Hi princess, I make broccoli soup a lot as it is one of DH's favourites I usually make mine with coriander for the herb so I was waiting to se if he would notice the change surprise, surprise, he did and put it equal with mine. I think he was just being diplomatic. I made it just the way the recipe said and with the addition of a blob of low fat creme fraiche for presentation. Thank you for a new slant on broccoli soup. Made for herb of the month.
This soup was wonderful. I used frozen broccoli and it still was excellent. After pureeing, I strained it back into the pot with the roux. Made the texture velvety. Thanks for this terrific recipe!
Really good! I'm going to share it with my facebook friends!
This is the broccoli soup recipe I always use, too. I also add 2 T. minced bell pepper with the butter and saute until tender before making the roux. This recipe is adaptable to many vegetables, and seasonings can be varied according to the vegetable used. And it's healthy, with the fresh vegetables, low sodium/low fat broth, and skim milk.
