Broccoli Soup with Homemade Croutons
delicious, creamy soup"Excellent recipe, was super fast and delicious! My daughter loved it. Note we didn't do the croutons and I put less cream (for calorie consideration and let her add some cream directly to her own bowl which she loved)." - Ivonder2

Broccoli Soup with Homemade Croutons Preparation
Melt 4 tablespoons butter in heavy medium pot over medium-high heat. Add broccoli, onion, carrot, salt and pepper and saute until onion is translucent, about 6 minutes. Add the flour and cook for 1 minute, until the flour reaches a blonde color. Add stock and bring to boil.
Simmer uncovered until broccoli is tender, about 15 minutes. Pour in cream. With an immersion blender, puree the soup. Add salt and pepper, to taste, and then replace the lid back on the pot.
