Cheesy Broccoli Soup

Broccoli! It’s our all time favourite. And today, we are going to introduce a new way to enjoy this good food. By the way, if you are crazily in love with broccoli (Like bly), you ought to take note of this. Too much of broccoli will actually cause hyperoxaluria and also interfere in blood thinning medications. Well we guess moderation is the key word when it comes to food.

We tried different version of making broccoli soup and we found a perfect recipe for a rich and flavourful cheesy broccoli soup (We’re going to share with you!). Just by looking at the pictures, you can imagine sipping the mouthwatering flavours of the soup! Oh yes, it definitely satisfies a cheese lover’s cravings!

Ingredients: 1 organic broccoli, 1 onions, 1/3 block of butter, 1 cup milk, 1/4 cheddar cheese, 2 cups organic veg broth, 1 small carrots, 1/2 cup flour

1. Steam broccoli & carrots till soft and toss with olive oil and salt
2. Blend broccoli with veg broth
3. Melt butter and stir-fry onions then pour into blender
4. Melt butter and add flour to achieve roux base
5. Add milk and 1/4 block of cheese and stir to ensure a smooth creamy base
6. Pour in everything from blender
7. Stir and mix well
8. Thicken when necessary
9. Garnish with shredded cheese and a piece of broccoli

(Serves 2 pax)

We’ll be sure to make our own croutons to top with our hearty soups!

Spiced Carrot Soup

Another year to bid goodbye to my twenties. Well, I guess I have to confess that I’m in need of good food to fight that age! We are going organic as much as possible and stocking our fridge with vegetables and fruits. Right, we simply enjoy munching on a variety of colourful food.

We had grilled portobello mushrooms with cheddar cheese, baked salmon with brown sugar, spinach cucumber salad, corn and of course our soup!

Ingredients: Pureed Carrot, garlic, onion, apple, curry powder, milk, organic chicken stock, salt

After reading on the health benefits of garlic, we decided to use it generously in this soup. Garlic has the ability to slow down aging process and I admit this is one of the compelling reasons to why this soup is packed with these pungent bulbs. 🙂

I really love this soup and it tasted exactly like its name. I savored every sip and yes! I’ll be a loyal fan to pureed soup!

Potato Cheese Soup-To Ah Yang with Love

Ah Yang, this entry is dedicated to you!

We hope this is a recipe you can enjoy in Scotland and think of us! Lol.

We can imagine you enjoying this soup with a few slices of toasted bread while studying in your residence during one of the cold, cold European nights. Hoe suggested some Irish stout to make it a more complete experience. 🙂

Potatoes alone might be abit too bland. That’s why we added cheese and curry powder to excite the taste bud.

Ingredients: Potatoes, cheese, cauliflower, curry powder, milk, garlic, onion, salt, pepper, butter

We blended 1 large potato using our food blender and cut the other potato into small cubes to add into the soup. The soup feels much better when you have some potatoes to crunch on and enjoy.

In order to lower the total calorie count for this soup, we cheated by adding cauliflowers so as to replace some of the high carbohydrate potatoes.
