This Cream of Broccoli Soup recipe is one of them. I actually made it last quarter in my Knife Skills class, but I’ve made it a whole bunch of times since then (it takes some time and effort to scale down and translate a recipe from a culinary textbook into something user-friendly).

It’s absolutely decadent and delicious and you won’t find a tastier way to eat broccoli! That’s a promise.

By the way, if you’ve ever eaten the highly-processed Cream of Whatever broccoli version, this soup might seem foreign. Or martian. It’s pretty spectacular. I literally drink it out of the saucepan when I make it (okay only sometimes).

It’s pretty easy, too. Sweat some vegetables in butter, add flour and broth, simmer. Blend. Add broth and cream. Heat it up again. Done.

You’re welcome.
