Rich Broccoli Cream Soup
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Cook: 65 min.
Didn't use celery or onion. Used 4 cups chicken broth made in Instant Pot. Cooked 5 minutes in Instant pot. Took off lid and turned onto saute. Added half and half with corn starch slurry. Brought to boil. Stirred and done. Delicious.
Has anyone just used frozen broccoli instead of fresh?
Skipped the celery cornstarch and only used a 1/2 pint if that of the whipping cream. Didn't have time to saute so I used powder everything. I boiled water.. put in butter then added frozen broccoli that had been in the fridge so a soft freeze. Drained and blended in blender with chicken stock and 1/4 cup of broccoli water. Very good. Next time I will make it the way it says and see if I can get a 5 star.
The broth amount is correct, be sure to cover the pot on quite low heat during the broccoli cooking phase - if it's not covered, a lot of the liquid will cook off. I made this with two tweaks: added minced garlic and regular salt instead of garlic salt, and added crushed red pepper to the celery/onion. A great soup for those who prefer chunky instead of velvety, pureeed soups!
Loved it added Bacon bits
It seemed to lack something. I would probably add nutmeg or some chesse the next time I make it to kick it up a notch. I did bump up the chicken broth to about double the amount and it worked out fine. I also pureed the broccoli prior to adding the whipped cream. It is very rich.
The soup was really good ; good recipe
EXCELLENT FLAVOR. I substitute evaporated skim milk for the cream and some of the broth with no decrease in the delicious taste. My husband loves this soup and asks for it often. Changing the broccoli to a different veg makes delicious soup of any kind.
using potato flakes is pobably better and faster than adding 3 potatoes mashed. also, try cooking the broccli only 15 to 25 minutes and cut off the stems and cook longer. take this water cooked with the stemi and add to the soup instead of just water. The flavors are Better.....
