  • 350 g Broccoli
  • 500 ml Vegetable Stock Made up with water and a teaspoon of bouillon
  • 1 tablespoon Quark
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  1. Cut or break the broccoli into smallish florettes. You can use the stalk and any leaves, but cut any pieces of stalk down to about half the size of the broccoli florets
  2. Add the broccoli to the stock and cook on the hob at a gentle simmer till the broccoli is tender (this takes about 10 minutes)
  3. Blitz with a stick blender or in a liquidizer.
  4. Stir through the quark and heat gently, then add salt and pepper to taste

Recipe Notes

If you prefer a stronger broccoli flavour, then leave out the quark.
