Cream of Broccoli, Sweet Potato, and Zucchini Soup

This is a lovely creamed soup, thick with veggies and flavor. It is something to serve company with a loaf of homemade bread and a salad. A country inn near us serves a soup similar to this, and has for years attracted people with it. This is the closest to it that I can get. Sometimes I think that this is better. I think the unique flavor is the cumin. It is delicious.

directions

  • Note before you start; the basil, tarragon, and cumin are added to taste--keep tasing till you get it the way you want it.
  • Break up the broccoli into flowerettes and simmer alone in another pan; set aside.
  • Cover the bottom of a large pot with butter and saute onions till golden, but not brown.
  • Add the sweet potato and zucchini.
  • Stir till veggies are hot and then cover with the chicken stock.
  • Put a colander down into the pot of liquid so that the liquid is up through the holes.
  • Measure the stock because this determines how much Creamora to put in (1 teaspoon of Creamora to 1 cup of liquid) and with a whisk, whisk in the Cremora.
  • Add the celery seed, nutmeg, basil, tarragon, cumin, salt and pepper.
  • Bring to a boil.
  • Add the Potato Buds to the colander whisking all the time till it is thick.
  • Then gently take out the colaner and stir. You can use more or less depending on the thickness that you like.
  • Add the cream for extra richness (or a small can of evaporated milk would also do).
  • Then add the broccoli using as much as you like.
  • Do not boil this soup.
