recipe box Wednesday

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!
