Broccoli and Chicken Soup

IMG_5558

I hadn’t planned on blogging this recipe, but today my mind was changed.

A close friend has been unwell, really unwell. I had some soup in the freezer, I dropped it at her door. I would have liked to of cooked something fresh but time is seldom on my side and I wanted to help her now, not later. I received a text message, another batch was requested, she said it was all she felt like, that it was perfect, that she felt nourished. That was the moment I decided that your family may need this recipe too. Not because it is the most delicious soup I have had, nor because I cannot go a week without eating it, neither of these statements would be true. I am sharing this soup because it is incredibly simple and may be worth storing away for when you are unwell, or when your family needs nourishing, or when you want something quick and tasty.

It is delicious, it is simple, and it is one worth learning for the days when illness invades your house or the house of loved ones. I hope it leaves you feeling nourished.

Broccoli and Chicken Soup

2 heads of broccoli, steamed or roasted (I leave the stalks intact and use roughly 600 grams)

400 – 500 grams chicken thighs, cooked and roughly chopped

4 cups of hot stock

Place your stock and broccoli into your blender or food processor, blend until very well combined, add your chicken and pulse until finely shredded. Serve and enjoy!

In the picture above ours has been served with lemon and crushed macadamias.
