Chef Tips

  1. After blanching the broccoli and arugula in very hot water, refresh it under cold water, in order to retain the beautiful green colour of the Vegetables.
  2. You may add more water, to adjust the consistency.
  3. Do not prepare the soup covered as the soup will be of a pale green colour instead of a beautiful bright green colour.
