Final Notes for the Vegetable Broccoli Soup Recipe
➡️ Vegetable soups are typical of Hungarian cuisine, as are the dumplings with flour and eggs which they often combine them. These homemade soups are cooked especially in summer when fresh vegetables are plentiful and people want to eat lighter foods because they need fewer calories than in winter.
➡️ Broccoli is not a typical vegetable of Hungarian gastronomy, although it has gained a lot in popularity in recent years. This soup is traditionally cooked with cauliflower (see below), but, being from the same family, I adapted it for broccoli. Both varieties of vegetable soup are particularly tasty and nutritious, so I highly recommend them during summer and beyond.
➡️ This vegetable soup recipe is very easy and therefore can be prepared by those who do not have much experience in cooking. In addition, it requires a few ingredients that are common to areas with temperate climates. The cooking time required is short, so this homemade vegetable soup is a perfect choice when you want to eat something simple and nutritious but you do not want to spend too much time in the kitchen.
➡️ As for the flour dumplings, they are typical of Hungarian cuisine and are added to various dishes, including soups, probably to give them more food consistency. However, I often use them, including for this soup.
➡️ A very important thing about flour dumplings is not to mix the soup as soon as you put the dough in the pot because the dumplings will break. To be perfect, you just have to wait for them to rise to the surface on their own, this is a sure sign that they are well-cooked.
➡️ At the end, I suggest you serve the soup with some sour cream placed on top of the plate. This is the typical Hungarian way of serving and I recommend you do the same because the cooked vegetables fit perfectly with it and also the sour cream offers a creamy consistency to the soup.
➡️ Let’s not forget that other vegetables can be added to this soup recipe, such as bell peppers, hot peppers, or onions, to name a few.
