Cream of Broccoli Soup

I love a good bowl of soup.

Not just in the fall or winter, but year long.  I don't believe that soup should only be enjoyed when it's cold outside.

Last night's dinner was soup and Baked Grilled Cheese and Ham Sandwiches.  The soup I chose to make was Cream of Broccoli.

Cream of Broccoli Soup

4 cups chicken broth
Cream of celery (recipe below)
1 package (10 oz) frozen chopped broccoli
1 medium onion, finely chopped
salt, pepper
shredded cheese

In a big pot, add the 4 cups of chicken broth and the cream of celery, bring to a boil.  Add the broccoli, return to a boil and then reduce the heat.  Simmer for 5 minutes or until broccoli is tender.

In a small skillet, cook up the onion until tender, then add the onion to the soup.  Give it a good stir and add a dash of salt and pepper to taste.  Cover and simmer for about 15 minutes or so.

I like to add in a little shredded cheese and then after I serve the soup, I sprinkle in a little more over the top :)


For the cream of celery (instead of using a can, I make my own)
2 1/2 cups of milk
1/2 cup flour
2 tablespoons butter
dash celery seed
dash salt, pepper

Put all ingredients into a blender, and blend until smooth.  That's it.

  7. Thanks for the recipe for the cream of celery. I am allergic to soy and most cream soups in the can have soy in it.
