Avocado & Broccoli Soup

          A power house of essential nutrients, Avocado and Broccoli makes for a good combination for a delicious and an interesting soup. The rich creamy texture from the avocado gives a smooth finish to this amazing one-pot meal.

          For a bit of a flavour I added some rosemary along with a wee bit of garam masala. This soup can be had as it is or in a pureed form, along with some bread sticks or croutons. It is a wholesome meal in itself and helps satiate your hunger for a long time.

           It can also be had along with some grilled lean meat or fish for a satisfying and a filling meal anytime of the day.

  • 1 avocado, chopped
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. butter
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 1 tsp. ginger, chopped
  • 1 tsp. garlic, chopped
  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • 2 1/2 cups stock
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper powder or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp. garam masala powder
  • 1 tbsp. lime juice or to taste
  • rosemary, chili flakes & pomegranate to garnish(opt)

          Heat oil and butter in a pan and saute the onion, ginger and garlic till light brown. Add the avocado, broccoli, salt, pepper powder, garam masala and rosemary. 

          Mix well and add the stock. Pressure cook for 2-3 whistles. When cool, blend it. Heat through and add the lime juice. 

          Give it a mix and serve, garnished with rosemary, red chili flakes and pomegranate pearls.
