Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200oC/Fan 180oC.
  2. Place a medium-sized saucepan over a medium heat and add in the oil and coconut. Allow to brown lightly for a few moments, then add the ginger, garlic, spring onions, mushrooms, both chillies, white pepper (if using), and mix well.
  3. Cook until the spring onions begin to soften, about 5–6 minutes, then add in the coconut milk. Fill the coconut can to the top with water and add that into the pan. Stir well to make sure nothing is stuck to the bottom of the pan and simmer on a low heat for 20 minutes.
  4. In the meantime, chop the broccoli into large florets and place them into a mixing bowl. Drizzle over the maple syrup and oil and season to taste. Then tip them onto a baking tray and bake in the centre of the oven for 20 minutes until tender and cooked through.
  5. To serve, ladle the soup into bowls, place the broccoli on top, and enjoy.

If you want to boost the energy content of the dish you can use full-fat coconut milk. You can also serve over jasmine rice, or for added fibre try brown rice.

To increase the protein content you could add some tofu or leftover roast chicken.
