It being National Soup Month and all, I figured I should pick a soup recipe
from the wooden recipe box today.
Imagine my surprise in finding SIX recipes for Broccoli Soup. They were all
cut from newspapers, and each one is a bit different. Was the person who
owned this box really fond of broccoli soup, or was she trying vainly to find
the perfect one that matched a restaurant favorite?
I will never know, but I am sharing one with you today:
Cream of Broccoli Soup A La Decathlon
1/2 small onion, diced
1/2 small carrot, diced finey
1 pkg. frozen broccoli chunks
1/2 c. butter
1/4 c. flour
1 qt. chicken stock
1/2 pint whipping cream
Salt, white pepper, garlic to taste.
Saute the onion, carrot and frozen broccoli in one stick of butter. Add the
flour and cook for 3-4 minutes. Then add chicken stock, whipping cream,
salt, white pepper, and garlic. Check for taste and consistency. Makes 6-8
Sounds pretty fast! And yummy. Happy Soup Month!
