2 cloves garlic, chopped

1 large head of broccoli, cut and also use the stem

2 tomatoes, diced

In a large pot heat the olive oil and sauté the garlic, ginger and onion for 2-3 minutes.

Mix in the cumin powder, turmeric and black pepper and sauté for about a minute. Then add in all the other ingredients and bring to a boil.

Next cover with lid, lower the heat and let it simmer for 25-30 minutes. If it is too thick, add some water to get the consistency you desire.  Then blend the soup until smooth.
