Gather the Ingredients.
To get started, you'll need the following ingredients: 1 head of broccoli (about 4 cups of florets), 2 cups vegetable or chicken broth, & 2/3 cup broken linguine noodles. Optional garnishes include freshly grated Parmesan cheese and a splash of cream. Have these items on hand before you start cooking to ensure that your soup turns out perfectly.
Prepare the Broccoli and Saute the Onions.
Begin by chopping the broccoli into small florets. This step should take about 5 minutes. Once you have the florets chopped, add them to a large saucepan along with the vegetable or chicken broth. Bring to a boil and let simmer for 10-15 minutes, until the broccoli is tender. While the broccoli is cooking, start preparing your onions by heating olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and saute for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened and lightly browned. When ready, remove from heat and set aside for later use in the soup.
Simmer the Soup and Cook the Linguini.
Once the broccoli is cooked, add in the sautéed onions and tomato paste and stir to combine. Bring your soup back up to a simmer and let cook for another 10-15 minutes. While waiting for the soup to finish simmering, take a pot of water and add broken pieces of linguini. Depending on the amount of pasta you’re using, cook time can range from 5-10 minutes. As always, taste test to make sure it’s firmly al dente before straining it and adding it into the finished soup.
Puree the Broccoli Soups and Assemble the Dish.
Grab your trusty immersion blender and blitz the broccoli soups until it’s creamy and smooth. After it has been blended to the desired consistency, transfer the mixture to a big bowl. Once your linguini has finished cooking, strain it in a colander or strainer, then add into the soup bowl. Garnish with freshly minced parsley and red chili flakes before serving warm. Enjoy!
