Broccoli, Lemon & Parmesan Soup

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.

 
    At the moment, it seems that a lot of friends are suffering from colds or manflu which put thoughts of soup in my mind.  Soup is a dish we turn to when we feel under the weather but it also makes a great comfort food when you are in full health!  A bowl of soup can also be a bowl of health too.   I’m trying to get back into eating soups as it’s not often a dish that comes up when I think about what to have for lunch or dinner most days.  When I suggest soup to the Chief Taster he gives me the same look when I say I am baking with flaxseed.  Although I forced a bowl on him yesterday (there’s an image you can all enjoy) and he was as surprised as I was how we had forgotten how delicious a bowl of soup is.   
   

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.
