Easy broccoli soup

White tableware usually leaves me cold. Until it is showcasing a glorious vegetable! If you have virginal white soup bowls its worth making Broccoli Soup just to admire the fashion statement – oh and it’s healthy too.

Cream soup with dried crusts isolated on white, studio shot INGREDIENTS

3 large leeks, white parts only, sliced and rinsed

1 tsp thyme leaves

4 cups broccoli florets

4 1/2 cups vegetable stock

3 tbsp nutritional yeast

Salt and pepper

METHOD

Place leeks in a large saucepan and sauté over medium heat for 10 minutes. Add water 1 to 2 tbsp at a time to keep the leeks from sticking to the pan.
