{via 101 cookbooks}

we’ve been in a big-time soup mood lately. since j loves broccoli (we call them little trees), i thought i’d try out cream of broccoli soup this week. this recipe is from how to cook everything by mark bittman, and it was simple and delish.

cream of broccoli soup

  • 1 lb. of broccoli florets
  • 1 large russet potato, peeled and chopped
  • 4 cups vegetable or chicken broth
  • 1/4 to 1 cup half-and-half , cream, or milk
  • a grating of nutmeg
  • salt and *white* pepper

Add the broccoli, potatoes, broth and bring to a boil. Don’t worry if broth doesn’t completely cover broccoli. Turn heat to low, cover, and simmer until the broccoli and potatoes tender, about 15-20 minutes.

Cool lightly and blend the entire mixture off heat until a smooth puree is achieved.  Return to low heat and warm through but do not boil. Add the cream. Add nutmeg and adjust salt and pepper.

next time i’m trying this recipe from 101 cookbooks.

happy eating! thanks to joslyn from raising foodies for hosting this cooking club. it’s been fun!
