How to make a brilliant broccoli soup

Here’s a fun fact to season your small talk with: Broccoli has as much Vitamin C as an orange! One cup of broccoli covers your entire Vitamin C requirements for the day. Combine that with cinnamon, which has a reputation as a 'fat killer' and no recipe offers more soupy power.

Using the Carrera blender, it is so simple to make this soup - simply chuck all the ingredients into the blender, flick the dial, tap the go button and let the magic begin. Just enough time to butter yourself some fresh bread and find a bowl and spoon. Wonderful food, wonderful living.
