broccoli tahini soup

I usually make this soup with coconut milk but as I run out of coconut milk – and I have no idea how this happened to me – I thought to use some tahini butter instead. First time I had a similar soup by my friend and amazing cook Nina. She had created a really nice and light broccoli soup by just boiling broccoli. Then she blended it, seasoned it and served it warm with a bit of olive oil and un-cheesy sauce! God it was soooo good! So I recreated it (it was so simple anyway) and replaced the un-cheesy sauce with what else… Coconut Milk! And now I run out of coconut milk but tahini came to rescue 🙂 !

Boil the broccoli for 5-7 minutes in the vegetable broth. Use an immersion blender to puree the soup. Add the tahini and season with salt and fresh pepper. Blend again, serve warm and drizzle a bit of olive oil.
