    Has anyone experimented with this? I thought the flavour was pretty good, but the texture was a bit odd. Kind of a bit grainy still. Is this how it is supposed to be, or should I have cooked it for a bit longer or pulverised it more?? Heidemarie

    15 minutes should really be long enough to cook your brocolli. I would suggest you blend for longer, to be honest I blend all of my soups for at least 1 minute sometimes longer. You’ll find there is a substantial difference in the texture. If you have some left I would return it to the bowl and blend for longer to see what difference that makes.

    I have just tried this and I agree that it needs longer cooking.
    Another 10 minutes and then a little blending has made all the difference.
    Cheers, Aggie.
