DIRECTIONS

  • Boil broccoli in water until it is tender, about 10 minutes.
  • Melt butter in a soup pot. Whisk in flour to create a roux.
  • To prepare soup base, gradually whisk in hot water, taken from the boiled broccoli to the roux. This will determine the thickness of the soup. For a thinner soup, add more water.
  • In blender, blend broccoli with cream, until mixture is smooth. Add cream slowly as you may not need more or less than one cup. Add to soup base.
  • Season to taste with chicken base and pepper.
