Cooking video - Purple sprouting broccoli and potato soup

I tried something new and made a cooking video. It's not the most brilliant edit and not even my best recipe, but I thought it would be nice to introduce in a different visual way how I usually make my vegan soups. What do you think, should I make more of these in the future? That wouldn't be too often anyway as it's quite time consuming, but it is a great fun and I wish I could chop that quickly!

I have listed the ingredient amounts here in writing as well, but haven't written any further instructions. I hope that the video explains it mostly. You can variate the vegetable stock amount depending on how thick you want the soup to be. I initially added 500 ml, but added a little extra water later. Then just simmer until everything is cooked and the flavours blended nicely. This soup making method can be used for pretty much any vegetable combinations.


250 g purple sprouting broccoli
250 g small potatoes
2 onions
3 garlic cloves
500-700 ml vegetable stock
Salt, ground black pepper and sage to taste

Enjoy the video!

  1. Liking the video, very speedy :) I was half expecting at the end for you to lift up the mug and bring it to your face to reveal the cook behind the cooking hands, but no :( that is okay as I am quite shy behind the camera too. Liking the soup, time I made some.

    1. Thank you! I was considering of revealing myself, but wasn't quite ready yet, maybe I'm slowly working that way. At least the hands were already there! I thought that people wouldn't want to watch a very long video, so I had to speed it up quite a bit. :)

    2. Yeah, cooking can be a slow process so speeding it up was a smart move. Still I did enjoy it. Thank you.


Thanks for reading! I would very much appreciate any comments or suggestions from you.
