Broccoli Soup

Sometimes, all I want is a nice warm soup, like today. I woke up, and I was craving for warm soup. Soup it is then!Broccoli soup 3

I had every ingredient in my kitchen. I just needed to chop everything up and cook. Blender will do the rest. It doesn’t take long to cook the sweet potato if you chop it into small cubes. It will cook in 5 minutes. Then, it probably needs another 5 mins to cook the broccoli. Grind heaps of black pepper. It makes the soup really yum.

After everything is cooked. Just blend and season. It’s ready for you. You can have it warm or cold. The chicken stock can be replaced with vegetable stock. I garnished with some chopped pistachio and fried onion. A little bit of cheese or cream would be nice too. πŸ™‚

Hope you enjoy the recipe!
