Cream of broccoli soup

I’ve been looking for a recipe that would really showcase the broccoli I’ve been growing in the backyard.  Something a little more impressive than a few steamed florets next to carrots and potato on the side of a plate.

It being winter, I am very partial to any kind of warming soup with a bit of buttered bread on the side.  So after a quick search on the Internet, armed with a knife in one hand, and a recipe card for Martha Stewart’s cream of broccoli soup in the other, I charged into my suburban backyard larder to take what I needed.

It was truly amazing.   I think I’ve found my new favourite soup.   This is a story, told in pictures, about cream of broccoli soup.

    Gorgeous! We love cream of broccoli soup, although I don’t grow the broccoli myself. Funny to think that it is winter in Australia, it’s very hot where I live! I also make pasta and broccoli a lot- quick and easy.

    I was given one broccoli seedling by a colleague which I’ve planted in a pot on my balcony. The caterpillars have eaten nearly all the leaves and the broccoli has started to “fruit”…only to go straight to flower! Bah! What happened – I had so many plants for that one little broccoli.
