Roasted Broccoli Sumac Soup

As steamed broccoli can get boring try this delicious & easy roasted broccoli soup with a generous sprinkling of sumac. I like to use Sumac for this red berry is high in antioxidants with a zesty flavour. Roast all the vegetables in the oven on a low heat until soft and caught a little round the edges. I added watercress for it quite simply is the best green to eat for a wealth of nutrients but also for its deep slightly peppery taste. Also I am a huge fan of basil and to up the beta-carotenoids in this soup I put a few leaves in, this also pairs very nicely with sumac. Then simply add boiled water and blend. This can be either blended in a high speed blender for a smooth creamy texture or with a hand-held blender until smooth.
