This broccoli soup with coconut milk was a staple once we had our studio in San Francisco’s Chinatown. On the time, the QUITOKEETO studio had no kitchen. It had a warhorse of a sink with two of the legs truncated, however that is about it. If we needed to increase our lunch choices to heat or scorching meals, home equipment wanted to be concerned. We had none, and this turned a favourite matter of dialogue. The query: for those who can solely have three home equipment, what are they?
A hotplate was the apparent first decide. A toaster oven and/or microwave additionally look like contenders. My argument towards each of these was we did not have both of these at house, so why would we now have them on the studio? I needed a wine fridge to inventory with rosé for the summer time and a espresso grinder. This can be a place that triggered a lot eye rolling. Jack voted that the waffle maker ought to dwell on the studio.
Whereas we found out equipment #2 and #3, a hotplate was bought and made its environment friendly and unsexy debut heating this easy, pureed broccoli soup with coconut milk from a perch atop a beer backyard bench. The soup – a easy broccoli and spinach affair – was made with coconut milk broth, double greens (broccoli & spinach) and was topped with good things like pan-fried tofu cubes, plenty of toasted almonds, and shredded scallions.
Broccoli Soup: Variation
For these of you who like choices, here is one thing to consider. Blended vs. unblended. I typically really feel that blended is the best way to go along with broccoli soup, particularly for those who’re planning on having fun with leftover. That stated, if you are going to serve the soup instantly, you possibly can play this soup totally in another way by leaving the broccoli florets entire and skip the mix. With the intense broccoli, and skinny, white coconut broth, merely douse every little thing with a very good quantity of lime juice, and the soup takes on a complete (equally scrumptious) completely different character. Go forward with the identical toppings: tofu, almonds and scallions. Perhaps a dose of one thing spicy? A chile crisp oil? Or little bit of sriracha? Get pleasure from! xoh
