Cream of Broccoli Soup
Active Time: 0 minutes • Total Time: 0 minutes
Yields: 4 Servings
- 1 pound Earthbound Farm Organic Broccoli
- 1 potato (about 4 ounces)
- 1 cup sliced leeks
- 4 cups good-quality chicken stock
- 1/3 cup heavy (whipping) cream
- 1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
- Kosher salt
Nothing beats homemade soup, and this is a perennial favorite on cold winter days. The soup is thickened with a small potato, while a bit of cream adds a rich, mellow note. If you avoid dairy in your diet, leave it out; the soup will still be delicious. To make it even easier, you could easily use our Frozen Organic Broccoli.
Combine the broccoli, potato, leeks, and chicken stock in a large pot and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Cover the pan, reduce the heat to maintain a simmer, and cook until the vegetables are tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
Transfer the mixture to a food processor and puree; it may be necessary to do this in bathes. Return the puree to the pot and add the cream. Reheat gently and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve hot.
