Broccoli Soup

My nephew is in love with broccoli soup … i know  its rare to find a  kid (he is 3 years old).. who loves vegs .. but he really does .. he even takes a piece of garlic bread and eats it with it … its fun to just watch him eating … well anyway I made this soup today just for him … its simple and tasty … to make it you will need:

– 1.5 to 2 lb broccoli .. around 700 gms … separated into florets

– 1 liter chicken stock

– 2 tb onion, chopped

– 1 big garlic clove, minced

– 3 tb flour

– salt and pepper

– 3 tb butter

– 1/2 cup cream…. for healthier version u can use milk or sour cream

butter, onion, and garlic

Start by adding the butter .. once melted.. stir in the onions and cook until translucent …

Then add the garlic and stir until fragrant…

add flour

Add the flour .. and cook for one 1 min … no need for it to change color .. just cook it a little ..

add stock

Then add the chicken stock …

whisk till thick

Whisk it all together until slightly thickened …

add broccoli

Add the broccoli and cook until tender … around 10 to 15 mins ..

puree everything

Using a blender or a hand blender .. puree everything to the consistency u like (chunky or smooth) …

Add cream

Before serving … heat the broccoli soup .. then add the cream .. and bring it back to a boil …

Broccoli soup

And thats it …

Serve it with a side of garlic bread

Enjoy 🙂 …

    You also do such an incredible job of breaking the recipes down and photographing each step. You really need a book deal for your own cook book.
