How to Make Cream Of Broccoli Soup

Step-by-Step

  1. Bring the water to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium heat; dissolve the bouillon cube in the boiling water.
  2. Add the broccoli and cook for 5 to 6 minutes, until it is bright green and fork tender.
  3. Put the evaporated milk in a small saucepan; warm over low heat, just until bubbles begin to form around the edge.
  4. Remove the pan from the heat.
  5. Preheat a large, heavy saucepan over medium heat for about 1 minute; spray it twice with the vegetable oil.
  6. Add the leeks and saute, stirring often, for 7 to 8 minutes, until limp.
