Make a tasty creamy broccoli soup with leftover stalks
Don’t throw any broccoli away! Broccoli is packed with carbohydrates, calcium, iron and lots of Group B vitamins, as well as vitamins K and A. And on top of that it’s very low in calories. So are you really going to throw any of this natural wonder away? You can use the stalks to make a lovely creamy soup: gently fry them with an onion, a clove of garlic and a dash of extra-virgin olive oil. When they’re soft, add some water and cook. When they’re ready, blend to create a creamy texture. If you like, you can add some single cream at the end.
