Cream of Broccoli Soup

22 07 2019

I made this delicious broccoli soup for a group gathering and they could not get enough of it. This is the basic recipe. You can add grated cheddar into it if you want a richer taste. Also, I had some leftover sauteed spinach which I pureed with some of the stock and then added it into the soup. That made it a beautiful green color. 

Serves 4

Ingredients:

6 tbsp unsalted butter

1 small onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 cup flour

2 cups half and half

3 cups vegetable stock (I made a nice leek stock.)

2 bay leaves

1/4 tsp mace, ground

sea salt and black pepper, to taste

4 cups broccoli, cut into florets

1 large carrot, diced
