Cream of Broccoli soup

Saturday, August 03, 2013

The other day I made a pot of cream of broccoli soup as it was a rainy, chilly day. It has warmed up a little since then and the sun came out but it rained all night last night - it was lovely to fall asleep t the sound of the rain.

Makings of broccoli soup:

3 Tbsp butter or olive oil
1/2 onion
1/2 tsp celery seed
2 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup water
1/2 can full fat coconut milk
4 cup broccoli
4 cups zucchini
1 small potato (optional)
1 Tbsp chipolte / sriracha
black pepper, cumin tumeric to taste (i use about 2 tsp each)
* 1 avocado

Saute onion in butter, add celery salt and spices. Then add the rest of the ingredients except for the avocado. When veggies are soft, add the avocado and blend. I use a (immersion) stick blender, straight in the pot rather than do small batches in a blender.

Blended soup

Dished up for lunch:

A batch makes about 6-7 cups of soup, so I have plenty of leftovers for the freezer. It freezes well in individual portion - handy for a quick meal with a salad added.

    The soup looks wonderful! I'm sure it was very warm and filing for you. We had a little bit of everything today, sun, winds and rains. We do need the rain so it's good to see that the majority of the state got some today.

    That looks great for fall, but I can't even think about soup at this time of year. emoticon
