Well the winter surely hit in the last few days, so cold in Ireland isn't it? I usually have mulled wine, cider or apple juice nearer to Christmas but caved in over the weekend. Whether it does or not I convinced myself that it warms me up. mugful but it is certainly not like the sweeter versions that are my norm. Hope you like it.
During the Holiday season: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas we're all going to be very busy buying presents, goodies and what not. It's easy to forget about, or only see a guest or family member on a restrictive diet as a nuisance or a weight bearing down heavily on you to sort out. Here's a quick and easy one to have at the ready which is easy to adjust depending on dietary needs.
Do you prefer making a soup out of broccoli than having it as a side vegetable, or is it just me? I do as you can add so many wonderful vegetables and nuts to it for a more interesting flavour.
Having it as a side vegetable, unless smothered in a 'creamy' sauce, just doesn't really light my fire. Since I know it's so healthy for me I try to eat it regularly so when I'm in a hurry I tend to just make up this easy soup below. Also as a snack afterwards I chew on a roasted walnuts with the cuppa of herbal tea.
