Straightforward Broccoli Soup

Tonight I supplemented our grilled-chicken-sandwiches-and-a-salad supper with a big pot of broccoli soup. It was very easy to make, delicious, and full of vegetables, so what's not to love?

In a large pot, saute:

1 chopped onion
3 cloves minced garlic


3 T. olive oil

til onion is transparent.


6-8 cups chicken broth (I used two boxes of storebought)
2 large bunches of broccoli, broken into large pieces
2-4 potatoes, scrubbed and coarsely chopped.

Cover and simmer until all vegetables are very tender, about 40 minutes.

In batches, whirl in blender or food processor until smooth. Return to pot and season with salt and lots of pepper. If desired, stir in:

1 c. heavy cream

and heat but do not boil. This is a very soothing soup, and good for girls who have recently gotten braces.

That sounds delish. I think I will make that next week sometime. I still have yet to make those schoolhouse brownies. :)

Thanks for the recipe. This was very helpful as it uses items I have on hand but had not thought to put together to fill out this week's meal plan.

Sounds so easy, and I love cream of broccoli soup!

Making this so-good soup once again, sans cream. We all love it! Thank you for this recipe, Anna.
