Garlic                                  1 clove, chopped

Leek/spring onion        100gms, chopped

Vegetable Stock*           3 cups

Butter                                 1 tbsp

Grated cheese                2tbsp

Salt & Pepper to taste

Optional toppings

Sliced/grated Parmesan, Chilli Flakes, Parsley, Roasted Garlic


  1. Start with heating the butter in a large saucepan.
  2. Once hot, add in the chopped leek and garlic and saute for a minute until fragrant. Add in the chopped broccoli and saute for 1-2mins.
  3. Add your prepared stock to the saucepan and bring it to a boil. Reduce to low heat and leave the pot covered on a simmer, till the broccoli is cooked through – 15mins. (Alternatively, you can also prepare the soup in a pressure cooker – follow steps 1 & 2 in your cooker and then add in the stock. Bring it to one whistle and cook it on slow for 5mins after.)
  4. Remove the pot from the heat and let the soup cool down a bit, before blending it to a smooth consistency.
  5. Once pureed, return the soup to heat. Add in the milk, mustard powder, grated cheese and salt and pepper.
  6. Bring it to a boil. Taste test and adjust the seasonings if required.
  7. Remove from the heat and garnish with your desired toppings.
