This is a take-off on a classic French cream soup. Cream of Broccoli Soup is easy and broccoli is available almost year round and rather inexpensive. No need to sieve this before serving as they might do in a fancy restaurant, it’s good straight from the pot. Serve this with a nice crusty bread and bit of cheese.
There are many embellishments for cream soups. You can make your own croutons, grate a little Gruyere cheese over the soup. Tiny little veal meatballs are a great addition if you have the time.
