I make this Creamy Broccoli Soup for our Christmas Dinner.This is my first time making this type of creamy soup.I used chicken broth in can as the soup base and fresh broccoli to make this creamy soup.Hubby loves this soup,said it's the best soup he had ..I guess maybe I fried the garlic first and used half and half to make this soup more interesting.If you're up to challenge for creamy broccoli soup,maybe you can try this creamy recipe that hubby keep praising..
2 heads fresh broccoli,cut florets and steamed or microwave until soft
1 cup half and half or light cream
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup water
3-4 cloves garlic,peeled and minced
1 tbsp ground black pepper
2 tbsp butter
salt to taste
1:Prepare a medium stock pot at medium heat with garlic and butter.Use a spatula to stir the garlic for
30 seconds,then pour in chicken stock.
2:Meanwhile use food processor or blender with 1 cup water to crush or blend the cooked broccoli.Pour blended broccoli into the stock pot.When the soup is rolling boil,add in ground pepper,salt and half and half or cream into the soup.
3:Check the seasoning.When the soup is bubbly boil,remove from heat.4:Serve warm.
