Doesn't this look tempting? This elegant soup can be ready to serve in about 30 minutes. As Sweet Harold said while eating...."I can just feel the vitamins coursing through me!" You can enjoy this soup hot, room temperature or chilled. Don't skip the whipped cream sprinkled with curry. It was the PERFECT finishing touch.
4 cups water
2 cubes beef bouillon
Few grinds of black pepper
1/2 t. sea salt
broccoli florets from 1 large head of broccoli
1 1/2 zucchini, peeled and chopped into chunks
Boil water, add bouillon cubes, pepper and salt, stir to dissolve then add the chopped veggies and boil for about 15 minutes until vegetables are tender.
Purée soup using a blender - be careful, blenders don't really like hot soup and will spray it on your ceiling. Start with half the batch on low speed, ramp up to higher speed, then add the rest. The soup is then good to go.
Garnish each serving with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkle of curry powder.
