Creamy Broccoli Soup

My husband called me today to tell me how cold it is,

I knew how cold it was,

but I decided to play along.

"I wish I could have some soup to warm up." He said.

I played along.

"Yeah that sounds good." I said.

I thought I would surprise him with something good when he got home.

This is how it went....







Ingredients: 4 cups fresh broccoli, 1 large onion, 2 carrots, 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, 5 tablespoons butter, 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour, 4 cups chicken broth, 1/2 cup heavy cream, salt and pepper. 

Simple.


Chop 4 cups broccoli.


Chop 1 large onion.


Chop 2 carrots.


Chop parsley about 2 tablespoons.


Melt 5 tablespoons butter in medium sized pot over medium-to-high heat. Add onion, broccoli, carrots, parsley,salt and pepper and saute until the onion is translucent, about 6-8 minutes.  


Add 3 tablespoons of all-purpose flour to pot and cook for 1-2 minutes until flour is thoroughly mixed in.


Add 4 cups chicken broth. (I used Low-Sodium)


Bring chicken stock to a boil. Simmer until broccoli and carrots are tender, about 15 to 20 minutes.  Pour in 1/2 cup heavy cream. Blend with an immersion blender or food processor to puree the soup. 


Add crackers of your choice, salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!

My husband did.
