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”
Hop on to her space for the recipe:
Creamy Broccoli Soup
Broccoli – 1, big cut into florets
Onion – 1/2, thinely sliced
Garlic – 1 pod
Potato – 1, small peeled and cut into big chunks
Water – 2 cups
Butter – 1 tsp
Olive oil – 1 tsp
black pepper – to taste
Kosher Salt – as needed
Heavy whipping cream – 3 tbsp
Cheese – 3 tbsp
- Add oil and butter to the pan, and when its hot add onion and garlic, sauté till the onions are translucent
- Add broccoli and potato and sauté for 2 -3 minutes. Add water and cover the lid. Cook till the vegetables are fork tender and switch off. Let it come to room temperature. Put the vegetables in a mixie/ blender along with little vegetable stock and puree them to a smooth texture. Keep the remaining vegetable stock in the pan
- 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
- 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

[…] Creamy Broccoli Soup […]
Looks perfect 😍
delish AND pretty 🙂
I can well imagine your situation with your baby constantly asking for attention. Nice job with the pics, they look perfect!
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 🙂
hmmm right.. well i am not a fan of broccoli 😦
You can try with cauliflower:-)
Congratulations on your guest post! And thanks for introducing SpicesNTreat!
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!
Have a great rest of your day and congrats again on your guest post!
That’s a fab recipe!
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…. 🙂
Mumbai is unusually cold this year, and this soup is just what I need to warm me!
I wish I could send you:-)
Have been thinking of making this soup for a long time, looks awesome Vidya!!!
