Cauliflower and Broccoli Soup

Soups…comfort food! Easy to make and satisfying too (When u r not very hungry!!) I like chunky soups need something to bite into. The Pureed types, my friend, Biji calls it Ghost food!! So light that when you have them if you are really hungry, it’s just swoosh….like eating air!!!

So here is a recipe for a very nice and easy chunky veggie soup made from Cauliflower and broccoli. I am not exactly sure where I got this recipe from coz I had written it down long back, so my apologies for not mentioning the source.

This recipe serves only one hungry stomach.


• Cauliflower florets ¾ cup

• Broccoli cuts ¾ cups

• Chopped Onions ¼ cup

• Thinly sliced carrot ¼ cup

• Low fat milk 1 ½ cup

• Chicken bouillon granules ½ tsp { use veggie granules, to make it vegetarian}

• All purpose flour 2 tbsp

• Butter 2 tbsp

• Salt to taste

• Pepper according to your taste buds


• In a sauce pan melt the butter and add all the veggies and cook for 5 minutes stirring in between.

• Stir in 1 ¼ cup milk, chicken bouillon granules, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for another 5 minutes.

• Mix the flour and the remaining milk and add to the soup.

• Stir for another 2-3 minutes or until the soup starts to thicken.

• Remove from flame and serve!
