Broccoli Soup

I’m constantly on the lookout for great soups to make, and this one definitely fits the bill. It’s a recipe from Canadian Living magazine.

I was very impressed with this broccoli soup. It is creamy and delicious, which, unlike in other soups, is not achieved by adding a lot of cream. There is just one tbsp of butter (I used margarine), and ~350mL of milk (it calls for evaporated skim milk, but I used regular 1.5%). The potato (I only used one medium-sized one) really adds to the texture as well. It even convinced H., normally a broccoli skeptic. Add a tiny bit of shredded cheddar on top as a treat, and it is even better!

    Yay! I am making broccoli soup today & was going to look for a not-full-of-cream recipe. I will be modifying yours to add cauliflower.

      You will not be disappointed! And cauliflower can definitely be added in very easily. Enjoy!
