Roasted Broccoli and Garlic Soup

Yesterday, we were flying kites and throwing off our jackets. 

Now it looks like this again. 

Same place. Same time of day. 

So, as I watch the snowflakes come down outside, and the ice soaks up all the heat that the ground managed to store from yesterday's sun, I'm making soup. 

Broccoli soup. So we start with broccoli. 

Rinsed and sliced. 
(Should have chopped these up a little more, to make for easier blending.)

Now onions! Two of them. 
And the pot, of course. 

All in with olive oil.

Now garlic. 

wrapped, and in the oven at 400C in the same pot. 

Broccoli and onions roasted, and then covered with broth. Chicken, this time, but any sort will do.

Garlic unwrapped

and peeled. 


Into the pot with cumin, chili flakes, and a squeeze of lemon juice, and simmered for twenty minutes. Then blended. Salt to taste. 

Almonds and manchego on top.
