    Hi, here is my post. Unfortunately I dont have a picture, its been quite some time that I did this recipe!! :-( Will try to add them soon.

    So, here is my and my family's most favorite, high calorie, yet nutritious soup –

    Broccoli Cheese Soup (Serves 2)

    Ingredients -

    Broccoli – 250 gms

    Cheese – 2 slices – tear into few pieces (If you are not calorie conscious, can add more slices too.. no particular count! J; I generally use the Britannia/Amul cheese slices that come in pack of 10; Any cheese is fine, but cheddar tastes better)

    Butter – 1 Teaspoon

    Garlic cloves – 2 - cut into nice pieces or better crushed nicely

    Corn flour – 2 tablespoons

    Milk – 1 tablespoon

    Pepper corns – 5 to 8 – crush it fresh

    Oregano – 1 tspn (Optional - I used to save the left out oregano packets while buying pizzas which always comes handy when needed)

    Salt – as needed

    Onion – 1 small chopped nicely (Optional)

    Preparation -

    1) Chop the Broccoli into tiny florets. Wash thoroughly

    2) Take some water in a pan, add little salt. The water shall be very little to cover the broccoli only. Add the Broccoli florets to it and let boil for 3 to 5 mins.

    By doing this you will get nicely cooked Broccoli with pleasant odour. You may discard water if you don’t like the smell. But better to use it as veg. stock as it will have some nutrition.

    Since cheese will have more salt, adding salt here will add taste to the broccoli and no need of adding salt anywhere else.

    3) If you like Broccoli you can use it directly into the soup, or can grind it roughly in a mixer

    4) Take a wide pan. Add butter into it. When it melts, add the crushed garlic. Fry for 2 seconds till the aroma goes.

    5) If you want to use Onion, you may add the chopped onions now and fry till translucent.

    6) Simmer the flame to low. Sprinkle the corn flour slowly and keep frying it with a ladle.

    7) No need of the corn flour to turn red and all. Slowly add the milk and ensure that no lump is being formed. Keep stirring.

    8) When the milk starts boiling, add the cheese pieces. The soup will start becoming like a thick paste kind of. Ensure that the entire thing is not getting burnt. Keep stirring.

    9) Now add the boiled broccoli florets/grounded paste into the cheese. Mix well. Let boil for just 2 minutes. But keep stirring to avoid getting burnt.

    If you think the soup is too thick, you may add milk or very little water. You may add the saved stock here. If water, add it little by little otherwise the thickness of the soup will get spoiled. This soup is a very rich thick soup.

    If you think the soup is very watery, you may add cheese. Otherwise mix 2 teaspoons of corn flour with little water in a separate cup. Let the corn flour dissolve in the water. Add this to the soup to get thickness.

    10) Turn off. Sprinkle freshly ground pepper and oregano. You may sprinkle some grated cheese over as decoration.

    11) Serve hot!

    Goes very good with crackers, krack jack biscuit or onion pakodas being accompanied with!

    Kids do not love Broccoli but for sure they love cheese. So this one will be a lip smacking soup for them.

    Please be careful as this may fill up your stomach rather than being an appetizer!

    Following this thread:):) After buying Vitamix I made soup once and my kids hated what I made. Hence, I closed the soup stall.

    Let me see this will help me from saving the looks of my DH which says " She was to die with out Vitamix and now since its sleeping in our kitchen she is breathing again "
