Broccoli, Lemon & Parmesan Soup
A comforting bowl of soup
Broccoli lemon soup with Parmesan make a great comfort food soup. The lemon gives this soup a great flavour to awaken your taste buds.
I love roasted broccoli with lemon and parmesan so thought to myself, why not put those flavours in a soup? Plus, broccoli is an antioxidant powerhouse, with key vitamins, flavonoids and carotenoids. It is great to help battle both chronic inflammation and the risk of developing cancer.
I used every part of the broccoli stalk in this recipe too. Inspired by grandmothers who would boil vegetables until you could press them through a sieve, I boiled it all for a good 20 minutes to make sure that the stalk was cooked too. Why waste the stalk? I would use it with my spiralizer so why not throw it in the pot too. Roasting the broccoli would make a great tasting soup but it would have taken longer to cook so that’s for another day.
