Cream of Broccoli Soup

on January 2, 2015

Cream of Broccoli Soup is always good on a cold winter’s night. This recipe is one that’s very easy and very good. There aren’t many recipes cut out of the paper that made it into Grandma’s file, so you know it’s good! Some of my other broccoli soup recipes have cheese in them, and they end up being a bit salty. Even though this one has cream in it, it seems lighter (in a weird way) because there’s no cheese in it. We’ve been cooking and baking our way through the last few weeks, and we need meals that don’t take too much fuss or work to make. This one fits the bill.

Cream of Broccoli Soup

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Cream of Broccoli Soup

Saute in 1/2 cup butter:

1/2 small onion, diced

1 10 ounce bag of frozen broccoli pieces (I had a 12.5 ounce bag and just used the whole thing)

1/2 small carrot, finely diced (optional)

Add:

1/4 cup flour

Cook for 3-4 minutes.

Add:

1 quart chicken stock

(I would let it come to a boil and turn off heat before adding cream.)

1 cup cream (I used half-n-half)

salt and pepper to taste

1 clove garlic, minced

016

Saute the vegetables in butter first.

019

Then add the flour to make the soup thicker.

This is so fast that it comes together in about 10 minutes.

This soup is delicious.

Try this Cream of Broccoli soup. It’s so easy, it will give you a break in the cooking department. Nice and warm on a cold winter’s night! Mmmm.
