4 tablespoons Butter
1 1/2 pounds Fresh broccoli
1 Onion
1 Carrot
3 tablespoon All purpose flour
4 cup Low-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup Cream

Original recipe makes 4



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.

For croutons:

Day old French bread

Olive oil

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Cut bread into cubes and place in a large bowl. Drizzle cubes with olive oil, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. Mix well.

Spread seasoned bread onto a sheet pan and bake for about 15 minutes.

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).
