Add a sprinkle of your favorite cheese or a dollop of fresh whipped crème before serving.

1 head broccoli cut up or a bag of broccoli tops

splash of water

1small Onion-sliced

1 clove Garlic-chopped

11/2 cups chicken broth (vegetable good too !)

sprinkle of white pepper

 

Using a small soup pot add 1 inch of water just covering the bottom of pot.

Add Broccoli tops

Steam until fork tender. About 7 minutes.

Remove broccoli from pot and set aside. Discard water.

Heat pot

On medium heat add Olive Oil .

Add Onion and cook for 3 minutes. Add Garlic and sauté until onion is transparent.

Add Broccoli,white pepper and broth. Cook for 5 minutes.

Remove from heat.

At this point if you have an emersion blender you can use it now and blend soup until smooth. Place in refrigerator 2 hours.

If you do not have an emersion blender pour the soup into your blender and refrigerate until soup is cool. 2 hours. Then blend once soup is cool.

 

Serve blended chilled soup . Add a dollop of fresh whipped crème if you’d like the classic cream of broccoli soup.

I sprinkled mine with a mild blue cheese and some red peppers today instead.

What I wasn't expecting was that other cultures and flavors would seep into my own traditions and favorites and influence a new batch of classics. Heres to evolving traditions and new memories!
