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.

How to Make Cream of Broccoli Soup

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.
