BC: What is your favorite color? KM: Black.
When we were in Sicily, after every dinner, they always brought bottles of aperitif to the table. They were different flavors like lemoncello, fennel, and bay leaf… plus others but those were the main ones. We were fascinated by these, especially the fennel and bay leaf.
Over the last three weeks, we have been making our own. It is very easy and pretty nice. Recipes are easy to find on the internet. The main issue we had is plain alcool is no longer available in Canada. We found out if you take an inexpensive vodka and run it through a Brita filter a few times, you basically get the same thing.
- Head of Fresh Broccoli (or 1 bag of frozen broccoli)
- 1 16 oz. package of Silken Tofu (firm works too if you already have it)
- 1 tablespoon of Garlic Powder
- 2 teaspoons of smoked salt (or Liquid Smoke, not sure on amount for this)
- Pepper to taste
Cut and steam broccoli for 10-15 minutes until soft. Drain and blend broccoli and tofu together with an immersion blender until you get the desired consistency. If you would like it a little thicker, add a teaspoon of cornstarch or flour and mix.
Add salt and pepper to taste, let the soup simmer for another 10 minutes. Serve hot and enjoy!

This is an easy recipe you can make ahead and enjoy it for a week! I’ve made this without a food processor before and the taste was still good, it was just a little chunkier – as expected.
