Marsha's Story

I usually end up quadrupling this recipe if I make for my soup loving grand kids. I use fresh broccoli and just microwave it for a few minutes before adding to soup.

I sometimes add shredded cheddar to make a Cheesy Cream of Broccoli Soup. Adapt to your family.

Ingredients

1 bunch
broccoli, cut into florets and blanched in microwave
6 Tbsp
butter

3 Tbsp
onion, chopped
5 Tbsp
all purpose flour
1/4 tsp
kosher salt
dash(es)
freshly ground black pepper
dash(es)
freshly grated nutmeg
2
milk
1 c
chicken broth

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cook onions in butter. Stir in flour, salt, pepper, nutmeg, milk and chicken broth. Cook until slightly thickened. Add broccoli and heat through.
2
I take my submersion blender at this point and blend until smooth. Reserve a little broccoli to serve as a garnish on top.
3
If adding cheese, do so after blending. Heat through being careful not to scorch.
