Prawn & Broccoli Soup

Carole's Chatter: Prawn & Broccoli Soup

I had a head of broccoli, some cream and frozen cooked prawns.  So a soup it was.

Onions – mix of red and brown
Crispy shallots
Seasonings – salt,pepper, cayenne pepper
Pickle juice
Medium potato (floury)
½ head of broccoli
½ cup of cream
1 tblsp sour cream
Chicken Stock – concentrate plus water


Dice your onions and saute on a low heat with olive oil.
When soft add your sliced leek.
Season with salt, pepper and cayenne pepper.

Steam your broccoli and potato.  Add the cream and sour cream and whizz together with a stick blender.  The result will be quite thick.

Add the mixture to your pot along with the chicken stock concentrate and some boiling water – add until you are happy with the consistency of the soup.

Add a splash of pickle juice.

Thaw about 6 prawns and then add to the soup right at the end along with some chopped basil.


  1. This would be lovely chilled for our gathering heat wave.

  2. Love prawns! And love broccoli, so the two together...yummo!

  3. I always love how you do your pantry cooking. This looks perfect for fall.

  4. You come up with wonderful meals from your pantry inspiration.
