Incredible Broccoli Soup Recipe
By Gordon Ramsay www.youtube.com/watch?v=hzJFnu_T4Us
Cook broccoli in VERY hot boiling water 4 to 4.5 minutes, no more.
Season water with salt before and after you put in broccoli
Drain and reserve cooking water
Put HOT broccoli into blender and add cooking water up to about half full. Be sure to hold the lid on tightly with a dish towel!
Blend until very smooth (hot broccoli blends much smoother than cold)
Taste; season again with salt if needed and blend again for a couple of seconds.
Slice goat cheese into ¼ inch rounds using a sharp knife dipped into the boiling water before each cut—set aside (he used “ash rolled goat cheese, very mature”)
Place a few walnuts in bowl with two slices of goat cheese on top. Season the cheese with a light sprinkle of fresh pepper. Pour soup on one side and let it flow around the walnut/cheese. Drizzle a pretty circle or swirl of olive oil on top around the cheese.
Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul
