Foodie Friday : The Ultimate Broccoli Soup

Im sorry we missed last weeks foodie friday but I promise we will make it up to you! This week Chef Simeon Hall is back and is graciously sharing one of his awesome recipes! Share your photos and comments with us if you give it a try! 

A broccoli soup you may say well this soup took me seven months to perfect. Sometimes for a chef 

being simple can be the toughest part of the equation. Here four ingredients make a simple yet 

complex flavoured soup that eats like you’ve slaved over a pot for hours. (Geared towards Kelly’s or 

the home cook)

Broccoli soup serves 4

Two bunches of fresh broccoli, sectioned into florets 

3 cups of distilled water 

Kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper 

2 dashes of Tabasco sauce 


Bring the water to a rolling boil. Add the sectioned broccoli and tightly cover for exactly four minutes*. 

While hot** use a blender and puree the broccoli with the water while hot .This creates the velvet 

smooth texture of the soup. Season to taste with salt and pepper and add Tabasco to brighten the 

flavours of the soup.

For a richer soup- add 2 oz unsalted butter and 2 oz of double heavy cream

*This process produces a broccoli stock that returns the flavor and nutrients to the soup

**Be careful when blending hot liquids. The steam created can explode. Replace the blender feeding cap with a dry cloth to allow steam to exit.
