Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Servings 3 small bowls
- ½ carrot peeled and chopped
- ½ sweet potato peeled and chopped
- 1 leek diced
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- ½ cup broccoli florets
- 1 chicken fillet (about 125 grams), cut into small cubes
- 650 mls low sodium chicken stock or water
- 8 coriander sprigs
Peel and dice your carrot and sweet potato. Cut your broccoli into small florets and finely chop the white part of your leek.
Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a medium sized saucepan on a low heat.
Add in your chopped leek, carrot and sweet potato pieces. Let them sweat for 5 minutes.
Then add in your broccoli florets, chicken pieces, and your low sodium chicken stock or water.
Bring to the boil and simmer for 20 minutes. If necessary top up with water to keep the right consistency.
You can either serve it as is, with small soft chunks. Or you can blend it into a smooth and creamy soup, using a handheld blender or a mixer. The chicken pieces may need to be shredded a little for young babies.
Sprinkle with coriander and serve while warm.
