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.
