    Serves: 4 

    • 1 tablespoon butter
    • 4 leeks, chopped
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
    • 2 heads fresh broccoli, chopped
    • 4 cups (1 litre) reduced salt chicken stock
    • 375ml tin fat-free evaporated milk

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Melt butter in a large pot and cook the leeks over medium heat until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in salt, pepper and coriander. Reserve about 1/4 cup of small broccoli florets and cook the rest of the broccoli with the leeks until the broccoli is bright green, about 5 more minutes. Pour in the chicken stock, bring the soup to a boil, cover then simmer until the broccoli is very tender, 10 to 15 minutes.
    2. Pour the soup into a blender filling no more than halfway full. Hold down the lid of the blender with a folded kitchen towel and carefully start the blender, using a few quick pulses to get the soup moving before leaving it on to puree. Puree in batches until smooth and pour into a clean pot. Alternately, you can use a stick blender and puree the soup right in the cooking pot.
    3. Return the blended soup to the pot, stir in the reserved broccoli florets and bring to a simmer over medium-low heat, stirring often. Simmer until the broccoli florets are tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat and mix in the condensed milk. Serve hot.

    Delicious. I didn't use any coriander because I didn't have any and it still tastes fantastic. A great way to use up my slightly too overgrown broccoli.  -  14 Sep 2015


    Just made this for lunch...Yum Yum. Swapped condensed for Soy cooking milk (Carnation also)  -  08 Aug 2011


    I kept to the recipe EXCEPT I did not add the coriander. I did not add the whole amount of evaporated milk, I just added enough until it looked creamy to me. The evaporated milk I did use was fat free. Very good, very simple. It fools you into thinking you're having something so decadent and fat laden. I think the one thing I'm missing is garlic but I think I'd add garlic to breakfast cereal if I could.  -  30 Jan 2012  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
