Ingredients

  • 1 leek
  • 2 heads broccoli
  • 200 g cream cheese
  • 2 cups water
  • 50 g butter
  • Fresh basil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 cube vegetable stock
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Rinse the leek thoroughly and chop finely. Divide the rest of the broccoli into smaller florets. 
  • Place the leek and the sliced broccoli core in a pot and cover with water. Season with salt, and bring to a boil for a few minutes on high heat.
  • Add the florets and vegetable stock cube, lower the heat and simmer for a few minutes, until the broccoli is bright green and tender.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients. Blend with an immersion blender until desired consistency.
  • 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.
