Spiced Broccoli Soup. Delicious with tomato scone or herb bread


Spiced broccoli soup is a delicious soup. Mildly spicy and creamy, a lovely cold weather lunch, filling, warming and tasty. It is exactly the same as the Spiced Parsnip Soup recipe on meal plan 4, except that I have swapped the parsnip for broccoli, and I sometimes use butter in place of the oil too. Whist enjoying the parsnip version, I thought that it would probably work for all kinds of different veg. So as I had a yellowing head of broccoli to use before it was unusable, broccoli was the first one I tried.

We serve the spiced parsnip soup on the meal plan with either herb bread or tomato scones. They would both go well with this version too
