Broccoli Soup Recipe

Whenever I see fresh broccoli at Pazhamudhir or Nilgiris I pick up a floret without fail.I havent tried anything other than the usual stir fry or rarely add it along with pastas.So this time when I got it, I wanted to try a soup with it.
Broccoli Soup Recipe

I am happy that mittu started liking green cauliflower(broccoli in her language ;)) so another additional reason to buy this veggie often :) Tried jeyashris version which I felt was more indianised and that was the main reason I loved the recipe...It was flavourful, creamy and yummy - exactly how we want our soup to be.

My Notes:
  • You can also stir fry broccoli and top it while serving the soup.
  • For a more richer version use half and half of milk and cream.

  20. All at my home hate it. Once in a while I pick it up only for me. One time I tried chutney using it and served my family without telling it is broccoli. what a surprise.. it was over asa i served. from then, I started to buy it often. It is great to know another recipe of broccoli other than chutney.
