Serves: 1-2 people | Time: 25-30 minutes | Level: Easy 

Ingredients 

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes 
  • 1 garlic clove, minced 
  • 1x white onion 
  • 1x vegetable stock cube + 250ml just boiled water 
  • 200g broccoli florets (I also used the stalk to reduce waste) 
  • 100g kale (approx 2 large handfuls) 
  • 100ml plain yoghurt 
  • Salt & black pepper, to taste 

Method 

  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan, fry the garlic, onion and chilli flakes for 2-3 minutes or until soft. 
  2. Pour the vegetable stock into the pan and add the broccoli florets.
  3. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer gently for 8-10 minutes, until the broccoli is tender. Now add the kale, and cook for a further 2 minutes. 
  4. Season with salt and pepper, then transfer to a liquidiser/blender and whizz until smooth. Finish by adding the yoghurt, and blend for a further 10-12 seconds until everything is well combined.
