Soup Recipe Tips:

  • Feel free to use the stalks of the broccoli too…they’re delicious! Just include them as part of the 5 heaping cups of chopped broccoli.
  • If you want chunks of broccoli in your soup, use a slotted spoon to remove about 1 cup (more if you like) of the broccoli and set it aside to add later.  If you don’t want chunks of broccoli, just puree the entire batch of soup.
  • I use an immersion blender to blend this soup, but you can use a stand blender too.
  • You can use fresh or frozen broccoli for this recipe.
  • I have cream listed as an ingredient, but you can use milk instead.
