Optimise fresh products

You already know that we like to work with seasonal products and optimise produce, and the best part of this soup is that we only use the broccoli stems and cut offs. Less waste, same nutrients, maximum flavour and budget friendly, what’s not to like about that?

The recipe method is similar as when we make our white asparagus soup, using the part of the vegetable that usually ends up in the bin.
