    Default Cream of broccoli soup

    Cream of broccoli soup

    Recipe DescriptionPreparation Steps:
    If using fresh broccoli, chop into small florets and pieces.
    Level of Difficulty:
    Very easy
    Time Needed:
    ~950g bag of frozen broccoli OR large bundle of fresh broccoli
    ~1 cup cream
    ~1 cup milk
    ~1 cup water
    ~1-2 tablespoons of plain white flour to thicken
    ~Watercress to garnish (optional, I prefer without)
    3-4 adult portions
    Pour all liquid ingredients together in the largest pan you have, and whisk in the flour to make a milk-consistency sauce.

    Turn on the heat, and start to gently heat the mixture, stirring all the time. Add all the broccoli after a couple of minutes, turn up the heat until it reaches boiling point and starts to thicken. Turn down to simmer until the broccoli is tender, and soft enough to mash. Break up and mash the broccoli as much as possible with a fork.

    Leave until just cool, pour into a blender, and blend on slow for a couple of minutes or until you get a semi-smooth paste.

    Serve with buttered crusty rolls, hot from the oven.

    Delicious, simple, cheap AND full of folic acid so great for mothers-to-be/TTC.
