Good Food Comes to Life: Cream of Broccoli Soup

November 2, 2011

Warm up with this delicious Cream of Broccoli Soup!

I couldn’t believe how quick and easy it was to make one of my favorite soups!  I added extra broccoli and a handful of shredded cheddar cheese.

1 head broccoli
1 onion, finely chopped
3–4 cups chicken stock
Knob of butter
Plain yogurt (or sour cream)
Salt and freshly-ground black pepper

  • Separate the broccoli florets from the stalks. Roughly chop the florets. Trim the ends from the stalks if they are dry, and chop the stalks into a fine dice.
  • In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Once the butter has melted and has started to froth, add the onion. Cook the onion until soft and translucent, 5–7 minutes.
  • Add about 3 cups of chicken stock and bring to a boil. Add the broccoli to the stock and simmer for 10 minutes, or until broccoli is soft. Depending on how large your head of broccoli is, and on how thick you like your soup, you can use more or less stock.
  • Use a blender to pureé the soup to your liking. If you have an immersion blender, you can purée the soup right in the pot! Season to taste with salt and fresh pepper.
  • Serve with a dollop of plain yogurt or sour cream and a squeeze of lemon.
