Tomato Broccoli Soup

Soups are always a comfort food during winter. It started snowing at my place and the temperature is as low as -10 deg C. There is nothing more comforting than a hot bowl of soup on a cold evening.

This is a winner recipe because my DH loved it and asked me for a second helping.

Serves: 2

1. Tomato - 2 medium sized
2. Broccoli - 1 cup florets
3. Onion - 1 small
4. Bay leaf - 1
5. Butter - 2 teaspoon
6. Salt and pepper for seasoning

1. Heat 2 teaspoon of butter in a saucepan and add the bay leaf.

2. Add roughly chopped onion, broccoli, tomatoes and 1 cup of water.

3. Cook until tomatoes turn soft.

4. Turn off the heat and allow the veggies to cool down.

5. Discard the bay leaf and blend the veggies in a blender.

6. Strain the puree and transfer into the same saucepan and cook for around 5 minutes.

7. Season with salt and pepper powder and serve hot.

Submitting this recipe to Priya's "Shh Cooking Secretly Challenge" event. Viji from Viruntu Unna Vaanga challenged me with two ingredients namely broccoli and tomatoes and I decided to make this Tomato Broccoli Soup.
