Did you see the episode with Broccoli Soup on Molto Mario?
This is a shot in the dark... but did anyone see the Molto Mario where he made a broccoli soup using almost just water and broccoli? I can't seem to find the recipe on Food Network and was wondering if anyone knew the gist. Were there more ingredients than broccoli, garlic, and water?
Thanks! I know I"ll be lucky if anyone responds to this....
just saw the episode today!
he basically boiled broccoli for ten minutes.
in a separate pot he sauteed sliced garlic till they just darkened with a hot pepper. he added the broccoli to the pot with day old bread, cubed. then enough of the cooking water yo cover. and. he seasoned it well and that's it!
I have made mine using water as the base (not chicken/beef stock), onions, a small garlic clove for just a hint of flavor, broccoli and cream and don't forget the cheese.
Some days I have made a rue to cut down on the cream but either way I just toss it all in the pot (without the cream and/or rue) let it cook until tender and finish with cream, rue and cheese. SO SIMPLE!
For a twist-
Bake potatoes in oven- remove potatoe from skin and add to soup when adding cream/cheese
or add croutons and top bowl with cheese and melt under broiler like it was french onion soup.
or add soup to casserole dish- top with puff pastry and bake in oven until pastry is browned. Bring to table and serve- impresses company!
