DIRECTIONS

  • In a large pot, combine broccoli, onion, garlic, broth (I used vegetable broth) or water, and salt.
  • Cover pot, bring to a boil, and then simmer for about 15 minutes, or until everything starts getting soft.
  • Use a ladle to transfer 2/3 of the soup into a blender.
  • Blend the soup until smooth. (I just used my immersion blender until I was happy with the texture.)
  • Pour back into saucepan and turn on heat to medium setting.
  • In a small bowl, combine milk with flour and whisk together until smooth.
  • Pour mixture into soup and stir.
  • Add basil and parsley and stir until soup begins to thicken.
  • Add vinegar, and salt and pepper to taste.
