Cream of Broccoli Soup Recipe


Cream of Broccoli Soup

1 ½ lb. of broccoli

1 large stalk celery

1 medium onion

2 cups water

2 Tbsp. butter

2 Tbsp. flour

2 ½ cups Kitchen Basic chicken stock

½ cup milk or cream

Salt and pepper


Cut the broccoli into flowerets.  Chop the broccoli stem, celery and onion.

In a saucepan or steamer, boil the water and immediately add the broccoli stems, celery and onion.  Simmer for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, steam the broccoli florets, and then shock them in ice water.  Drain and set aside, covered.

In another saucepan, melt butter and whisk in the flour, stirring until it is smooth.  Take the saucepan off the heat and allow to cool slightly.  Whisk the chicken broth into the flour mixture.  Bring to a boil, stirring it for 1 minute.

Add all the vegetables except the steamed broccoli and bring to a boil.   Add the florets, and then remove from heat.  Stir in the milk (or cream).  Salt and pepper to taste.      6-8 servings
