Today I made cauliflower spinach cabbage and broccoli soup

I didn’t have much spinach so I used what was in the fridge and the cauliflower was about average size.

I really need to get myself a larger saucepan to cook my soups in because I just about managed to squash this all in.

This cauliflower, spinach, cabbage and broccoli soup made a litre and I was able to eat it over two days.

It was really filling, a little runnier than usual and I am not a huge fan of cauliflower but it was okay.

I used most of the cabbage – definitely all the darker leafy leaves on the outside.

Along with the above vegetables, which I just threw into a saucepan full of hot water. I added garlic. There wasn’t really much room for anything else.

In the water was salt and some mixed herbs plus cayenne pepper that I throw into all my soups.

The key to making soups is not to put everything in the blender. I put the cooked vegetables into the blender with a little water. I left most of the fluid in the saucepan.

Once I blended the veg I then poured it back into the saucepan with the water it cooked in.

If you just blend everything you end up with a thick consistency a little like baby food. Not my idea of a soup at all.
