Broccoli Soup

Its already May and its still cold and rainy :(  No sign of the spring yet :(  The cold and windy evenings kindle a need for warmth and happiness. Happiness is relative, bits of appreciation stuck to pieces of caring serve just right. So now to kindling some happiness i.e. get some appreciation :) 

 Broccoli soup  is one of my favourite mood lifters and I can hog it without being guilty of the calories.My little S enjoys this soup and I feel like a triumphant Mum feeding him vegetables.

What I use?
1 broccoli cut into small florets
2 Potatoes Peeled and and cubed
Cream as much as your conscious permits
Oil, 1 spoon.

How I cook it?
Boil 2/3 of the broccoli florets along with potatoes in water.
Cook the vegetables.
Once they are done using a blender blend to fine paste.
Adjust the consistency of the soup with water.
Add some cream. Salt and pepper.

Before serving
Heat a pan and add one spoon of oil add the 1/3 broccoli florets and stir on high flame until slightly brown and crisp. Add salt and pepper as per taste.

How I serve?
Pour the soup in a bowl and add the crisp broccoli just before serving.

The crispiness of the topped broccoli blends perfectly with the creaminess of the soup. Its almost a complete meal with some garlic bread on the side.
