It doesn’t happen often as I am quite good at using up Vegetables. However, today I found a head of Broccoli that was in an opaque plastic bag and it had turned yellow. I always cook this soup when I find Broccoli that turned yellow. This is a simple recipe but it is a great recipe to enjoy such Broccoli that is not so great anymore.


2 to 4 Servings


1 head Broccoli that turned yellow *cut into small florets
*Note: Stem can be used for the soup, but I used it for ‘Mock Zha Cai’

1 Onion *thinly sliced
2 cups Vegetable Stock OR Chicken Stock *OR 2 cups Water and 1 Stock Cube
1/2 cup Rolled Oats
1/2 cup Milk
Salt & White Pepper

  1. Place Broccoli and Onion in a large Saucepan OR Pot. Add Vegetable Stock (OR Chicken Stock), cover with a lid, and cook over medium low heat until soft.
  2. Use a stick Blender to blend until smooth. Add Rolled Oats and Milk, and bring back to the simmer, stirring frequently. Season with Salt & White Pepper. When the Oats are soft, the soup is done.
