Cream of Broccoli and Cauliflower Soup

    40 minutes

    Absolutely delicious. Broccoli soup is my boyfriend's favourite, and this is a modification of his recipe. For the original substitute the head of cauliflower for another head of broccoli, add an extra cup of stock and omit the parsely.

    Used different ingredients. Being allergic to dairy, I swapped the cream for coconut cream and it worked beautifully! A simple swap made this allergy-friendly for me.  -  10 Sep 2010
