Soup of the week: Cream of broccoli and cauliflower

The cold has hit my two sons. What better and most comforting food than a soup. Especially if eating broccoli and cauliflower with some lentil is not the most appealing food for a 5 and a 7 years old child. :-) That way, no fight and no argument.IMG_1213

Soup is part of my weekly menu. Sometimes I don’t have time to make supper or simply that I don’t feel like doing it. Basically what you will need are the vegetables and water, it is a very low cost meal.

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes

  • 1 big organic yellow onion
  • 4 cups of organic broccoli
  • 4 cups of organic cauliflower
  • 1 small organic potato
  • 1/2 cup of organic red lentils
  • 3 tbsp. (45 ml) of nutritional yeast
  • 6 cups of water
  • Salt and pepper
  1. In a medium pot, heat some oil and stir in the onions for about 5 minutes.
  2. Add in the cauliflower, the broccoli, the lentils, the potato, the nutritional yeast, some salt and pepper.
  3. Put in the water one cup at the time until it starts to boil. Scrub the juices in the pot, that’s what will make your broth.
  4. Cook for an additional 15 minutes.
  5. Use a hand mixer to cream it.
  6. I served it with a piece of toasted bread that I rubbed with a garlic clove, then I spreaded some vegan butter on it.
