As odd as might sound to have a nut-based soup, it is delicious, creamy and totally refuelling. Plus, I love that it also includes some all-important greens in the form of the broccoli purée. Making a big batch of it is enough to refuel me at lunchtime and fill up all four kids in the evening.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 onions, chopped
4 large garlic cloves, chopped
1 teaspoons ground turmeric
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon ground cumin
170g cashews, soaked in water for 4–5 hours
500g sweetcorn
2 litres vegetable stock
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

For the broccoli almond purée

Quantity Ingredient
2 small heads broccoli, cut into florets
60ml almond milk, plus extra if needed
2 tablespoons olive oil

Method

  1. For the purée, bring a large saucepan of water to the boil and blanch the broccoli for 2–3 minutes. Strain the water from the broccoli and run cool water over the florets. Put the blanched broccoli, almond milk and olive oil in a blender or food processor and blitz until smooth. Add more almond milk as needed. Put to one side.
  2. Heat a large soup pot over a medium heat and melt the coconut oil. Add the onions and garlic and fry for 5 minutes. Add the turmeric, paprika and cumin, stirring well to coat the onion and garlic. Add the soaked cashews, sweetcorn and vegetable stock and bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 1 hour.
  3. Use a hand-held blender (or a blender or food processor) to blend the soup until it is smooth, then season to taste. Pour into bowls and garnish with the broccoli almond purée.

Note

  • Cholesterol-free cashews are particularly rich in magnesium, which, just like calcium, is necessary for strong bones.
