by Sascha Weber - Head Chef at the Ayurveda Parkschlösschen
During the cold winter, heat your body with this delicious soup - exclusive from Ayurveda Parkschlösschen's head chef.
For 4 servings you will need:
- 1-2 heads of broccoli
- 1 medium onion
- ¼ celeriac
- 1 apple
- 300 ml coconut milk or 150 gr creamed coconut or 60 gr powdered coconut
- approx. 1-1,5 liters hearty vegetable stock (optionally made from stock powder or cube)
- 1 tsp cumin (cumin seed)
- 1 tsp yellow mustard seed
- 1 tsp anise
- ground coriander
- lime juice
- brown sugar
Cut the broccoli, onion and celeriac into small pieces.
Peel, core and mince the apple. Set aside.
Heat the ghee over medium heat in a large saucepan. Add the cumin, anise and mustard seed and stir-fry gently until the mustard seeds begins to pop. Now add in the vegetables and coriander and sauté for 2 minutes.
Next add the vegetable stock and the coconut. Bring to a boil and leave to simmer for 20 minutes.
When the vegetables are cooked through, puree the soup until you have reached a very fine and smooth consistency. You may want to add more stock if the soup is too thick.
Season with salt, pepper, lime juice and a little bit of brown sugar. Stir in the diced apple and serve.
