Quick and Easy Broccoli Cheese Soup Recipe

Quick & Easy Broccoli Cheese Soup


When life gives you lemons, use them to make lemonade”, is an age-old adage used to encourage positivity in any situation you are put into.

Quick & Easy Broccoli Cheese Soup

Well, today I wish to add to make another saying. When life gives you broccoli, use it to make a quick & easy Broccoli cheese soup.
So are you ready to make a delicious creamy broccoli soup with me? The best part of this soup is filling and very easy to make.  Yet it is a different soup, unlike the regular ones we make eg - Tomato or Spinach soup.  It is very healthy and has fab nutrient content.


This Broccoli soup was made with a twist. I added a dash of Parmesan Cheese to it. I have used Dlecta There’s just something magical about a hearty bowl of soup in your belly sipping warm soup as you watch your favorite TV aerial on the weekend.




Ingredients



1 tablespoon butter
1 chopped onion
3 cups fresh broccoli
1 potato
1/2 teaspoon  thyme (optional)
1 Chicken Stock Cube ( can use veg option)
2 garlic pods
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tbsp fresh cream
1 heaped tbsp fresh parmesan cheese.



Quick & Easy Broccoli Cheese Soup


Method



1. Take a large saucepan, melt the butter and lightly saute the garlic.
2. Add the chopped onion, broccoli flowerets and chopped potato to this. Stir for about two minutes until vegetables soften
3. Now add the chicken cube, one glass of water to this. Simmer until broccoli is softened, about 8 minutes.
4. For faster results pressure cooker this for one whistle or maximum 5 minutes. We don't want to overcook it as the nutrients get destroyed.
5. Now transfer the vegetables into a blender and make a fine paste of it.
6. Place it back in the saucepan on low flame.to simmer. Add the pepper and thyme at this stage.
7. Lastly, add fresh cream.  At this stage no not add any water as the taste will get adulterated.
8. Turn off the heat and continue whisking until thick and bubbly.
9. Stir in cheeses & serve immediately. You can serve it with soup sticks or garlic bread.


Note 


You can even take the stems of Broccoli for this recipe.
The color of the soup can vary from yellow-green to light green. But that doesn't matter as you are definitely going to love the warm mushy soup.
