The cold breeze of this evening is definitely a call for a warm rich soup that would spread love and happiness both in your tummy and among its tasters. As a child I always loved the look of the broccoli vegetable but sadly not its taste at the time, so I would always want it there to beautify my plate (food designer at a young age) yet did not really enjoy it much. Later on in life you realize that there are absolutely beautiful flavors that you can tackle to get the most of this pretty sort of “flower”.
To make this heartwarming soup you need:
– 2 Tbsp Butter
– 1 Onion (Chopped Fine)
– 2 Celery Sticks (Chopped Fine) (Optional)
– 3 Cups Of Chicken Stock
– 8 Cups Of Broccoli Florets
– 3 Tsp Butter
– 3 Tbsp Flour
– 2 Cups Milk (You can also use cream)
– Salt & Pepper To Season
We melt the butter in a medium sized pan adding the onions and celery to saute lightly, then we add our broccoli followed by the chicken stock to boil till they cook. We take the green full of aroma mixture to blend either in the pot itself with a hand held mixer or pouring it into the separate mixer to get your creamy texture going. Blend 1 cup of milk with the flour and butter over low heat, then pour it in with the soup and add as much milk as you would like to make the soup as creamy as you want and get it thickened.
Enjoy this with toasted bread and butter and let your load of the day work melt away.
Warm Loving Wishes To All
