"Creamed" soups, made without any cream or milk, are one of the easiest dishes to prepare. Adding a potato along with the vegetable of your choice adds the requisite creaminess that cream would otherwise provide. Consider this a master recipe and substitute cauliflower, squash, zucchini or another vegetable of your choice, for the broccoli. Adjust seasonings to your taste.
This recipe is from Mindfull Cookbook by Carol Greenwood, Daphna Rabinovitch, & Joanna Gryfe.

How to Make Cream of Broccoli Soup

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oil (or butter, if using), in a heavy soup pot over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, (and carrot, celery, ginger, zucchini, if using); cook, stirring, until softened, 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. Stir in curry powder, salt and pepper.
    Stir in broccoli and potato, stirring until well coated.
    Pour in stock and water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, covered, until vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes.

    In batches, transfer soup to a blender or food processor; puree until smooth. (You will have to transfer to a large bowl after it is pureed.)
    Return soup to pan on medium heat; add milk if using; stir to heat throughout. (Add more broth or water, if needed.) Serve.
