Cream of Broccoli Soup. Simple, and scrumptious.

Wouldn't you know it, as I'm about to post last month my modem fried and we were offline for awhile. (and I went on Vacation).

Without further adieu...the easy cream of Broccoli soup I was about to post a few weeks back. 

I love Broccoli, and I actually don't like soup that much but this one...oh yeah!!!!


1 large potato
3 cups broccoli, cut up into smaller bits
1 shredded carrot
1 onion diced
4 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup cream (approx)
2 tbsp butter

In a large pot melt butter, add onions and saute until soft, add the chicken broth followed by all the vegetables.  Simmer for about 1/2hr -45 minutes until broccoli and potatos are soft.   Two options now.  Transfer the contents into a food processor or use a hand blender to puree the soup.   I use a hand blender (less mess!!).  Add the cream and simmer for another 1/2 hour or so.  Salt and pepper to taste.

Top with some shreded cheddar cheese or parmigean cheese and serve.
