I do not like broccoli. And I haven’t liked it since I was a little kid and my mother made me eat it. I am President of the United States, and I’m not going to eat any more broccoli. – George Bush
I hope you don’t have the same aversion to broccoli that George Bush does, because this is a very good soup and I’d hate for you to miss out on it. It’s warm, creamy and comforting.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 bunch fresh broccoli
- 2 sticks butter
- 2 cans chicken broth
- 1 cup flour
- 4 cups milk
- salt and pepper to taste
- Cut the broccoli into bite-size pieces.
- Steam it in 1/2 cup water until tender. Don’t drain.
- In a soup pot, melt the butter.
- Whisk in the flour and cook for a few minutes.
- Whisk in the broth. Bring to a boil and then lower the heat until it thickens.
- Add the milk, broccoli, salt and pepper.

Broccoli soup is amazing! I have a different recipe: http://alison.blogsome.com/2009/08/03/monday-dinner-menu-planner-13/ It’s so warm, and delicious and you’re getting a good veggie! 🙂

Hi-I just made this. My husband loved it, my kids not so much. Will it freeze well? I have a lot left over! Thanks!
I’m not sure how well it will freeze, but if you can’t eat it all you aren’t out anything to try it. If you add cheese, do you think you convince your kids to give it another go? Cheese sometimes works for my kids.
