss in some to the broccoli broth.
  9. Sauté everything on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes. When these subtle flavor boosters are sautéed on a medium flame, they release juices which enhances the overall flavor of the Broccoli Broth.
  10. Add the broccoli and salt.
  11. Also, add 2½ cups of hot water, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
  12. Add the pepper and mix well. Freshly ground black pepper not only add heat but also, depth to the broccoli broth.
  13. Serve the Broccoli Broth hot.

A very simple soup which is 10/10 in taste and look without any use of vegetable stock. Pepper powder gives it a flavourful perk. Its a soothing soup during cold and cough too.
