Bonus recipe:

No cream of broccoli soup


  • 1 broccoli bunch (500 gr) plus the stalk of another (that was in the freezer from last week)
  • 1 leek
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 70 gr raw cashew nuts
  • 1 l water (more might be needed)
  • salt & pepper
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

Make it:

  1. Soak the cashew nuts in water for an hour to soften up (this will make it easier to blend later on). The cashew nuts provide creaminess to the soup.
  2. Rinse the leek, and chop. Mince the garlic. Heat up olive oil in a 3-4 l pot. Add the leek & garlic, and cook until soft and golden.
  3. Meanwhile, cut the broccoli in pieces. For the stalks, remove the outer layer (approx 5mm) that is a bit harder and leave only the heart, then cut in pieces.
  4. Add broccoli to the pot, cover with approx 1l water (it doesn’t need to be completely covered) and bring to a boil. Lower heat to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat. Drain the cashew nuts and add to the broccoli. Mix with immersion blender until creamy. Season with salt, pepper, cayenne & lemon juice to taste.
  6. Serve piping hot.
