Comfort food – broccoli soup

When it gets cold and rainy outside this soup is my favourite comfort food. It’s a great and super quick recipe that I keep coming back to. It is also a very flexible recipe – add a carrot or a half of courgette, replace black pepper with chili…you see what I mean? :) Be creative and enjoy!
