Simple to make and very tasty. Next time I'll try it without the cornflour. Lots of black pepper helped the flavour which was even better after a couple of days in the fridge. Well worth trying.
Low fat soup.

But swap the quantities for broccoli and cauliflower ( so more broccoli) and use a masher instead of a blender if you dont want gloop, but lovley textured tastey soup!

I used a leek instead of an onion and then I add a tablespoon of low fat phili or cream cheese to the cooked veg and stock before blending - no need for oil, cornflour or milk, yummy and still v low fat
How long does it stay in date?

I'm just wondering how long you could keep that refrigerated for? Thanks.
