Gordon Ramsay's Broccoli Soup
Apparently this is Gordon Ramsay's Broccoli Soup recipe..... I don't know - I have my doubts. I searched for broccoli on some program on my iPhone and it came up with this:
to taste, water (I've never seen this before!)
to taste, salt
to taste, pepper
2 heads broccoli
to taste, olive oil (optional) for garnish
Cut the florets off the heads of broccoli. Cut the stems into similarly sized pieces. Add all broccoli into a pot of rapidly boiling water (2tbsp salt in 5 quarts water). (that is a disgusting amount of salt)
Using a slotted spoon, put the cooked broccoli pieces into blender. Fill blender about half way with cooking water. Blend. Add more liquid if necessary for desired consistency. Check seasonings.
If desired (I did this to Jason's soup only), add goat cheese or cheddar to the bottom of bowl before serving. Serve drizzled with olive oil if desired.
MY REVIEW: Although it was my favorite color, this was gross. It tasted like water.... I don't like to add lots of salt to anything though so I guess it's my own fault. It was pretty much zero calories so I would probably eat it again because I'm weird like that. As for being Gordan Ramsay's recipe.... I don't think so. I would do some research but I just got home from Boot Camp and have 0% energy.
JASON'S REVIEW: The broccoli soup had a surprising zip and the cheese really smoothed it out. (??)
I guess Jason liked it.
So moral of the story, don't torture yourself and try to eat this without cheese!
