Simple & Creamy Broccoli Soup Recipe

Simple & Creamy Broccoli Soup Recipe

Normally I dislike vegetables but I absolutely love this soup. Very few things in the world are both delicious and healthy at the same time, this is surely one of them. I started loving this soup ever since it was served to me outside my Chachi’s farmhouse in Islamabad in a beautiful vintage ceramic bowl with bread sticks. I fell in love with the soup ever since and wanted to try it. So I googled the recipe and came up with my own concoction after gathering ideas from a few websites including BBC foods. Sharing the recipe with you today. Let me know if you love it too 😉

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp butter
  • 2 cloves of chopped garlic
  • Chicken pieces (boneless or with bones)
  • 3 Roughly chopped broccoli
  • 2 Roughly chopped carrots
  • 2 roughly chopped onions
  • 3 peeled and roughly chopped potatoes
  • 1 medium sized green chilly
  • 1/2 – 1 cup milk
  • 1-2 Table spoons of cream
  • Spices (1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper, 1/2 tsp white pepper)

Method

  • In a large pan on medium heat, put some butter (or oil) and add chopped garlic cloves.
  • Add onions and let them fry for about 5 minutes till they’re soft.
  • Add 3 cups of boiling water into the pan along with chicken pieces.
  • Season with all spices.
  • Add all vegetables and let them boil for about half an hour.
  • Check with a fork if potatoes and carrots are soft. When they are, turn the stove off.
  • Take out all chicken pieces. You can re-use them in sandwiches, pizza or even curry later.
  • Put all the vegetables and stock in food processor/grinder. Blend until smooth.
  • Place the liquidized soup back in the pan on medium heat.
  • Add milk and cream and stir well.
  • Serve with croutons (pieces of toast) and garnishing (coriander/mint leaves, cream or spices).

 

 

Highly recommended. You must try. I would love you to share your experience.

Note:

  • If chicken isn’t available, chicken cubes or chicken powder can be used to make stock instead.
  • You can add any available vegetables in the soup too like peas, green onions, red beans, green beans, mushrooms etc.
  • If you want to make a really healthy version of this soup, forget butter, cream and oil. Boil it all, grind and add milk in the end on the stove. It will still be tasty.
