Since im not regular at blogging now, last week in my group I had asked If any one would be interested to do guest post!! I got such positive answers from +Shazia Wahid  and +MonuTeena RecipesPassion I really appreciate their ready help towards guest posting!! Thank u so much dearies!! Love u <3

Lets see what shazia has to share with us today!!!

Excited!!! After almost 10 months of food blogging - I am writing my first guest post…for a special foodie friend - Aara - we started following each other’s kitchen escapades through other Facebook Groups and quickly became friends often chatting about this, that and everything under the sun.

A little bit about my space in the blogosphere - Cutchi Kitchen - I started this blog as my entire family - not just me are core foodies - we love food - talking about it, making it and tasting it and eventually adapting it and coming up with something else - this little space has become home to a lot of my family’s tried and tested recipes. I wanted a space to collect all my family’s traditional recipes as well as modern ones not just for us - but even for the younger generation - so that these jewels do not get lost over time.
A few weeks ago - we talked about healthy soups - so I decided to choose a soup recipe for the guest post.
So here goes the recipe - I do hope you enjoy the recipe and making it as well…

Cream of Broccoli Soup
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Serves 4


Broccoli Florets - 3 cups (fresh or frozen)
Onion - 1 (finely sliced)
Oil - 1 teaspoon
Garlic - 2 cloves (finely chopped)
Chilli Flakes - 1/4 teaspoon (optional)
Vegetable Stock - 1 litre
Salt and pepper to taste
Milk - 1 cup
Fresh Cream - 4 teaspoon (for garnishing)


1. Heat oil in a pressure cooker or a saucepan. Add the sliced onions and saute till they begin to soften. 
2. Add chopped garlic and continue to saute. Add chilli flakes - if using.
3. Add the broccoli florets and stir fry for about a minute. Pour the vegetable stock and let it simmer. Cover and let it cook for about 10 to 12 minutes - if in a saucepan - check after 12 minutes if the broccoli is completely cooked.
4. Remove from heat and let it cool slightly before blending till smooth. 
5. Once blended - return back to heat and add milk. Bring it to boil and adjust seasoning. Serve hot with slices of Focaccia Caprese or any flavoured bread.

Tips and Tricks:

To make a basic vegetable stock, saute a sliced onion, sliced carrot, spring onions, black peppercorns and add water.
Let it cook till the vegetables are soft. Strain and use the liquid in the soup.
If you are using stock cubes - follow instructions on the packet and be careful when adding salt as they already contain salt.       
Substitute cream for milk to make the soup richer and creamier.
