Growing up in the South, we ate green vegetables. When I say that I am referring to greens including collards, turnips and cabbage. Broccoli was an unknown to me and I never even sampled it until I was married and living in Charlotte. I quickly realized I loved it and I especially love fresh broccoli. I have made one attempt of broccoli soup and it was just too green and not very tasty. That is on my list of things I want to make this year. I went to my cookbooks and found these two recipes for broccoli soup. The first one really interests me as I like fresh broccoli so much. However, if you don’t have time to chop the broccoli, the second recipe would be a good alternative. These recipes are from my Cooking With Authority cookbook published by the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Hospital Authority. I am beginning to think it is my cookbook of the month.
If you have any comments or hints that would help me in making a creamy delicious broccoli soup, I would love to hear about it.
It has definitely warmed up here in North Carolina and will be in the 60’s here this weekend. However, I am sure I will have many opportunities to try to make broccoli soup again before the winter season ends.
Hope you have a warm and happy weekend. Thanks for stopping by.
