My Sister's Cream of Broccoli Soup
This soup was a staple at my sister's table every Thanksgiving and Christmas. I was able to enjoy it once or twice when I was lucky enough to share Christmas with my family. My sister has moved on from this once-upon-a-time holiday staple but I frequently make it. It is perfect for a light lunch especially if I omit the cream in the recipe. As a note, my father uses this same base recipe for a garlic soup.
4 Tablespoons flour
6 cups chicken broth
½ cup of heavy cream-you can omit this and increase your broccoli amount for richness
Return to pot if using a counter puree method and add the cream. Cook until hot without boiling.
