Chinese Broccoli Soup

We lucked out last week, while looking for spring roll wraps, and found this oriental grocery store where we not only got the wraps which were only 35 calories each, but also some really yummy greens. I was under the impression I was cooking greens until I compared my pictures online with a google search for Chinese greens and found that this was indeed Chinese broccoli – How cool is that? What is it they say about learning something new every day 😉

Simple Soup, takes less than 20 minutes to make
Chinese Broccoli Soup
Ingredients
2 bunches of Chinese broccoli (wash thoroughly and cut big)
2 sachets of dry milk powder (Use non-dairy powder if you are vegan)
2 green chilies
2 cloves of garlic
1 small cube of ginger
1 tbsp of crushed cashews (optional)
½ cup of grated coconut
1 tsp of olive oil
Salt to taste

Preparation
Really wash the greens very thoroughly and chop into fairly big pieces since it is to be ground anyway
Dry fry the coconut.
Then add the oil and the rest of the spices and brown a little.
Next add the greens and keep closed
In a vessel, empty the contents of the milk powder add the specified amount of water and mix.
When the greens soften, add the milk and allow the entire soup to cook for about 2-3 minutes
Blend to a smooth consistency and serve with warm bread.
I served it the my Four Flour Medley Masala Bread J
