Cream Of Broccoli Soup Recipe


    • 4 cups fresh broccoli, chopped
    • 1 onion, finely chopped
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
    • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    • 4 cups vegetable or chicken broth
    • 2 cups whole milk
    • 1 cup heavy cream
    • Salt and pepper to taste
    • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg (optional)
    • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (optional, for garnish)
    • Croutons or bread, for serving


    Prepare the Broccoli:

    Wash and chop the fresh broccoli into small florets. Peel and finely chop the onion, and mince the garlic.

    Sauté Aromatics:

    In a large soup pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and garlic, sautéing until softened and fragrant.

    Make the Roux:

    Sprinkle the flour over the sautéed onions and garlic, stirring constantly to form a roux. Cook for 2-3 minutes until the mixture is golden brown.

    Add Broccoli:

    Add the chopped broccoli to the pot, stirring well to coat it with the roux.

    Pour in Broth:

    Gradually pour in the vegetable or chicken broth while stirring constantly to avoid lumps. Bring the mixture to a simmer and let it cook until the broccoli is tender, about 10-15 minutes.

    Blend the Soup:

    Use an immersion blender to carefully blend the soup until smooth. Alternatively, transfer the soup in batches to a blender, blend until smooth, and return to the pot.

    Add Milk and Cream:

    Pour in the whole milk and heavy cream, stirring well to combine. Allow the soup to simmer for an additional 5-7 minutes, ensuring it’s heated through.

    Season the Soup:

    Season the soup with salt, pepper, and nutmeg (if using). Adjust the seasoning to taste.


    Ladle the cream of broccoli soup into bowls. If desired, garnish with shredded cheddar cheese and serve with croutons or crusty bread.


    Serve the cream of broccoli soup hot and enjoy the comforting warmth and rich flavors!
