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

cream of broccoli soup recipe

the cream of broccoli soup recipe is similar to the mushroom soupΒ 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.Β this cream of broccoli soup can be served plain or with a toasted buttered bread or baguette.
