Many reader are requesting for the soup recipes for winter season. So here I am again with another soup recipe after sharing mixed veg soup. I have made few different recipes and will be sharing them here one by one.

First time I made a dish using broccoli was about 3-4 years ago. It was tasting really terrible that I have decided I will never cook with it. I must have made some mistake while cooking. But after trying this soup recipe, I am giving the second thought. I am thinking of making paratha. Once we get the used to with taste and flavor of it. Any suggestion/advice is welcomed.

For the extra flavors onion, tomato, garlic and celery are used. These flavors goes well with broccoli.

To make thick soup, all purpose flour is added here. You can use whole wheat flour or cornstarch/corn flour slurry instead.

Before trying this soup recipe, I have done a lot of research and reading about the broccoli. It is important that not to cook broccoli for longer time otherwise it loses its color, nutrition and taste.

This healthy broccoli soup recipe is slightly creamy because of the addition of milk. But if you want more creamy like cream of soups then you can add heavy cream as well, then it won’t be healthy any more. It will be rich. I have mentioned the quantity below.
