1 cup broccoli
1 cup cauliflower
1 cup carrots
1 cup zucchini (which will be the basis for the creamy structure of this soup)
according to your taste: sea salt, ground black pepper

2 Step – Put 1 liter water in the pot and add the carrots and zucchini (the zucchini should be cut into larger pieces), bring to a boil, cover with lid and reduce heat to simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the vegetables are do soften.
3 Step – Remove pot from the heat and remove pieces from zucchini, carefully because they are hot. Then put them in a suitable pot, and with help of a hand blender you will get a mixture like puree. This will be the basis for the creamy structure of this soup. After that we return this mixture into the pot again, where they is cooked before.

Advice: This creamy soup is easy to prepare, but you need to be careful if you cooked broccoli more than necessary. In that case, they will change the color and taste. Therefore, it’s better to be a little raw, than overcooked.
