Prep time: 10 mins                             Cooking time: 20 mins                              Serves: 5

 

Ingredients:

 

  • 1 leek
  • 300 g broccoli
  • 475 ml water
  • 1 vegetable stock cube
  • 200g low fat cream cheese
  • 225ml light whipping cream
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • 125 ml fresh basil
  • 1 garlic clove, pressed
  • salt

 

Method:

 

  1. Rinse the leek thoroughly and chop finely, both the green and the white parts. Cut off the core of the broccoli and slice thinly. Divide the rest of the broccoli into smaller florets, and reserve.
  2. Place the leek and the sliced broccoli core in a pot and cover with water. Add stock cube. Season with salt, and bring to a boil for a few minutes on high heat until the broccoli stem is just easily pierced with a knife.
  3. Add the broccoli florets. Lower the heat and simmer for a few minutes, until the broccoli is bright green and tender. Add cream cheese, cream, freshly ground pepper, basil and garlic.
  4. Blend with an immersion blender until desired consistency.
  5. If the soup is too thick, thin it out with water. If you’d like it to have a slightly thicker consistency, add a touch of heavy cream.
