This soup is really light and creamy in texture, that too with very little calories. Addition of broccoli neutralises the strong flavour of leek as well as gives creaminess and appealing colour without adding any fat.
This is a lovely option to have when it is cold outside. With a slice of garlic bread or whole wheat bread or with lots of croutons this can be a delicious, nutrient filled meal.
First we will see how to prepare this soup:
Leeks- 2 to 3 (white and green parts are chopped and tops can be used in stock)
Broccoli – 1 medium head.
Toasted Pine nuts- ¼ to ½ cup (you can use any nuts of your choice)
Vegetable stock – 4 cups
Butter – 1 tsp
Turmeric- ½ tsp.
Red chilli flakes
