About this recipe: A deliciously creamy and hearty soup. Sauteed onions, garlic and carrots are simmered with broccoli, then liquidised and blended with single cream. Perfect with fresh crusty bread.
This soup is so flavorful. Everyone who tasted it loved it. I made some variations to lighten it: I used milk instead of half and half; I used 1 tbsp. butter instead of three; and I also used only 2 tbsp. chicken bouillon granuals with 3 cups water, to decrease the sodium. When prepared in this manner the soup is less than 100 calories per 1 cup serving! Yummy! - 06 Feb 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
A great recipe. I did however, add a little celery and omitted the carrots. Also, I did not puree it, but finely chopped the broccoli. - 23 Feb 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Delicious soup! To lighten it a bit, I cut back on the butter and used milk instead of cream. The results were still creamy and flavorful. Thanks! - 14 May 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
