cream of broccoli soup recipe

cream of broccoli soup recipe – continuing the series of soups, here is another creamy soup made with broccoli.

the soup recipe is similar to the cream of mushroom soup i had posted a few weeks back. the entire soup is made in one pot and thats how i prefer to cook my soups. everything cooked and simmered in one pot.

in this recipe i have not used cream. pureed broccoli along with milk, makes the soup smooth and creamy. but if you want, you can garnish the soup with some cream.

broccoli is not a much loved veggie in my house, so i prefer to disguise it in soups like these or in a mixed vegetable curry or pasta. this cream of broccoli soup can be served plain or with a toasted buttered bread or baguette.

no need to boil, just heat the milk.
when the soup mixture is still slightly hot or warm, using an immersion hand blender, blend the soup till smooth in the same sauce pan. you can also blend in a regular electric blender.

keep the soup pan on the stove top and begin to simmer on a low flame.
