Creamy Broccoli Soup – Guest Post for Sujatha

IMG_2735

Couple of months back my friend Sujatha from SpicesNTreat asked me for a guest post, I happily accepted:-)

It took me a while (more than that;-)) to send her the recipe. With my LO running around my legs its difficult to capture pictures and draft. The moment I take the camera he comes behind me:-) Luckily my friends understand my position and do not mind the delay.

I have 2 more posts pending to be sent for my friends, hope I will manage to send it soon:-)

Coming back to this guest post, Few words from Sujatha about her space

“My blog is all about simple and interesting vegetarian recipes and related stories”

  • Transfer the puree to the same pan containing vegetable stock, mix well. Add salt, pepper, and cream. Cook in low heat to avoid curdling. Add cheese and cook till the cheese melts, switch off and enjoy the warm soup

My Notes:

  • Instead of broccoli, cauliflower can also be used
  • Instead of cream, milk can be used
  • If you decide to go vegan, use avocado for the creamy texture and replace butter with oil
  • Instead of kosher salt, regular salt can also be used

    Beautiful soup. I do like a good broccoli soup. As for deadlines for commitments to friends…it’s tough. I’ve done the same thing. It’s part of life, procrastination and priorities 🙂

    This broccoli soup would be the perfect thing for today’s snowy day in New York! I don’t have all the ingredients at home today, but when the weather gets better, I’ll venture out to the store!

    Completely understand how tough it is to manage with little ones around and when they are learning to crawl, walk it’s more difficult…. and your soup looks creamy and comforting V…. 🙂
